Robert Berry will be the instructor and he is known as "That Audit Guy".
Robert believes the ultimate goal in business is to improve people, processes and profits. Every organization exists to make some sort of profit. Behind every profit is a series of business processes that must be in sync. But behind every process is a person. People are the heartbeat of every organization and need to be developed and supported.
Robert has spent the better part of his career trying to bring out the best in people. As a result, you will find that his training courses are practical and actionable. The compelling content typically contains good visuals to stimulate recall along with clear and concise language. As a service provider, Robert's approach is honest yet empathetic. The internal audit funciton and management can work together to evaluate processes in an organization to bring out the best in everyone.
Robert has worked as an auditor and an accountant in small and multi billion dollar organizations. You will find the standard alphabet soup behind his name (CPA, CIA, etc), but improving people, processes and profits is what matters most.
