Webinar: Ethics: How I Went from CPA and Hospital Controller to Prisoner

WC1337  |  Partner Virtual Events  |  Intermediate  |  Scheduled


Steve Brodzin was Controller for a not-for-profit children's hospital. He supervised a small staff, was trusted by management and the Board of Directors, and relied on that trust and a background in public accounting to take more than $800,000. Today Steve shares his experience to help employers to be more vigilant in protecting assets and to discourage employees from losing everything and possibly going to prison.
