Tom Golden is the consummate forensic accountant and professional. He has been an invaluable component of our academic and practice exposure to forensic accounting at the University of Missouri. We launched our forensic accounting initiative at Missouri in 2004 — and Tom has been an integral part of our curricular innovations and coverage in this key area of emphasis in our nationally ranked accounting program since. He helped us with the design of key components of our forensic accounting courses and also facilitated faculty residencies at his practice.
He has also served as a very regular speaker to our students at Missouri, making it a point to visit our classes and discuss his experiences. His forensic accounting presentations are highly informative and are among the best planned and most informative that I have seen in over two decades in accounting academe. He covers cases in detail, supplementing them with theoretical and guiding insights into forensic investigations. He draws from his vast experience to illustrate key concepts and issues in this process.
Last, but not least, he has an interactive presentation style that keeps the audience highly participative in discussions. I would highly recommend Tom to any group interested in learning more about forensic accounting and investigations in general. His superb presentations, combined with his extensive experience, would be an educational treat for any audience.
