Keynote Speaker: Harry Markopolos, Whistleblower in the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme.
It took Harry Markopolos only five minutes to figure out that Bernie Madoff was a fraud. But it took him almost ten years of repeated red flag waving and covert communication to the SEC to get the world to see it. Chartered Financial Analyst, Certified Fraud Examiner and author of New York Times bestseller No One Would Listen, Harry Markopolos will be speaking at the Joint IIA/ACFE Fraud Conference on Friday, March 14.
The IIA and ACFE have joined together to bring a conference to the South Florida community which will not be forgotten. Whether you need practical fraud-related guidance, tools & techniques, 8 CPEs, or simply would like to hear the story of the largest investor fraud in history, this conference should be on your list of must-attend events.
Get Harry’s insights on fraud, prevention and how a healthy professional skepticism can help protect enterprises everywhere. His recently released book, No One Would Listen, details the ten-year quest Markopolos and his team undertook to prevent the biggest financial disaster of the 21st century. Publisher’s Weekly has called it “an astonishing true-life whodunit set amidst the personalities, plots, and international intrigue of Wall Street.” Since the Madoff scandal broke, Markopolos has dedicated himself to becoming the world's most visible and shrewd whistleblower on fraud and conflicts of interest in financial markets. No One Would Listen has already become a New York Times bestseller, and Markopolos has shared his insights on such prominent media outlets as The Today Show, 60 Minutes, CNN and The Daily Show, as well as in major print publications including The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. Most recently, he starred in the feature documentary Chasing Madoff.
