On September 19, 2012, Tom Hughes returned to campus to speak to Prof. Kristi Brown’s Internal Controls class.  Tom has been a frequent speaker on campus over the years,  and his presentations describing his personal journey following conviction for a series of frauds has had a real impact on our students (Tom’s previous presentation on his experiences was in November, 2011 and can be see by going to the “In the Classroom” posting on Feb. 26, 2012).  Tom has now developed a more accounting-oriented presentation, which he first delivered to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners at their annual conference in Austin, TX, and to the Vermont Society of Certified Public Accountants.  In 2011, Tom was appointed by then-Vermont Auditor General Tom Salmon to serve on a special anti-fraud advisory panel.  His presentation to Prof. Brown’s class addressed some of the steps small business owners should be taking to reduce the risk of internal fraud.   A recording of the presentation can be seen at:  https://tegr.it/y/ocj8
