Particularly at this time of year, which we consider the ‘peak final audit season’, you’ll find yourself spending a considerable amount of time on site with clients (final audit season is also the peak period of client interaction for many of us across the office). Some of the recent training courses I’ve attended have been extremely useful in making sure that I am able to tackle the challenges that the ‘peak’ throws my way as an audit lead. more… How I got ready to lead on an audit
