Starting early 2012 we have start working with the Finance Innovation Lab and the Institute for Chartered Accountants of England and Wales to develop a new program of collaborative work called Audit Futures on rethinking the role of the audit profession in post-financial crisis world.
“The goal of the AuditFutures initiative is to create a space that currently does not exist, to ask big questions about the future of the audit profession. It aims at creating opportunities for dialogue between stakeholders who normally do not talk to one another, and at building relationships, trust and greater understanding between those stakeholders. This proven approach will create an opportunity for collaborative and creative solutions to emerge.”
Together with Myrgan we hosted the first assembly in June 2012. Over 120 diverse stakeholders participated in this one day event. You can get a impression of the day by reading this great harvest document. This assembly was the first in a series of events aimed at identifying and incubating collaborative projects that can help transition the profession to a more innovative and sustainable future.
