Simulation for In-Charge Auditors

a fully immersive role play

This fully immersive, two-day role play simulation builds the skills required to successfully supervise financial statement audits. Participant teams are tasked with planning and performing interim test work for a fictitious company, culminating in a presentation to the engagement partner. To achieve that goal they must work effectively with the client, juggle multiple responsibilities, supervise staff and manage unexpected developments.

With our help, firm managers coach the participants through the simulation, creating a unique learning opportunity for both staff and managers.
