Audit Wales extend congratulations to Isobel Everett for the award of an MBE in the recent Queen’s Honours List.
Isobel was the first Chair of the Board for Wales Audit Office, serving from 2013 – 2020.
Under her leadership and drive, the organisation rebuilt its credibility and stakeholder confidence, becoming a high performing, value for money public service.
Importantly, Isobel built the trust and confidence of the Welsh Parliament’s Finance Committee, newly responsible for parliamentary oversight of the Wales Audit Office.
During her time Chairing the Board, Isobel was a driving force working with the Auditor General for Wales to embed a change in the leadership culture of the organisation. As a result, the Wales Audit Office became recognised as being more impactful in delivering scrutiny of the effectiveness of public spending by the Welsh Government and other public services and improved the culture in the organisation growing its reputation as a great place to work.
Working with Isobel was an enormous privilege.
Her passion for public services and her vast experience brought great benefit to Audit Wales. Isobel’s ability to focus on the important aspects of our work, her ability to engage with stakeholders and her attention on our culture gave Audit Wales direction at a critical period in our development.
To see that Isobel has been recognised for this and her many achievements across her career is a wonderful testimony.
During my time as Chair of the Board at Audit Wales I was delighted to support the organisation and build its reputation.
I was particularly proud to see the impact of the work of Audit Wales and the power of this to shape improvement in public services. The commitment of the Board and all the staff was so impressive and essential in making change possible.
Whist I gave my best to support Audit Wales, I also learnt a great deal during my time as Chair. This helped me grow as a person and as a Non-Executive Director.
I will continue to watch with pride and interest as Audit Wales continues its journey and strengthen its impact at this very challenging time for public services.
