a few kind words

As the CEO of a publicly funded multi million-pound organisation that is continually held to the highest levels of scrutiny, I require an external audit function that is second to none. gbac has ensured that both my board and I not only have confidence in relation to our continued compliance, but also that we have an associate that has supported our sustained development over a number of years. The intrinsic value that is the advice and support offered cannot be underestimated and is an example of why gbac are much more than merely our external auditors.
