    The Houston ACFE is happy to partner with Audimation Services to host our first in person luncheon in a while!!

    Speaker:  Galina Seliounina Guidry, CFE

    Title:  "What Makes A Successful Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption Audit?"

    Description:  "Your company’s Audit Plan may entail an Anti-Corruption Audit (“ABC”) – but what does it mean? Auditors are routinely asked to conduct an ABC review; whether it is due to a high-risk location or being involved with a high-risk vendor. A good quality ABC review may mean the difference between a bribery being caught early, instead of having the Department of Justice, or the Securities and Exchange Commission knocking on your company’s door. In this session, we will explore steps auditors can utilize to perform audits of internal business units, third parties and/or business partners."

    Bio:  Galina Seliounina Guidry is the President of ICAF Consulting and has over 10 years of practical experience performing operational assessments for various private and public companies. Her portfolio of clients encompasses a vast array of industry, sectors, and organizations – (both foreign and domestic). Galina offers subject matter expertise for contract & regulatory compliance, process efficiency, fraud education, and fraud prevention. Galina is an active member in her social and home communities; she enjoys mentoring and teaching students (via real cases & scenarios) how to think outside the box, best manage time, and optimize results.  She worked previously at Transocean and at Landry’s, Inc.  She serves as a guest lecturer at the University of Houston (Texas) and Loyola Marymount University (California). Galina has penned articles for national publications. 

    Galina, a graduate of the University of Houston, is an Olympic trained and former professional tennis star from Belarus. Her talent was recruited by The University of Houston Athletics: It was during those collegiate years, the U of H Women’s Tennis Team won the NCAA’s Conference USA. (A feat that had not been done prior, nor since)!
