Control Yourself! Understanding Internal Control’s Role in Your Business 

Want to know how to reduce the risk of missing or inaccurate inventory, theft, embezzlement, or “funny financials”?  If you answered “yes”, then this workshop is for you.  Effective controls reduce the risk of asset loss and help ensure that business information is complete and accurate, financial statements are reliable, and that your business complies with laws and regulations.  The goal of this workshop is to define and explain the role of internal controls – often overlooked “back office” item.  This workshop provides a basic overview of internal control procedures.  No accounting knowledge required!      

Presented by Shelia Cook

With over 20 years of accounting and auditing experience, Shelia has seen many business operations, inside and out!  The good – segregation of duties.  The bad – hand penciled accounting entries.  The ugly – unsecured blank checks.  She has worked in Fortune 500 companies and small non-profits.  She knows the importance of internal controls, no matter company size. 

Shelia Cook is an entrepreneur and SCORE mentor.  In her past lives she’s been an auditor, trainer, warehouse supervisor, Naval officer, waitress, cashier, tutor, accountant, board member and more!  Though diverse, each role required exceptional communication skills.  For over 30 years, Shelia has practiced, sharpened, and shared her public speaking and presentation skills in numerous settings – professionally and personally.
