An auditor may perform an audit in accordance with all of the professional standards and still have a substandard audit IF they do not Walk, Talk, Look and Listen. If there's a problem, someone knows. This program highlights the way an auditor (or really anyone else) can discover problems within an organization by making themselves available, talking to individuals, listening to what they have to say (no matter how dull it is) and observing. Chance are the participants will never look at an audit the same after this presentation.
