Experts in corporate fraud will share their unique perspectives and experience as part of the Financial Statement Fraud Seminar Series presented by the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business. The seminars, which are free and open to the public, will be held virtually beginning March 17 (Wednesday).
The series features former HealthSouth CFO turned whistleblower Weston Smith, who alerted federal investigators in 2003 to the massive accounting fraud perpetrated at health care giant. A frequent speaker on ethics and integrity in business, Smith will discuss the culture of the company that supported the fraud, the mechanics of how the unethical accounting was put into place and how detection was avoided.
Other speakers include forensic accountants, a fraud investigator, a federal prosecutor and an FBI agent — all of whom will present their unique experience in uncovering fraud. Attendees must register via this link by March 15 (Monday). All sessions begin at 8:30 a.m. EST. The full schedule is as follows:
