Presentation:

Forensic accounting applies accounting to the investigation and establishment of evidence in a court of law. This intersection of the legal system with accounting adds layers of complexity in dealing with certain circumstances. Is it necessary to call in a forensic accountant or should you deal with the situation yourself? How would you handle potential evidence? Your forensic accountant is not your attorney so do you need to be wary of your conversations with him or her. There is attorney client privilege but what about accountant client privilege? What are the legal traps that you may encounter when dealing with a situation that could result in litigation. Join us for a discussion of what you should expect from your forensic accountant.

Presentation:

Organizational Culture is widely accepted as the dominant values, assumptions, and behaviors existent within an organization. The Organizational Culture also influences the way people interact, their acceptance or resistance to change, and ultimately the context within which knowledge is acquired, created, or transferred.
Cash Management encompasses all activities broadly related to planning, organizing, controlling, collecting, handling, and growing financial resources. Cash management is also greatly influenced by the Organizational Culture. Interestingly however, the relationship between the two (organizational culture and cash management) is often overlooked. In fact, significant losses are sustained annually by companies that fail to acknowledge and address the interrelationship between Organizational Culture and Cash.

  • Define and describe Organizational Culture
  • Explore Organizational Culture in relation to human behavior and misbehavior.
  • Revisit relevant statistics concerning the cost of employee misbehavior and disengagement.
  • Clarify and connect the concepts known as Organizational Behavior, Design, Effectiveness, and Development.
  • Propose strategies that enhance employee engagement..
