Engaging with different audiences

Through a programme of large events and small gatherings, in person and online, PwC opened up a discussion with a range of organisations and individuals who have an interest in making the audit fit for the future. From business leaders to investors, members of audit committees to academics, we heard many different views and perspectives on how the audit could evolve.

Roundtables across the country

We had conversations with more than 150 investors, audit committee members, CEOs, CFOs and academics at our events in Belfast, Birmingham, Edinburgh, London and Manchester.

Survey of UK businesses and investors

We heard from 175 investors (who all invest in UK businesses) and 198 business leaders through our survey conducted in spring 2019.

Conversations with business leaders and investors  

We met individually with senior business leaders, investors and others who are interested in the audit to capture their ideas. These in-depth discussions complemented what we heard in the roundtables and in the survey.

“Audit has societal purpose and is no longer just about shareholders, but broader stakeholders.”

We also created an online forum to ensure that as many people as possible could share their views with us.
