The Mind of an Embezzler:  Unrelenting Greed

Embezzlement is alive and well in our society. During the lifespan of a 30 year practice, there will be at least one embezzler, one thief on the payroll.

And, it is always someone the doctor trusts.

How then, can you help protect the practice?

Protecting a practice becomes easier once you understand the mind of the embezzler.

This is truly a unique presentation. There are seven logical steps involved in an employee stealing from a practice. Attendees are fully engaged listening to the audio letters from Leona, the Queen of Embezzlement, as she writes to Avarice, her novice, what it takes to embezzle.

Susan unveils the one area that is not addressed in typical embezzlement courses – their mind. Even armed with a degree in psychology, it is, quite frankly, a harrowing place to go. The seven informative letters are culled from past cases, interviews from doctors, spouses, staff and even the embezzlers themselves. The words are from the embezzler’s viewpoint. You will hear their voice, frightening in some cases as it is.

Come learn the following key issues:

  • The mind of an embezzler
  • The actions of an embezzler
  • The behavior of an embezzler
