WILLIAM A. ALFORD, Certified Fraud Examiner

North Carolina Food Dealers Association (NCFDA)
(Loss Prevention Training for Retailers)
“Your training is focused on the “real world” and our members immediately relate to your stories and examples.  Because your training is practical and motivating, our members actually take the information back to their company and start reducing losses.  The upcoming convention will be the fourth time we have featured you as a speaker and I am sure you will be a “hit” again!”

Texas Grocery & Convenience Association (TGCA)
(Frauds and Schemes Affecting Small Business)
"Thank you for the terrific presentation held last week during our annual Expo and Convention in Dallas, Texas.   TGCA definitely plans to have you back for a future presentation.  Thanks again for making our educational session a success!”

North Carolina Petroleum Marketers Association (NCPMA)

"Thank you for the super presentation at the 2002 Management Institute.  Your contribution helped to make this year’s Institute one of the best ever.”

Shoppers Drug Mart (Canada)
(Point of Sale and Cashier Theft Training)
“I must commend you on a very professional, well-organized and excellent presentation.  I was elated to see that the ‘live’ data that I had collected for you to be used in your training actually uncovered 5 situations during the training that justified immediate investigation.  This was certainly a highlight from my perspective.  The end result is a stronger bottom line.”   “Your enthusiasm and passion…showed a genuine and sincere attitude and approach.  Your presentation engaged the participation of the coordinators, which was very remarkable.  The visual presentation was very well put together.”

North Carolina Association of ABC Boards
(Managing the Media In Crisis Situations)
"I heard many good comments about your informative and entertaining presentation. You do a great job of keeping folks on their toes and attentive during your program, and your use of video segments helped illustrate your points very effectively."
