KWC was established
in 2006 to provide a range of personal professional services, drawing
on Keith Wade’s extensive experience of working directly with clients
in over 40 countries around the world - advising them on establishing
or reinvigorating their internal audit functions, conducting appraisals
of their effectiveness, helping to introduce control self-assessment,
identifying training needs and the best way to meet them - and numerous
Keith is well-known as the founder of CATS International, a company founded
in 1986 that has since acquired an international reputation as a leader
in internal audit training and consultancy. Now a key division of Kingdom
Management Limited (KML), CATS goes from strength to strength, with Keith
serving as its Training and Development Director, and naturally the organisations
work closely, with projects being referred between the two.
KWC specialises in providing personalised advisory services to both private
and public sector organisations, ranging from large international corporations
to small municipalities, from major banks to local hospitals. We work
with individuals, companies, governments, aid agencies, and a wide variety
of other bodies. We advise, guide and assist internal audit and risk management
units, Ministries of Finance, State Audit functions, regulators and many
others in helping them to develop competence and confidence, advance standards
and take a proactive, progressive and professional approach to their work.
KWC also embraces the work done by Keith with academic institutions, NGOs,
other consultancies, and professional bodies, such as the Institute of
Internal Auditors, CIPFA, IRM and AIRMIC.
Our work is practical,
participative, personal and professional. Each project is conducted or
supervised by Keith Wade. We seek to find out as much about our clients
as we can, and tailor our services accordingly. Although our guidance
is based on so-called ”international best practice” we recognise
the practicalities and constraints of life, understand that the world
is not homogeneous, and appreciate the significance and impact of local
cultures, environments and needs.
Our consultancy advice is totally unbiased. We are tied to no other agency,
supplier or body apart from our links with CATS. We comment objectively
and with authority on professional statements, regulatory demands, control
and risk management models, and other developments, and assess their significance
and relevance. We aim to win your trust, confidence and respect through
the impartiality of our advice and the quality and usefulness of our work.
Although our reputation is our biggest asset, we do not take it for granted.
