How To Create Effective And Efficient Internal Control: The Ultimate "How To" Course
|Date / Time:
This webinar is geared exclusively to two main areas of emphasis. The COSO framework is first presented as the go-to technical reference framework for internal control that is internationally accepted and is much broader than most professionals realize. The COSO framework sets a high bar for the fully functioning internal control system. Then the practical "how to implement" emphasis presents the best control procedures, what is absolutely required, the policies and procedures you must have, the concepts that make internal controls clear, and the good ideas that may work for you.
A large menu of internal control policies and procedures are clearly described and made available for your adoption. You will gain a working knowledge of key elements and specific procedures of internal control that will benefit any organization, their external advisors, their management and financial staff, the board of directors and all stakeholders of the organization.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
