At a series of focus group meetings with ACCA members working in internal audit earlier this year, ACCA found that culture is seen as a challenging and subjective topic but an area of interest for all members.
In response to this feedback, ACCA UK’s Internal Audit Network has invited Barclays Bank to present a webinar on how to audit culture.
Alison Smith - an internal audit director at Barclays – will explain how Barclays Bank audited its culture following the financial crisis and learned some valuable lessons that enabled it to improve its culture.
About the speaker: Alison is a Director in Barclays Internal Audit (BIA), responsible for audit coverage of Compliance, HR, Legal and Corporate Relations, and driving audit coverage of conduct and culture across the firm. Since joining BIA in 2001, Alison has held a variety of leadership positions in audit delivery and audit operations. Her involvement in risk culture began in 2013 when she was seconded to lead a workstream of a Barclays-wide cultural transformation programme focusing on instilling a risk mind-set into the DNA of the firm.
