|The European Audit Committee Leadership Network (EACLN) is a group of audit committee chairs, drawn from Europe's leading companies, who are committed to improving the performance of audit committees and enhancing trust in financial markets. |
Convened by Ernst & Young's European leadership and produced by Tapestry Networks, the EACLN meets three times a year in major European cities. Its private dialogues help develop practical insights and solutions to enhance the functioning of financial markets and strengthen relationships among the firm, leading companies and their directors.
Thought leadership created in European ACLN dialogues is captured and published by Tapestry to a wider audience. The paper Leading risk management practices captures the leading practices that have helped EACLN members improve risk management at their companies. Guest speaker Nick Hirons, Vice President at GlaxoSmithKline, discussed how an integrated risk management and compliance system has helped coordinate the inter-related aspects of governance.
