Dennis presentations are paced very well. He used the allotted time very efficiently and does not leave topics/concepts hanging at the end of the session. Excellent webinar


It is always good to learn more, anytime I have a seminar I learn something new. Excellent, Informative, Pertinent !


This brought out several ideas that I have never used in my auditing career and now that I am an instructor I am excited to pass this valuable information to my students.


This was one of the best presented webinars I have participated in. Instructor was very informative and practical in the application of the principles. After many, many years of auditing, I could tell that he was practical and right on with every point.


very informative webinar, reminded me not to take the fraud possibility (in my company) lightly


Excellent presentation! This is such an important topic for all businesses. Thank you for presenting ! His recommendations for addressing this issue in your company were spot on and very helpful !
