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.
