Delegates attending the event will see presentations from Manchester City Council, existing users of the Sword Audit Manager solution, as well as be able to participate in group discussions and network with Local Government peers.
Panel presentations and interactive discussion will inform and educate on the topic of audit and compliance, to provide insights and ideas that delegates can take back and apply in their own organisation.

Keith Ricketts, Vice President of Global Marketing at Sword GRC said; “We are delighted to be hosting this event specifically for a Local Government audience. Increasingly local authorities are reviewing their internal audit provision and looking for support to assist their processes, which has stimulated demand for audit and compliance solutions. This, along with the desire to introduce additional levels of oversight and monitoring for internal audits and controls, makes our workshop very relevant.
“The presentations and discussions will focus on hot topics and best practice that will inspire debate, encourage engagement and ultimately broaden expertise such that delegates will be able to add real value and insight back into their organisations.”
