Moderator:
Zhanetta Onyshchuk, ACCA, Head of АССА in Ukraine, Belarus and Caucasus States
Description:
Business executives now have at their disposal, an array of “legal” weapons that can fundamentally alter the appearance of their company’s financial condition. When is it acceptable to engage in a transaction that technically complies with the rules, but that may be misleading? Can a transaction that technically complies with the rules be considered unethical or illegal? Mr. Fastow will cite examples of such transactions at major companies, he will discuss the rationalizations made by executives to justify their decisions, and he will discuss examples of how these decisions can cause great harm to stakeholders. He will make suggestions of questions that Regulators, Auditors, Fraud Examiners, and Directors might ask in order to ensure that their companies not only follow the rules, but also uphold the principles behind them. Finally, the former Chief Financial Officer of Enron Corp. will discuss his own story, and he will describe how he made such profound mistakes.Maximizing presence involves more than just technical expertise.
