Description

We have all made what we thought were ‘small’ decisions that had a HUGE result. Gary Zeune, CPA will ask Gallagher how his ‘immaterial’ choices sent him to prison. This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions during the event.

Highlights

Here are a few things you will learn from Gary and Chuck:

  • Did Chuck's partners miss any red flags that he was stealing
  • How 99% of CPAs rationalize illegal behavior
  • Is your software installed ethically
  • How “If I only knew now then what I know now” applies to you
  • The risk of tax fraud from non-financial information
  • How some socially acceptable behavior can be unethical for CPAs
  • How a county water department was inadvertently unethical 
  • VW shows how easy it is to circumvent control systems
  • How 7 city hall employees didn’t use their rational brain
  • Rationalizing is like wet cement
  • Gallagher paid the money back, so was it unethical
  • How the boss’s behavior infects some other employees
  • How Chuck used trust to continue his unethical behavior
  • The 3 ‘legs’ of your ethics stool
  • How client controls at Chuck’s firm would have stopped him
  • Chuck was an ERISA specialist. How that affected his sentence.
