Tom Offers Discounts to Schools and Universities
In the wake of Enron and WorldCom Tom wanted to help future auditors and business leaders learn more about detecting and deterring fraud. He reached out to DePaul University in Chicago with the idea: he and two of his partners would develop and teach a forensic accounting course. It would be the first of its kind. In 2002 no such courses were offered in the Chicagoland area. The idea was so unique a Chicago Tribune reporter visited the first class and wrote an in-depth, front page article about it. Shortly after that publication an editor from John Wiley & Sons contracted with Tom to author the award-winning book A Guide to Forensic Accounting Investigation, now in its second edition.
When Tom visits a campus, the inviting professor often takes advantage of Tom’s offer to meet with students and other faculty. In Q&A sessions Tom is an open book freely discussing not only his many investigations but offering his insights into how they can best prepare to become, not just great auditors, but outstanding business professionals in an ever-changing and competitive world.
When you see Tom’s intense passion in front of a classroom, or on stage in front of hundreds of students, it comes as no surprise that Tom discounts his speaking fees to schools. In addition, Tom offers to schools add-on features at no additional cost.
During Tom’s visit to your campus he is happy to participate in other opportunities to interact with students and faculty.
Here are some of those activities:
- Engage one-on-one with students and faculty in smaller settings
- Address student organizations such as BAP and ACFE Chapters
- Moderate interactive seminars and forums
- Remain a resource for students and faculty to reach out to after he leaves campus
Tom does this at no additional cost
