    embezzlement: for Your eyes (and ears) only

    Presented by: Susan Gunn

    Course Description: Do you have the gut feeling that all is not safe and secure in your practice? Is your hard-earned money walking out the door – without you? You’re a smart person, but can you be deceived?

    This unique course explores practice vulnerabilities that may encourage dishonesty in the people you trust most. In an interactive environment, attendees study hair- raising (and eye-opening) facts revealed in a nationwide embezzlement survey, gaining insight into your own potential problem areas.

    Through this hands-on, lab-type “round table” experience, participants will evaluate embezzlement case studies to see practice flaws that enable embezzlement. This half-day course with limited attendance received rave reviews at the 2007 Texas Meeting.

    Learn easy ways to weave accountability “threads” throughout your systems and procedures, and how to implement practical safeguards to avoid becoming a victim of financial dishonesty or deceit. One recent attendee implemented suggested safeguards only to discover he had been embezzled.

    Course Objectives Upon completion of this course, participants will understand:

    • Systems and procedures to protect against embezzlement • The cost of embezzlement • Who has control of the practice
