The Power of Connections
Tuesday, April 8 • 8:45–10:15 a.m.
Bob Gray, memory expert and motivational speaker

We live in a world where technology changes at an incredible rate. Yet oddly, we almost never make the effort to learn about the most sophisticated and adaptable piece of technology ever given to us… our brain. In his interactive keynote presentation, Bob will teach the hilarious and practical "Chain" system—an invaluable tool for memorizing speeches, presentations, lists, complex equations and more! He will reveal the power of connections and methods for empowering individuals in their personal and professional lives through untapped memory potential.

In Bob's keynote, you'll learn new memory strategies to:

  • increase confidence
  • improve awareness and mental organization
  • deliver more effective leadership, innovation and planning

If you use just 20% of the systems taught and apply them only 30% of the time, you will see dramatic results.

Register for Dr. Nigrini's
pre-conference workshop

Using Forensic Analytics to Detect P-Card Fraud, Errors, Waste and Abuse

separate fee required

 

Benford's Law: The Facts, the Fun
and the Future

Wednesday, April 9 • 8:45–10:15 a.m.
Mark Nigrini, Ph.D., professor, West Virginia University and author of Forensic Analytics: Methods and Techniques for Forensic Accounting Investigations and Benford’s Law: Applications for Forensic Accounting, Auditing, and Fraud Detection

Join us Wednesday morning for Dr. Mark Nigrini's interesting, entertaining and informative discussion. He was the first to propose that auditors could use Benford's Law to detect fraud and errors in client data. Learn how it can be used to uncover odd number patterns in many real-life data sets. More like magic than a math lesson, his rapid delivery style will sink Benford's Law in your own mind. You will never look at numbers, payments or transactions the same way again!

Dr. Nigrini will show examples from high-profile fraud cases like Madoff, Enron and Harriette Walters, and demonstrate the link between Benford's Law and The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown.  

Get ready to:

  • acquire insights useful for your on-the-job auditing and monitoring tasks
  • discover what unusual number patterns might reveal
  • be inspired to dig deeper into data and identify what's fake and what's real

"What he provided was a light at the end of the tunnel... a way of defining and identifying waste and abuse."
