Audit Conference

Mark down October 29-30, 2015 on your calendar for the annual ASQ Audit Conference.

The theme for the 2015 conference will be “Audits: Improving Performance, Managing Risk, Driving Customer Satisfaction and Revenue”. The conference will be held at the Peppermill Resort, Spa, and Casino in Reno, Nevada.

Conference Overview:

To achieve effective results, auditors are expected to influence managerial decision making with their audit findings. This conference focuses on the auditor’s role in identifying quality system issues to improve performance and processes, revenue, and customer satisfaction, including management planning and the decision making process.

It is also the objective of this conference to keep auditors exposed to realizing and managing risk specific to quality, changes to standards, innovations in communications, and ever-changing material, approaches and techniques, in the auditing discipline.

This conference will provide you with many opportunities to increase your audit knowledge and hone your audit skills, as well as many networking opportunities. Keynote presenters from a diverse section of business, education and industry will provide one, two and three day pre-conference tutorials and workshops, as well as two prime “keynote” addresses by selected speakers.

The conference program includes four tracks for assisting auditors to help unlock their potential. These are:

1. Revealing the Path to Process Improvement and Performance Excellence
2. Influencing the Journey to Improve Revenue and Customer Satisfaction
3. Risk Based Thinking from the Quality Perspective – what is it and how do we apply it?
4. Design & Construction Track
