• “The Skeptical Professional” @GSU’s 4th Annual Fraud and Forensic Accounting Conference

    By • May 15th, 2010 • Category: Pure Content, Where I've Been

    I’m wrapping up three days in Atlanta at the Georgia Southern University Fourth Annual Fraud and Forensic Accounting Conference (Twitter hashtag #GSUFFAConf).  A big thank you to Don Berecz, Director of GSU’s Center for Forensic Studies in Accounting and Business and Laura Snyder of Porter Keadle Moore, LLP, conference sponsors, for your gracious Atlanta hospitality.

    Also, thanks to Terri Thornton, PR for Porter Keadle Moore and Morris Manning & Martin LLP, for her encouragement.

    I enjoyed some great speakers here, among them:

    Scott Hilsen of Alston & Bird who spoke on Avoiding Legal Pitfalls in Fraud Investigations

    Richard Berry on Ponzi Schemes and Feeder Funds

    Justin M. Paperny, Etika, LLC, Lessons from Prison

    Cindy Durtschi, DePaul University, Tallahassee Bean Counters Case Study

    My presentation, The Skeptical Professional, is here.  I had a great audience and lots of good questions.

    Here’s a few of the tweets:
