Toby Groves is a researcher, consultant, and speaker on organizational psychology addressing topics including corporate culture and fraud. Educated in forensic psychology and forensic accounting, Groves researches the role group psychology plays in aberrant organizational behaviors. The results of this research shattered Groves’ long-held assumptions about the psychology behind these events.
Groves has been a long time respected executive, CPA, and PhD student of psychology who also has exposure to the ‘dark side” of human behavior and corporate wrongdoing. Using groundbreaking research, interactive demonstrations, and a compelling personal story, Groves inspires audiences to think differently and make progress towards real solutions to these problems: an eye-opening, “must see” for anyone interested in understanding the fascinating psychological science behind our organizational behaviors, and particularly those involved in auditing, governance, culture, compliance, or leadership. He inspires audiences to think differently and make real progress towards understanding and improving our processes.
The Psychology of Fraud- Experience new research, story details and an intense interactive experience as one of the most popular and highly rated presentations in the industry.
Our understanding of how human behavior affects organizational decisions involving accounting, auditing and aberrant behaviors such as fraud are incomplete and our assumptions are flawed, leading to a variety of critical judgment errors. This presentation delves into the very latest breakthroughs in psychological research which uncover individual and group behaviors that reveal how our minds actually work in relation to these experiences.
What People are Saying:
“Toby’s presentation dealing with the logic and psychology of fraud brought about the highest attendance I have seen at our functions, people were literally listening from the corridors of the auditorium to hear Mr. Groves speak. His research on these issues, personal interviews, and real life experiences captivated the audience and brought about high reviews… I highly recommend it.” Matt S.
