LJM speaks at the 2012 ACIIA annual conference

MG 6 Head, Risk Leader and Chief Risk Officer Leo Matignas (LJM) was one of the guest speakers during the recently concluded 2012 Annual Conference of the Asian Confederation of Institute of Internal Auditors (ACIIA) held at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center in Bangkok, Thailand. Leo is a past ACIIA president and is the only Filipino elected to this post so far. He discussed the roles and challenges of the internal auditors in combined assurance, considering that the Board requires assistance from different process and risk owners to provide assurance that their respective areas are fully covered and there are no significant risks being overlooked. The conference was attended by over a hundred internal auditors across Asia.

Prior to the regular conference, Leo was also asked to be a resource speaker and representative of IIA’s Global Advocacy Committee (for which he is a member) to discuss the Global Advocacy Platform during the IIA-ACIIA Leadership Forum held in October.
