As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been quite active on goingconcern.com and the forum. Despite the fact I’m not an external auditor, there’s often some good discussion topics.

During my working life, I’ve worked for a tremendous number of firms, either by virtue of employment or as a consultant. I use the term consultant loosely; this covers a multitude of roles, either as co-sourced or insourced Auditor, contractor or temp. As Internal Auditors we often get to see the whole organisation rather than a brief insight which would happen in a 9 to 5 operational role. My latest firm is simply a disaster area; there are control breakdowns, ineffective controls, over control, control weaknesses and absent controls. This had me thinking on a couple of fronts.
