“Alone we can do so little, Together we can do so much” (-Helen Keller)
Nordic Light signifies a new collaboration between the IIA institutes in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway and Sweden. The initiative stems from a common problem, that in the Nordic and Baltic region each institute is relatively small. This has made it more difficult to provide the members in this region with the professional education and development opportunities they deserve. By combining our experiences and our resources, we can bring the level of the service we provide our members to new heights. Additionally, as a collective, the region would have a bigger impact within IIA Global.
The mission of the IIA is to provide dynamic leadership for the global profession of internal auditing. Activities in support of this mission include providing comprehensive professional educational and development opportunities. Internal audit leaders play an essential part in realising the vision of the organisation, which is why it is only natural to launch this collaboration with an event for this particular group.
Nordic Light Audit Executive Seminar 2015 is not planned to be a single event but rather the first milestone in the mission to strengthen the bonds between the Nordic and Baltic institutes and its members. It is our hope that this seminar lays the foundation to a long a fruitful collaboration between the IIA institutes in the Nordic and Baltic region.
