Listen to the recording of Michael Marks, VP of Customer Success at ERP Maestro, as he hosts a one-hour discussion with Kelly Richmond Pope, Ph.D, CPA, forensic accounting expert and the director of the film “All The Queen’s Horses," along with Britta Simms, Global SAP Competency Lead with IBM Security. Together they discuss the beyond-belief, but true, $53 million fraud case exposed in Pope's award-winning documentary, what leads to fraud and how it can be prevented.
"All The Queen's Horses is a fascinating account about the ability of a small town official to steal $53 million...Pope provides a call to action to all those with oversight to do a better job, to take responsibility, and to provide the protection that citizens are entitled to have. Anyone who plans to accept a financial oversight role should watch this film!"
