IIA President Richard F. Chambers Featured on C-SPAN
Leadership talk to Washington, D.C., internal audit group to air Sunday
ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. (Oct. 3, 2014) — Unique leadership insight gleaned from a career in government, the private sector, and the nonprofit world will air this weekend as C-SPAN features a presentation on Lessons Learned on the Audit Trail, a book by Richard F. Chambers, president and CEO of The Institute of Internal Auditors.
The hour-long program premieres at 5:45 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 5, as part of C-SPAN’s Booknotes series. It was filmed in late September during Chambers’ book presentation to a government auditing conference hosted by The IIA’s Washington, D.C., chapter. A second showing is scheduled to air at 7 a.m. Monday, Oct. 6.
Chambers, CIA, QIAL, CGAP, CCSA, CRMA, has spent nearly 40 years in internal audit roles that took him from Inspector General at the Tennessee Valley Authority to PwC advisory leader to his current role leading the world’s largest organization representing the interests of internal auditors.
Published by The IIA Research Foundation, Lessons Learned on the Audit Trail offers a fresh perspective of internal auditing as a rewarding career. Unlike most auditing texts, the book is not about numbers or how to plan and perform an audit. Instead, Chambers explains the lessons that auditors don’t learn in school, in a remarkable story that spans time zones, industries, and top levels of government. Its real-world advice is based on a wealth of professional experiences that had Chambers rubbing elbows with top military brass, Cabinet secretaries, and titans of industry.
