Corruption: A Lesson for Tomorrow's Professionals

Guest speaking on May 6, 2014 at Fordham University. "Contemporary Issues in Forensic Accounting." I shared with the students my reflections on international sales, both before and during cooperation, and detailed my thought process as to how I "rationalized bribery." My hope is that by sharing my perspective with tomorrow's business professionals, that they might be more aware of the obvious and not-so-obvious red-flags that might present themselves in their careers. I shared my own experience and the lessons that success built upon a corrupt foundation with corrupt behavior is no success at all.
