According to the ‘Fraud Advisory Panel’ annual report of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales…
Even though so much emphasis is placed on fraud awareness and training, many organisations simply don’t do enough. These organisations are losing an average of 5% of their annual turnovers to fraud yet they have excuses such as ‘no budget’ or ‘no management buy-in’!
If these managers were held accountable for fraud losses it would be a very different story! The lack of accountability is what leads to such weak excuses.
Anyway we commend those proactive organisations that do take the fraud threat seriously and that do regularly train their members and staff.
Here are some photographs of recent training events that we hosted or presented at…
Antonio presenting a breakfast event at the Cape Sun for SAICA (South African Institute of Chartered Accountants) members.
Jonathan presenting to internal auditors at one of the Internal Audit Technician fraud risk management training workshops.
Over sixty finance and audit people attended the 1-day public CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants) fraud prevention workshop held in Gaborone, Botswana.
Mario presenting at the annual SAOUG (South African Oracle Users Group) annual conference held in Kwazulu Natal.
Antonio was a keynote speaker on day 3 of the SAOUG 2010 annual conference held in Cape Town.
Antonio presenting to a full-house at the SAICA Fraud Prevention breakfast in Sandton.
When we do training for membership organisations such as SAICA, the IIA and Cima the events are held in posh hotels but there are times where we have to improvise as there is no projector or no screen at the client’s premises…. This presentation was done at a warehouse where there was no screen and no wall so we used the side of a truck as the screen!
Often we go to mines or construction sites and have to educate blue-collar workers about ethics, their hotline, etc. and we do so literally ‘under the trees’!
If you have a group of employees that need to hear an important ethics/fraud message we will find a way to get it to them!
“If you think training is expensive, how much do you think ignorance is costing your organisation?”
Our primary mission is to help organizations improve their fraud resistance levels and thus become more profitable. Secondary to that is to make a positive contribution in business ethics at our clients and society in general. Read More
