"I have hired Arie to implement a pragmatic yet conceptually sound operational risk management cycle, focusing on Staalbankiers critical risks and controls. Arie completed this in a very limited timescale, the outcome is practicable, sustainable and well documented. Altogether an excellent job done. Top Qualities: Personable, On Time, High Integrity" Francis Pickott, Finance Director - Staalbankiers "I have had the pleasure of seeing Arie present at various international conferences over the past years and have always been impressed by his speaking skills. He manages to make the topic of continuous auditing and monitoring come alive by explaining the concept and benefits in practical terms, based on his own experiences. He is a natural and convincing presenter, who I have seen engage diverse audiences at conferences in at least four countries in Europe and South America." John Verver, Vice President - ACL Services Ltd "Arie is a key expert on Continuous Auditing and innovative audit operations. Having been a guest speaker in a few conferences that I organised in the past, Arie has exceptional knowledge of implementing continuous auditing programmes in corporate environments, understanding the critical success factors for implementation and perhaps most importantly - communicating with management to gain their support while showing them bottom-line success and cost savings through better audit operations systems." Robert Milstein, Independent Finance Conference Producer "Arie is an informed and engaging thought-leader and speaker in the internal audit field. He has an ongoing success story in the use of technology for governance, risk, compliance and controls monitoring issues within a global financial organization.
