On 18 March 2021 the UK Government's Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy issued a 232 page consultation document "Restoring trust in audit and corporate governance: Consultation on the government’s proposals."
This is part of the response to several major corporate failures in recent years and it could lead to major changes in the way UK companies are governed and audited.
As a member of the Policy Team, I am helping the United Kingdom Shareholders Association ("UKSA") to write its response to the consultation.
On 21 April 2021 the Control and Risk Self-Assessment Forum ("CRSA Forum") held an online event called "Perspectives on Audit and Governance Reform" to discuss the consultation document and the issues more generally.
I gave a 10-minute presentation "Audit and corporate reporting – A Shareholder View." You can watch it below.
I am happy to share the original PowerPoint slide presentation.
My first presentation recording was done on the spur of the moment, just putting my iPhone 6 on the table and relying on its built in microphone. See my page Lecture: The Quran recognises religious freedom.
Once I found recording presentations worthwhile, I purchased a high quality Sennheiser digital lapel microphone which plugs into the lightning port of my iPhone. That produces a much better recording.
I recommend reading the articles linked below. The first of them is the page about Bruce Wayne (Batman) which I mention during my talk.
