Effective Communication and Writing Skills for Senior Auditors


Communication is more than writing correctly in terms of grammar and avoiding factual mistakes. Tone, clarity, purpose, usefulness, completeness and timeliness are also essential for effective communication. This course, designed for mid and higher-level internal auditors, provides targeted communication strategies and effective influencing skills for interacting with internal audit’s various stakeholders. You will learn tools and techniques to enhance your verbal and written communication skills. We will examine ways to build better team and client relationships, how to write more persuasive audit reports, and how to become more persuasive and influential to bring about positive change within our organisations. You will learn how to deal with disagreement, deliver negative audit results, frame observations in business terms, partner with your clients, and help them value internal audit’s recommendations.
