Are your audit leadership skills working to get the job done?

This in-person event is focused on helping attendees in mastering the skills necessary to efficiently lead audit teams. This course provides new leaders with the tools needed to effectively lead audit teams, while exploring the life cycle of an audit from an audit leader's perspective.

"This course is not just for auditors or new audit leaders, it is for anyone who wants an understanding of the relationship between business objectives, risk, control, assessment and reporting."

 

During this course, you will examine and practice the skills needed to lead by learning how to supervise and develop an audit team, manage change, and effectively manage relationships with not only your team, but also with the CAE, executive management, and the audit committee.

 

This course is designed for internal auditors with 2-10 years of experience who want to learn the concepts, tools, and techniques to enhance their effectiveness as an audit manager.

 

We use this delivery approach to allow for a focus on individual development and learning from our very experienced auditor educators.

Speaker and Presenter Information

John C. Blackshire, Jr., CPA is the CEO of The Accountware Group, Inc. (TAG) of Austin, TX. He has over 40 years of business management, internal control, software development and auditing experience. TAG helps companies improve their business processes, implement financial systems, and comply with the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

During John's career, he has conducted internal control audits, designed business operations, implemented automated financial systems, and created quality control methodologies. He has written numerous articles, system user guides, presented continuing education seminars, and published booklets on best practices in accounting, finance and information technology management.

John started his professional career at KPMG as a financial auditor. His clients included insurance companies, banks, manufacturing firms and non-profits. A number of his clients were public companies.

He moved from Public Accounting into the application software business. The first software firm focused its products on the application software needs of the insurance industry. At this firm, he work in the development of new products, supporting existing products, providing consulting assistance to clients and the direct sale of software. These applications included general accounting, investment accounting, procure to pay, policy process, claims process and administrative applications. His development and support activities included designing and setup of what is now called "artificial intelligence" driven applications. One of these applications used phonics driven rules to determine the names to return from a data base to assist in policy holders services. This application was also used by the FBI to identify possible suspects within their know "criminal" data base using a phonics driven lookup.

Blackshire moved from an insurance industry focused software supplier to one that was the first to offer data base processing in the ERM space in the early 1980s. At this firm, he spend several years in the financial software business designing, supporting, consulting and selling financial systems to the cross industry marketplace.

John received his undergraduate degree in accounting from the University of South Carolina. He is a member of the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) and helped plan their International Conference, and is a member of the international business fraternity Delta Sigma Pi and the honors accounting fraternity Beta Alpha Psi. John and David Marshall have been presenting informative and entertaining seminars on internal control, corporate governance and Sarbanes-Oxley Act compliance since 2003.
