Past feedback on the course:

  • This was FUN and very informative.. Thank you Stephen!

  • The course brings ethics to life with all the real life examples that are discussed, from small to large, at work and outside of work, from many different perspectives.

  • The course overall is good as is and is a great ethical course to take for CPAs.

  • Your jokes are the best!  You can quote me on that!

  • I enjoyed the course and it gave me food for thought because it did more than scratch the surface on ethics

  • The examples are eye-opening

  • Great course. I would suggest other controllers to take course from you, 

  • Ethics is a complex subject matter, but this course provides more clarity by using examples and suggestions, all in a framework that gives us the tools we can apply to ethical matters in all aspects of life

  • I find you really easy to understand, not stuffy, not buzz wordy, but just right.

  • Engaging real-life cases and a personable presenter make this a good choice to get your Ethics requirement PD points.

  • I like the inclusion of junior staff issues - they need to be prepared before these issues happen

  • I find subjects, such as ethics to be extremely dry normally, and having ADHD I have a hard time focusing on an unengaging course. I really enjoy your presenting techniques and find that you are able to keep my wondering mind engaged.

  • Other ethics courses were never memorable in the way that yours is

None are scheduled at this time
