Join Norman Marks and Paul Sobel for a conversation about what it takes to have a world-class internal audit function. Norman Marks, who is not only an OCEG Fellow but an Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Risk Management, led the internal audit activity at global corporations for about 20 years; he is the author of World-Class Internal Audit: Tales from my Journey and a new book, World Class Risk Management. Paul is the Vice President/Chief Audit Executive of Georgia-Pacific LLC and a former Chairman of The Institute of Internal Auditors.
