He is recognised as an accomplished and charismatic facilitator, trainer and lecturer and is in continual demand to speak at the most prestigious events on risk management, Internal Audit and fraud.

Why You Should Attend Recent surveys have revealed that many organisations do not have a formalised approach to fraud prevention, detection or investigation. Furthermore most survey respondents stated that their organisations were not taking the risk of fraud seriously enough. Staff invariably did not receive any fraud awareness training.

Many organisations rely on internal controls to prevent and detect fraud. This is unwise. The fraudster invariably knows your controls well and how to bypass them

Furthermore, in today’s competitive environment internal controls have often been compromised by frequent changes of management , the removal of management layers and employee empowerment

Complacency, poorly applied procedures and the fast pace of change are the fraudster’s main allies

Add to this the ever-increasing reliance on technology, and it is no great surprise that fraud is escalating both in frequency and magnitude – in all industry sectors and all economies

During the current economic difficulties across the world, fraud poses an even greater threat

One recent survey revealed that 84% of the worst frauds were committed by employees, nearly half of whom were managers with more than five years’ service
