Background and Vision // agenda and speakers www.nordiclight.fi

”Leaving a Mark by Working Together”

IIA Finland is the proud host of the Nordic Light Audit Executive Seminar 2017, which will strengthen the Nordic and Baltic collaboration. We are looking forward to welcoming you all to Helsinki and Kirkkonummi on the 9-10 February 2017.

Nordic Light signifies a new collaboration between the IIA institutes in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway and Sweden. The initiative stems from the fact that in the Nordic and Baltic region institutes are relatively small, which makes it more difficult to provide the members with the professional education and development opportunities they deserve. By combining our experiences and our resources, we can raise the level of the service we provide our members to new heights. Additionally, as a collective, the region could have a bigger impact within IIA Global.

Nordic Light Audit Executive Seminar 2017 is planned to strengthen the bond between the Nordic and Baltic institutes and their members. It is our goal that the Nordic Light seminar continues a fruitful collaboration between the IIA institutes in the Nordic and Baltic region.
