OMAHA – An international accounting expert with Omaha ties and a convicted fraudster will be guest speakers at the 2014 University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Accounting Speakers Series event, which will be held on Friday, Sept. 26.
The speaker series, which is now in its third year and hosted by the UNO Department of Accounting, invites members of the public, as well as the UNO community, to hear from impactful accounting industry leaders and network with UNO students and faculty.
This year, Larry Bradley, a UNO alumnus who also serves as the Global Head of Audit for KPMG, will serve as Keynote Speaker while Helen Sharkey, an accountant who worked with Dynergy during a securities fraud scandal and served jail time as a result, will discuss ethics and what she has learned first hand about the role it plays in the business world.
The event will begin with a breakfast from 7:30 am. to 8:30 a.m. and will be followed by the two speakers’ remarks. Both events will take place at Mammel Hall, 6708 Pine St., home to the UNO College of Business Administration.
Tickets for the event are $100 for those registering through Friday, Sept. 12, and $120 for those registering afterwards. Students are able to attend the presentations for free. Attendees may earn four continuing education credits, including two ethics credits, based on approval by the Nebraska Board of Public Accountancy.
