As the chairwoman of an audit committee, I tend to schedule meetings according to a traditional agenda that works for all of our committee members. Due to a lack of curiosity and objectivity, I fear that our meetings are not up to scratch.


The self-assessment process offered by Governeo generated a rich dialogue with the various stakeholders. We co-built new tools and working methods with the board of directors and the audit committee.


Not only does our audit committee feel that it is working more consistently and efficiently, but the board of directors is assured of a more complete and compliant work.
