The speaker was full of knowledge. Really appreciated his giving nature in allowing us access to his teaching materials to use in our businesses/organizations. This really showed how much he believes in getting the message out about the fraud. He was very upbeat and easy to listen to.


This was a very good session. In-depth material, very appropriate for our business environments of today. I would attend another class taught by Dennis Dycus Thank you.


Mr. Dennis is a terrific presenter. He is obviously very knowledgeable and spoke as if he was having a conversation - which is the most effective presentation skill. His PowerPoint slides were very well done - brief bullet points - and he didn't read them! I hope he holds other webinars in the future.


The presenter was both super knowledgeable & super prepared with a most comprehensive outline of steps we as professionals can do to combat fraud. thank you for such an informative webinar.


Class was effective.


Great instructor
