Networking Events

Every year Barclay Simpson organizes a range of networking events for our clients and candidates, from business lunches, breakfast seminars and informal drinks events. These events are designed to provide platforms for the exchange of ideas and thought leadership and also social engagements in which to provide networking opportunities to our contacts.

Women in IT Audit Breakfast Seminar

In May Barclay Simpson hosted a Women in IT Audit breakfast seminar at the Knickerbocker Hotel in Times Square. Our panelists were some of the best and brightest leaders in IT Audit and included: Catherine Addona, Managing Director at Goldman Sachs; Beth Tate, Managing Director with Citigroup and Nausheem Wassim, Global Head of Investment Banking IT Audit with JP Morgan. We were very grateful for the facilitation of the panel by Barbara Uhland, IT Audit Director with Deutschebank.
Barclay Simpson wanted to provide a platform for this issue given the low rates of representation of women in IT Audit, not just at the leadership level but generally. To illustrate this, only 17% of IT Audit respondents in this year’s market report were women. The panelists discussed a range of topics around the challenges facing women in IT Audit, from navigating and overcoming resistance when in positions of leadership to building careers in an industry that does have representation challenges. The main panel event was followed by an enthusiastic Q&A session with the audience.

Annual Internal Audit & Risk Management Wine-tasting Event

In November Barclay Simpson hosted a wine-tasting networking event which served as both a networking opportunity and a thank you to our candidates and clients. In previous years we have hosted this event at Chelsea Wine Vault and City Winery, and this year brought us to Vin Sur Vingt Nomad, where their sommelier introduced us to a range of white and red French wines from a variety of regions. The event was exceptionally well-attended and served to facilitate some great networking and connections for our contacts.
