TQCSI Area Manager Western Australia Darren Chapman


How long have you been an auditor?

"I have been auditing since 2004. I started as a consultant in Melbourne conducting 1st and 2nd party audits for clients. I then joined a certification body (DNV) and conducted 3rd party audits and training domestically and internationally. In 2010 I started a family and needed to travel less so I moved back into industry (mining and Ports), again conducting 1st and 2nd party audits. At the end of 2019 I established a consultancy and recommenced 3rd party audits."


What is your favourite movie or book?

"My favorite investment book is the Barefoot Investor. My favorite fiction novel is Different Seasons by Stephen King. I recently finished The Naked CEO by Alex Malley which was also an entertaining read. "


What do you like most about being an auditor?

"I enjoy working with clients and seeing their confidence build. This comes from incremental improvements in operational performance and workplace culture as they implement and continually improve their management systems. "


What is your favourite place?

"Anywhere near the coast. Whilst originally from Melbourne my family now call South West WA home and it's pretty special."
