A rare opportunity to hear from Andy Fastow, the criminally indicted and jailed former CFO of Enron, a company that collapsed in a wave of accounting scandals changing the accounting industry forever. Our Undergraduate Accounting Society is sponsoring the self-proclaimed “Chief Loophole Officer,” who will speak on campus on February 22 @ 7:00 pm at the Lotte Lehmann Concert Hall. Andy will talk about a variety of things, including how following “rules” versus “principles” can lead to frauds like Enron. BTW, I’ve been told his talk is “life changing,” in that you will never look at decisions the same way (and is particularly important for young CPAs to hear).
We will also have a Meet & Greet prior to the presentation.
Here is a summary of the details:
- Thursday, February 22 @ 7:00 pm; Meet & Greet at 6:00 pm
- Lotte Lehmann Concert Hall, UCSB Campus
- The UAS is sponsoring the event as a fundraiser for UCSB’s new Future Business Leaders of America chapter
- Tickets: Students $5; Others $10 + Eventbrite fee
- Ticket site link: bit.ly/UASFastow (which includes more info)
Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
