Speaking Topic Examples
The Thief in your Company
Tiffany Couch has seen theft in many forms, but what sticks with her is the emotional devastation that these crimes leave in their wake. The Thief in Your Company helps all organizations learn how to protect against fraud schemes, recognize the typical fraudsters, take specific steps if fraud is discovered and understand the emotional impacts of fraud.
The Thief in your Nonprofit
Nonprofit organizations are especially prone to embezzlement schemes at the hands of their employees. During this session attendees will learn the reasons why these organizations experience fraud, the red flags of typical schemes, questions board members should be asking, and an easy action plan for mitigating risk and implementing appropriate oversight and internal controls in your organization.
Interviewing skills for Auditors
Your professional standards require you to consider the risk of fraud in an organization and to rely on interviews of management and staff to satisfy this requirement. We'll talk about the fact that just 4 percent of all frauds are discovered by external auditors, examine the reasons why those statistics are so low, and incorporate ways to bring more success to the informational interviews you conduct as an auditor.
Understanding Financial Reports
As an entrepreneur you are great at what you do, delivering your products or services, connecting with your customers, and building a business. But below all of that success, you worry that you don't understand your financials. You may ask yourself some of the following: "Why is it that my income statement shows I'm making money, but I have no cash in the bank?" "What is a balance sheet and why is it important to my business?" "Why doesn't my accountant help me understand these numbers?" Your financials shouldn't scare you; they should empower you. Let Tiffany show you how.
The Thief in your Entourage
You've found success. You've also found sponsors, managers, and others presenting you with opportunities and asking you to write more checks. Between your professional obligations, your social media presence, and your life - you believe you've found just the right person to handle your money. Perhaps you trust them implicitly. Understand that the most trusted and well-liked person could be stealing from you.
Additional Topics
Tiffany can tailor her topic to fit your particular industry or audience. With her engaging style and practical tools, you and your audience will not be disappointed. Some additional topics might include corporate internal audit or investigator training, elder abuse, building a culture of honesty and fraud in specific industries.

ACFE-GTA September Workshop
"I have tried cases in state and federal court for 20 years. I hired Tiffany Couch and Acuity Forensics to assist on a case of suspected fraud by a client's employee. Tiffany was responsive, intelligent and worked well with my office and the client's employees. She held up well under adverse questioning and showed a command of the facts, accounting analysis and legal theories that made her an excellent expert witness. I would not hesitate to hire Ms. Couch and Acuity Forensics in another case and would recommend them to any attorney or business who needs a fraud examiner."

"I read your report yesterday and it is very impressive. I'm sure you get that all the time. From an investigative standpoint, not only can it provide evidence of... theft/criminal mistreatment, it also tells the investigator leads to follow and how to plan a suspect interview. In cases where vulnerable people are exploited, oftentimes the victim is unable to tell us what happened so making a case can be very difficult.

Thank you so much for your help on this case. The victim is deceased and your assistance is proving critical in finding out what happened to her money and who is responsible."
