Fraud Conference Keynotes Take On Fraud


You can’t have a global fraud conference without top-notch keynote speakers, and we don’t mean to brag, but this year’s lineup is incredible. If you attend, you’ll hear stories from a Panama Papers recipient, a stalwart opponent of state-sponsored corruption in Russia and the director of the U.K.’s Serious Fraud Office. The 30th Annual ACFE Global Fraud Conference will bring you experts from all over the world so you can hear their stories, learn practical skills and return to the office with strategies to help you stand up against fraud and stand out from your peers.

But don’t take our word for it. This year’s speakers have shown up in some of the biggest, most world-renowned news outlets. Here are some recent highlights.


Lisa Osofsky
This story from BBC News details how two traders were jailed after being convicted of conspiring to rig the Euribor global interest rate. As director of the U.K. Serious Fraud Office, Lisa Osofsky said, “We are committed to tracking down and bringing to justice those who defraud others and abuse the system.” 

Bill Browder
Hermitage Capital Management CEO Bill Browder was quoted in the Wall Street Journal last week. He has spent nearly a decade trying to expose Russian corruption. With the recent money laundering trouble in Europe, in particular with Swedbank, Browder has called for a “full housecleaning” of those who had oversight of anti-money laundering compliance at the Swedish bank. His interest in the matter stems from his investigation into the bank’s financial ties to the death of Sergei Magnitsky, Browder’s former associate who died while in Russian custody.  

Bastian Obermayer
The Street recently wrote an in-depth piece about how the Panama Papers have changed the world (and may continue to change the world). Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bastian Obermayer was the recipient of the leaked documents, and he helped usher the information into the world in a way that ensured the story was told right.

Tyler Shultz
If you’ve had a chance to watch HBO’s documentary “The Inventor,” you may be familiar with the name Tyler Shultz. Not only will he be receiving the Sentinel Award this year, but he’s also one of the whistleblowers responsible for the downfall of Theranos. Now, according to a recent story from Business Insider, he and a fellow whistleblower are starting an organization called Ethics in Entrepreneurship, which aims to teach young entrepreneurs how to avoid the same mistakes Elizabeth Holmes made.
