Internal Audit - Your Agent and Catalyst For Growth

Building the Next Generation of Family Businesses

This workshop will discuss the role of the Internal Audit function, it's value proposition, and through the use of actual examples, illustrate how Internal Audit is a vital tool for ensuring Senior Management and Boards of Directors perform their duties to the best of their abilities.

Modern-day Internal Audit functions also assist Audit Committees and Management teams, through a variety of assurance and non-assurance (Consulting) services.

Internal Audit functions act as trusted, independent advisers, subscribing to and abiding strictly by principles such as integrity, objectivity and confidentiality. These hallmark principles, held together by teams of multi-skilled and disciplined personnel, will help organisations create and preserve value.

About the Series - Building the Next Generation of Family Businesses

The unique foundation of family businesses is in its interaction between the business and the owners – the family. By drawing on trust, stability and flexibility, many family businesses have been able to prosper. However, despite these advantages, the foundation of family businesses also has its vulnerabilities; two in three family businesses do not survive past the first generation. Given the turbulent business environment of Myanmar in the recent years, it is imperative for family businesses to address certain key issues to guarantee their survival and to remain competitive.

The first advantage of family-owned businesses lies in the more personal approach of conducting business on the basis of trust. By nurturing loyalty, commitment, and stewardship, trust within the family can serve as the cement for competitive advantage and sustainable growth for family businesses. Trust in family businesses is anchored in the family's values and vision, resulting in strong managerial commitment and loyalty that can be difficult for non-family businesses to replicate. This commitment can lead to benefits such as stronger customer relations and a highly productive workforce.
