Breakfast briefing:  RSA House, Durham House Street, London, WC2N 6HG – Thursday 5th October 2023 / 8:30 am – 11.30am  /Reform is underway with new standards in place for audit committees bringing new responsibilities and fresh scrutiny for auditors. Meanwhile a review of the UK’s corporate governance code will usher in a strengthened regime for internal controls and a focus on corporate resilience.

The changes promise a major adjustment in board work as audit committees come to terms with demands for more rigour in key elements of the financial reporting and disclosure process, and their relationship with external auditors.

This free breakfast briefing from Board Agenda and Diligent explores these key elements in the drive for audit reform and how it will affect key corporate functions.

Chaired by Board Agenda editor Gavin Hinks, panel guests will explore:

  • The key elements of the reforms.
  • How audit committees will be affected and whether their relationship with auditors will change?
  • How companies will demonstrate resilience and whether it will change the way boards think about risk?
  • The most demanding elements of redrawn internal controls provisions.
  • How internal audit will feature in an altered risk landscape and whether it will gain increased importance.


  • Rania Bejjani, Audit, Risk and Internal Controls Expert
  • Tracy Gordon, Director, Deloitte UK Centre for Corporate Governance
  • Michael Lucas Founding Partner, Brave Within, Audit & Enterprise Risk Specialist 


At this exclusive in-person event  senior corporate governance, audit and risk experts, will review the implications of UK audit and corporate governance reform, how governance and compliance professionals should prepare their companies, and the key questions boards should be asking.

Spaces are limited so please do register your interest today.
