Audit and risk professionals, unite! The countdown is on to Amplify 2023 and the agenda is jam-packed with risky business! With so many incredible speakers and informative, insightful governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) sessions to choose from, we wanted to highlight some you’ll want to consider attending.

Keep reading to learn more about the five GRC sessions we recommend as you start to finalize your schedule for Amplify 2023:

IIA President and CEO Anthony J. Pugliese, CIA, CPA, CGMA, CITP is coming to Nashville, and you don’t want to miss the chance to sit in on this discussion! As someone who regularly interacts with internal audit leaders across the globe, Anthony will bring a unique perspective and share more on the current state of internal audit, what the future holds for the profession, and how internal auditors can take on greater leadership roles within their organizations. Get excited!

If one of your audit team’s biggest challenges is keeping everyone on the same page—from executive leadership to external auditors—then you’re going to want to join three audit and risk super users from StoneX Group Inc. Join Tayler Kuhn, Global Head of IT Audit, Jeanne Cline, Director, Internal Audit, and Jack Nelson, IT Analyst, to hear about how they’re using the Workiva platform to enhance collaboration and build trust. They’ll share best practices for getting stakeholders more involved and how they’ve found success using the platform to communicate key information in a way that is meaningful.

With an increasingly complex regulatory environment and the need to ensure ESG data integrity, internal auditors have an opportunity to make an impact and help guide their organizations through the complex ESG landscape. Join internal audit leaders, including our own Head of Internal Audit, Ruth Nouanesengsy, Bob Moderick, Head of Internal Audit at Patrick Industries, and Keri Tracy, Vice President, Operational Excellence and SOX at Newell Brands, as they discuss the common challenges they’ve faced along the path to ESG assurance, ways to overcome these obstacles, and the importance of building strong relationships with ESG stakeholders.

Explore how you can make your data management and reporting more effective in the Workiva platform! Mike Callino, Senior Director of Internal Audit at Braze, and other audit leaders will walk through how they use the Workiva platform to transform data into powerful insights that can be used to guide the business and accelerate report development. Plus, they’ll share how to benefit from data analytics and data-driven risk assessments.

So technically this is more than one session, but Amplify presents the perfect opportunity to brush up on Workiva platform basics or dive into advanced features, share insights and best practices with your peers, and get up to speed on what’s new. That’s why we recommend these three product-focused sessions:

  • Workiva for GRC 201: The Advanced User’s Course—Ready to level up your use of the Workiva platform? Join this advanced workshop to go in depth on capabilities like report builder as you look to increase efficiency.
  • Exploring the Workiva Platform: What’s New in GRC—Join our product management team to discover the latest features and product enhancements that will help you save time, improve collaboration, and gain deeper data insights.
