2012 Forensic Accounting Conference
The 2012 Forensic Accounting Conference, held on Thursday 24th May 2012 at the Intercontinental Wellington was a great success with 60 attendees and some excellent presentations by some well respected speakers.
Lyn Provost kicked off the day with a presentation on Fraud in the Public Sector which was then contrasted perfectly with Stephen Bell’s (KPMG) presentation on Fraud in the Private Sector. Unfortunately, due to some minor surgery, Nick Paterson was unable to join us on the day to speak as scheduled and Stephen Bell and Geoff Owen did an excellent job of stepping up for an impromptu presentation in Nick’s allocated time slot.
After a delicious lunch attendees were able to choose between break-out sessions, topics on offer were ‘Trust Busting’ (Tony Molloy, Shortland Chambers), ‘The Work of Transparency International in the global fight against bribery & corruption (Fiona Treggoning, TINZ), ‘Computer Forensics’ (Campbell McKenzie, PWC) and ‘Bribery & Corruption’ (Lorinda Kelly, Deloitte).
Geoff Owen (PWC) and Belinda Moffat (FMA) held the final two slots of the day and did a great job of keeping attendees awake and attentive in the dreaded ‘afternoon slump’ sessions.
A prize draw was held, for all attendees who had registered prior to the early bird cut off date, this was drawn by Charlene Peters, Central Region Manager and the lucky recipient of an Air New Zealand mystery break for two was Philip O’Brien. Congratulations to Philip!
Special mention must be made to our hostess with the mostess, MC extraordinaire - Jane Mitson who was the glue which held the day together and made sure everything ran smoothly. Thank you Jane for all your hard work. NZICA would also like to thank the presenters which gave their time and shared their experiences and expertise with our appreciative audience
