Chamber presents program to help business, non-profit leaders avoid victimization by employee theft

From reports

The Whitley County Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center is pleased to present a program later this month in hopes of helping local business leaders avoid being victimized by employee theft or embezzlement.
The program will be offered Tuesday, January 23, at 9 a.m. and will be held at the Whitley County Purdue Extension Office at 115 South Line Street in Columbia City.
Convicted twice for embezzling more than $1 million each, from his employers between 1992 and 1996, and again between 2001 and 2006, Barry Webne was sentenced to federal prison. Since his release from prison, he travels the country offering training seminars relating to the prevention and detection of Occupational Fraud and employee theft, as well as the implementation and maintenance of internal controls and segregation of duties for small-businesses.
He advises and trains accountants, auditors, management professionals and business owners on the behavioral and psychological traits and tendencies of individuals involved in Occupational Fraud and employee theft schemes. Webne believes no business or organization is safe from the risk of Occupational Fraud and employee theft, from the smallest of churches to the largest of corporations.
To attend the workshop, RSVP to the Chamber by calling (260) 248-8131 or emailing office@whitleychamber.com
