Helping Chief Audit Executives (CAE) and professionals with
technical & soft-skills training and coaching
to navigate the minefields of audit, risk and compliance.

What Would You Like To Do?

I typically work with chief audit executives and professionals in internal audit, risk management & compliance providing the technical and soft-skills necessary to navigate the landmines of organizations. Sexy & important topics.

I take complicated, confusing & hard things, make them practical, proactive & simple. Technical & soft-skills training and coaching using Multi-Sensory LearningTM methods to improve retention and get transformation. Teach to fish, not heroin-addict consulting. Work smarter, not harder.

I've seen both sides of the corporate fence & have been in your shoes. I have academic training, practical experience, with many TLAs after my name.

I use psychology, science, mindfulness & music to create a contemporary, holistic, & provocative approach (cutting through the BS) helping you avoid wasting time & money. You quit going down rabbit holes or worrying about swatting mosquitos.

Chief Audit Executive, Chief Risk Officer, Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer, Head of Information Security ... yep, been there and done that ... in addition to consulting and training top organizations all over the world, developing international standards and certifications, being a top thought leader, author, and #1 podcast host in the world for internal audit.

How Can I Help You?

  • Do you need an engaging, entertaining, expert professional speaker or MC for your conference, company meeting or team training?
  • Do you need a facilitator for your executive retreat or team meeting?
  • Do you need someone to take technical, complex issues and make them practical and easy to understand?
  • Do you have training budget, but can't travel, and need innovative solutions to get you and your team the training you need?
  • Do you need to develop relationships with others in the organization to improve collaboration (increase your influence)?
  • Do you want to establish common controls to reduce duplication and ensure compliance regulations and mandates are followed?
  • Are you a Chief Audit Executive who would like to be a member of a safe, confidential space to discuss real challenges and opportunities, share best practices, get support, and bounce ideas off others in a CAE Roundtable?
