Leading Practices in Internal Audit

Best practice in governance, risk and assurance continues to evolve rapidly.

Effective leaders need to make calculated decisions on when to be an innovator, when to be an early adopter, when to be a fast-follower and when to watch from the sidelines.

Organisations need to decide when they will pave the way for others to follow, and when to implement ideas after only they’ve already been tested.

Most organisations and teams need access to precedents, and people who have ‘been there and done that’, and to teams who are experienced in innovation and change.

This is where we come in.


Taking your organisation to the next level

TDA works with Australia’s leading risk and assurance teams to help them define and implement the right approaches for their organisation.

We help leading organisations to work through new challenges and set new norms.

We also work to codify these practices and share our expertise to help put these ideas into practice once they have been tested and ‘de-risked’ by others.


Track record of innovation and results

Todd Davies has a track record of redefining governance, risk and internal audit practices for more than a decade.

The Todd Davies and Associates team has been helping Australia’s leading audit and risk teams to turn these ideas into reality.

From our world-leading work with the ASX Corporate Governance Council on material business risk, to our work with helping the big 4 roll out risk-based internal audit for the first time, their first forays into enterprise risk management, through to reshaping the assurance functions of some of Australia’s best known brands, we have constantly been at the vanguard of audit and risk practice for more than a decade.


How we can help you

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to corporate governance, risk or assurance.

We can help you determine which ideas to pursue, which practices to apply, and how to get the most out of the resources you have.

We act as a sounding board, architect and coach and can also assist with implementation if required.

We help you define and refine your vision, identify the leading practices to get you there, and assist with implementation with required.

We also help you prioritise to get the greatest impact and implement quickly to ensure that you’ve got the most effective risk and assurance functions.
