In conjunction with the Central Ohio Chapter of the Institute of Internal Auditors, we are pleased to bring you Liseli Pennings from the ACFE to share with us her insight on fraud reports.  Fraud cases can be won or lost on the strength of the written report. This session will cover how to ensure your report speaks to those who will be reading it, from management to law enforcement to a jury.  You will also learn the most common ways a report can lead to legal liability for the examination team and how you can avoid them when compiling your case and writing your report. Additionally, as expert witness engagements differ from general fraud reports, you will explore the different types of expert witness reports, what to include in these documents, and best practices for writing reports when you’re engaged as an expert in a case. Finally, general writing techniques will be reviewed to improve your overall report writing.
