The movie was excellent and very pertinent to auditing. The [Helios] staff members were terrific to deal with and made the entire process of renting the movie and obtaining CPE credits for our staff very easy. Thank you!
This film(ATQH) provided an excellent learning opportunity for our faculty and staff as well as the local community (one very similar in size to Dixon)
All the Queen's Horses is a fascinating account about the ability of a small-town official to steal $53 million. But, what is most fascinating is Kelly Richmond Pope's focus on all of the people who should have noticed but didn't, the mayor, the city council, and most importantly, the public auditors. Pope provides a call to action to all those with oversight to do a better job, to take responsibility, and to provide the protection that citizens are entitled to have. Anyone who plans to accept a financial oversight role should watch this film!
