When Fraud Is Not Fiction: A Storytelling Venture
**This just in! Rumnor has it that the talk will be provocative. She will likely bring clips from her award-winning documentary, “All the Queen’s Horses” which shows again next week at the Sisley Center in Chicago!**
Ivy Walker, CEO of Helios Digital, will share how the company uses storytelling to create immersive and engaging experiences that help students and professionals learn, retain and integrate ethical lessons. These lessons matter whether you're teaching accounting, law or management, onboarding new employees or training a corporate board.
