The Many Faces of Fraud: Why Good People Make Dumb Choices

What motivates good people to make dumb choices? Are fraudsters born that way or just fall into unethical and fraudulent behavior? These and more questions will be answered in this informative and entertaining course. Filled with practical examples you’ll discover the patterns behind how choices are made. In order to prevent fraud, you’ll discover the three components of fraud – PIT. This course pulls back the curtain on fraudulent behavior and how to prevent it.

Every choice has a consequence. In 1987, Chuck Gallagher made some bad choices at the height of his career and went from wearing a business suit to an orange jump suit some years later. So… you might be asking yourself, Why would I want a former convicted felon to speak to my organization about ethics and integrity? Why? Because Chuck has experienced first hand how easy it is to move from ethical to unethical. Rather than taking the usual theoretical approach to fraud and fraud prevention—which, frankly, can put an audience to sleep—Chuck captures attention by talking about his own journey from a human perspective, then combining it with a practical application. His presentations are sometimes humorous, often thought-provoking and always impactful—but never “textbook.”
