How Isabelle is building a better working world

“In my role, I constantly ask if we can do better. I consistently ask tough questions in our audits and provide a timely, constructive challenge to management and a robust, clear perspective to audit committees. My objective is to lead the development of trust and high standards within financial services. Transparency breeds clarity. Clarity breeds confidence. Without upholding these high standards, we cannot expect to progress and build a better working world.

Alongside my work in Assurance, I am a champion for nurturing talent and diversity in our organization. I readily welcome and encourage positive change and actively build inclusive teams. This is essential to providing services to clients and for our own organization. I continue to encourage and mentor Diversity & Inclusiveness in order to achieve this goal.”
