• How technology more broadly, including automation, Evolutionary Algorithms, the Internet of Things, and Fog computing, is going to drastically change the operational future of all organizations;
• Why a futurist’s approach to risk and risk management is different from the conventional view, and what Internal Auditors can gain by adding it to their toolkit;
• Why Internal Audit must continue to shift towards forward-looking as well as backward checking for the welfare of their organizations;
• The trends that are affecting industry, global trade, government, not-for-profits, education, and society, and how you can prepare for the changes to come
