Live Virtual Workshops

Workshop 1*: Seduction of Fraud
Tuesday, 15 June, 2:00-6:00 p.m.**

Seduction is an indirect form of power; when raised to the level of an art, it has toppled governments, won elections, and enslaved great minds. Through recent examples of major frauds and scandals, this workshop will reveal the driving motivators that move persons beyond acceptable behavior to commit unethical and sometimes illegal actions such as fraud. You will discover how to use this knowledge to bridge the gap between fraud prevention, ethics, and human nature.

Workshop 2*: Supporting Organizational Ethics: Internal Audit’s Role in a Changing World
Thursday, 17 June, 2:00–6:00 p.m.**

The foundation for good governance is established through an organization’s strong ethical climate and its ability to set expectations for acceptable behaviors in conducting business internally and with external parties. Through this workshop, you will gain the motivation and understanding needed to enhance your internal audit department’s role in supporting and assessing the ethical climate in your organization.

*Additional fee required for each workshop.
**Available in All Access & All Access (Rebroadcast) registration options.
