APB Presents: Frank Casey

In this session, Casey will share the inside story of how he and his colleagues exposed the Ponzi scheme and how their efforts to draw regulatory attention to the matter went unanswered. He will examine why due diligence by regulators and hedge funds failed, suggest what needs to be done to prevent the situation from repeating itself, and discuss lessons we can all learn from the Madoff scandal.

"He was awesome!! Standing room only!! Everyone who either attended his keynote or met him has had nothing but rave reviews about what a great speaker he is and what a fun, nice guy he is. Students said we were so lucky to have him visit our class!"
"A very engaging speaker, amazing the minute details he recalled and shared with us. I sensed that the entire room was locked on his every word, it was almost like we were sitting on the edge of our seats waiting to hear what happened next in the case. I believe he could have talked to us for another hour and nobody would have complained. It was simply outstanding."
"Thanks for your interesting, insightful talk the other week about the Madoff fraud. I learned a lot about what really happened and believe that the many students and faculty who came were very pleased as well."
"I've been enjoying myself this morning accepting kudos from my colleagues for bringing in such a great speaker. That has been fun!"
"Just a note to let you know that we—faculty members and students—loved Frank Casey and his presentation at our college. He was terrific."
