Peer-to-peer exchanges

Our well established “Conversation with…” series comprises regular supported conversations featuring the speakers you want to hear, talking about the subjects that are important to you. At the heart of the programme are discussions with regulators, investors and auditors seeking to address the core competencies of a committee chair, together with topics of relevance to you in your wider board role.

Previous speakers have included Sir Jon Thompson; Sir Donald Brydon; former special assistant to President George W Bush, Dr Pippa Malmgren; and TUC Director General, Frances O’Grady.

Contributing to the regulatory debate

Audit committees have an important voice in the regulatory debate. We provide a ‘light-touch’ framework for discussing those regulatory developments and consultations of particular importance to audit committees – ideally with the relevant regulatory body. We aim to provide regulators and policy makers with a high-quality summary of the debate and an indication of the ‘strength of feeling’ attached to key issues.

Resources, tools and a website to help you

Our website hosts an extensive range of publications, which encompass everything from a concise but comprehensive Handbook aimed specifically at improving audit committee effectiveness; to short technical updates in timely response to regulatory developments such as audit reform. All our publications are always available via our website www.kpmg.com/uk/blc.

Induction – hitting the ground running

For any new director, but especially when joining an audit committee, a learning curve comes with the territory. Just how steep that learning curve is can hinge directly on the quality of the induction programme. Our FTSE100 audit and risk committee chairs’ programme can assist you to induct new members to your committee by providing guidance and resources to help new audit committee members hit the ground running together with bespoke one-to-one sessions with KPMG specialists.
