No matter what type of audit you are involved in it is essential that it starts and finishes well. Opening and closing meetings offer the forum to do this. A well run and professional opening meeting sets the scene for the audit and, if done well, creates a great first impression. Likewise, a well run closing meeting draws the audit to a close in a professional and controlled manner. TIP – if you are being audited, see how many of these points the auditor covers!
