Whether Tom speaks from a podium, freely walks around an open stage, meets with small groups, or conducting seminars he engages his audiences with proven methods and techniques they can use in their everyday lives to thwart the efforts of would-be fraudsters and help spot the loose threads of fraud before they can do damage to the organization.
