Meet the Speaker:

Art Berkowitz, C.P.A. is a resource for continuing professional education. He develops webcasts and self-study courses for accountants and financial professionals. He also conducts customized accounting, ethics, and fraud seminars and workshops across the nation for CPA firms, associations, and corporations.
Art is also a noted author. He has written for numerous professional publications, including a weekly online column for The Wall Street Journaland a book on the Enron debacle. Art’s book on Enron provides a perspective on the scandal that is missing in the day-to-day news accounts. It describes the underlying ethical issues that became pervasive in the auditing, financial reporting, and investment analysis fields and the strengths and weaknesses of the proposed solutions.
Prior to opening his own practice in 1987, Art was a partner in a 23-member local accounting firm in Miami, Florida. He had previously spent six years with Coopers & Lybrand and Laventhol & Horwath.
Much of his interest in ethics stem from the three years Art served as a public member of the State Bar Grievance Committee and the four years he worked for Laventhol & Horwath, the largest CPA firm ever to file for bankruptcy protection due to unethical behavior.
