A Certified Public Accountant, business author Mike Morley is an entertaining and informative speaker and a recognized authority in the field of finance. Mike offers various training programs, such as IFRS, SOX, and Financial Statement Analysis that focus on providing continuing education opportunities for finance and accounting professionals. Many Fortune 500 companies take advantage of his training programs to bring their staff up to speed so that everyone understands what their responsibilities are.
Mike is the author of several books, including:
“IFRS Simplified” which provides a jump start for accountants and finance executives who want to quickly and easily get up to date on IFRS.
“Sarbanes-Oxley Simplified” which is an easy-to-read explanation of the requirements of the U.S. legislation that makes CEO's & CFO's personally responsible for the accuracy of their company's financial statements.
“Financial Statement Analysis Simplified” which translates the accounting language of financial statements into clear, easy-to-understand terms that anyone who needs to make well-informed financial decisions quickly will appreciate.
Many people feel that the task of documenting their company’s Sarbanes-Oxley controls has become routine and downright boring. However, the SOX documentation process remains one of the best ways for CFOs and CEOs to be comfortable in signing off documents that make them personally and criminally responsible for the accuracy and reliability of their public company's financial statements and the effectiveness of financial controls.
This presentation will show you why SOX remains one of the most important tools for public company executives, accountants, and auditors.
