IIANZ Lunchtime Session (1315 – 14.00)
“The Marshmallow Effect”
Much has been written by internal auditors and fraud examiners on ways to prevent and detect fraud. Most focus on structured methodologies and benchmarking to ensure that organisations do as much as they can, within cost parameters, to reduce the risk of fraud occurring. There are however many “soft” issues to fraud that are easily overlooked. In the workshop session Barry will draw on his experience from investigating fraud in New Zealand – looking at the issue from the perspective of the fraudster rather than the auditor. This will be an interactive session.

He has provided expert evidence in Court and to international arbitrations on numerous occasions, and has led many high profile complex fraud and asset recovery investigations in New Zealand.
