Learn to dig into SEC filings and other disclosures – with an eye for fraud – during the Reynolds Center’s free workshop, Detecting Corporate Fraud, 1:30-4:30 p.m. Thursday, March 27, before the SABEW Conference in Phoenix. It will take place at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Arizona State University, 555 N. Central Ave.
This is a golden age of corporate fraud, and journalists have at least one key resource to mine for a clear sense of actual and potential wrongdoing: the voluminous flow of corporate legal and financial public filings. In this free workshop, journalists will learn techniques for digging into U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filings and other disclosures. Instead of spending weeks scouring aimlessly through hundreds of pages of corporate documents, reporters will gain an understanding of what key financial information is available, where to look in the documents to quickly identify trouble spots and how to recognize when crucial details are missing.
Your guides are investigative reporters Theo Francis of The Wall Street Journal and Roddy Boyd of the Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation. SABEW registration is not required to attend this afternoon session.
