Before the show starts there’s a lot of work to do, but apparently it isn’t in the control room. Where’d everybody go?

If the audio for this course sounds better than normal its because Charlie La Costa is an audio ninja.

Again, if you missed the live course, you can catch a live webcast replay! There are lots of replay dates before year end, so if you’re trying to get all of your CPE by year end, you’re in luck.

Behind The Scenes ACPEN Signature: Business Fraud

Our September Signature Course, Business Fraud Update: Use of Technology in Fraud Investigations, was an action-packed webcast filled with stories of lies, deceptions, and FRAUD! It also featured our largest panel for a Signature Course this year, with NINE accounting and technology experts. This gives you, the viewer, many different perspectives on a fraud investigation, but it also presented many production challenges for our production crew. So, we invite you to take a look at the “Behind The Scenes” fun. And–if you missed it, be sure to check out the on-screen action at the next live webcast replay.

It was a hectic day for sure, but it was totally worth it! This is one of the most dynamic and engaging CPE opportunities out there. You won’t be disappointed!

ACPEN Signature: Behind the Scenes

A lot of work goes into producing one of our ACPEN Signature Courses, and the first course of the year brings with it some extra challenges. But with those challenges there’s a lot of fun to be had as well.

Day Before Signature Course

Before the speakers show up there is a lot of work to be done to ready our studio for the course. The materials are organized for the speakers and the studio is made ready for the production.

The day before a production we host a pre-production meeting with speakers for any last minute updates.

Signature Day!

First things first, breakfast!

Welcome Presenters!

And it’s LUNCH TIME!

Side note: we enjoyed Tacos 4 Life! For every meal you buy they feed a hungry child. We helped feed 30 kiddos in need with our delicious spread.

Back to the grindstone

After a long day, we release our speakers back into the wild.

A lot of work goes into making Signature days a success, but it always pays off. Here are just a few of the comments from our viewers:

“Enjoyed the webinar.”

“Content was very good. Panel discussions were very helpful and they had a tendency to break up the monotony of a verbal presentation. Clint’s examples were very helpful. Nice job overall. Thanks.”

“Very informative”

“Excellent presentation. Did know what to expect, very satisfied. Learned a lot today!”

If you attended today’s course, thank you and drop us a comment! If you missed it, don’t worry, you can catch a live replay. You won’t be disappointed!
