Speaking about internal controls

Good governance, risk management and internal controls are essential to any organisation or group of organisations that deems itself mature. It’s been a pleasure to speak about their relevance at the FGS Finance top 400 meeting on May 12th. 400 top managers of the FGS had come together for a day long discussion on the topic, and asked me to join them to discuss my thoughts. I did some further development on a presentation and white paper I wrote a while back.

For those interested, here is the entire lecture text in Dutch. It uses a specific airplane accident to illustrate some of the key points I consider essential when implementing internal control systems in organisations.

The text of the speech is in Dutch, but in case someone is interested, I’m certainly willing to provide an English translation.
