Please join us for a discussion on fraud in the construction industry.  Our speaker will be Shauna Woody-Coussens from BKD.   Fraud schemes committed by or with the assistance of employees and other insiders can take a serious bite out of an organization’s bottom line, and few companies do enough to stop it.  According to a recent survey, construction companies may lose as much as $259,000 to organization fraud.  Examples from actual fraud investigations will be shared, along with practical tips to reduce fraud in your organization.

Shauna Woody-Coussens is the Managing Director of BKD’s Forensic & Valuation Services practice in the Kansas City, Missouri office.  Shauna has over 25 years of experience investigating fraud and also serves as an expert witness with regard to damages for complex commercial litigations. 

Shauna’s forensic investigative experience includes fraud investigations for internally identified company matters, in response to inquiries by third parties and regulatory bodies, and in litigation in a variety of industries.  Shauna serves as BKD’s subject matter expert with regard to Foreign Corrupt Practices Act investigations and has testified in front of the Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission on such matters.
