Ladies and Gentlemen,

On behalf of the Board of the Czech Institute of Internal Auditors, it is a pleasure and my honor to invite you to an international conference on internal audit entitled FUTURE OF INTERNAL AUDIT – value, transparency, respect, which we organize to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Czech Institute of Internal Auditors. The professional part of the conference will be held on 15 – 16 October 2020 in the premises of the congress hotel Pyramida. You will also be able to enjoy the gala evening taking place in the historical premises of the Lobkowicz Palace, which is part of the Prague Castle complex.

The theme of the conference is represented by three terms, which we believe are closely related to the internal audit profession. By its nature, internal audit should add value to the company. Its work should be totally transparent and at the same time contribute to transparent corporate governance, and of course the respect that internal auditors gain through their professional approach and also show it in their work to all cooperating parties. These three attributes of strong internal audit are the basis for success in an ever-changing environment and at the same time the basis for a successful internal audit future.

Our conference will give you an insight into the future of internal audit not only through internationally recognized experts in the profession, but also interesting and valuable opinions from experts in related areas of internal audit. One of the key moments of the conference will be the speech by Vice-President of the European Commission, Věra Jourová, for whom the concepts of value, transparency and respect are crucial for fulfilling the vision of the European Commission.

Dear ladies and gentlemen, come to the conference to celebrate 25 years of ČIIA with us and enjoy the beautiful and relaxing atmosphere of spring Prague.

I look forward to seeing you there

Tomáš Pivoňka
Chairman of the Board, The Czech Institute of Internal Auditors
