Featured Speaker: Walter Pavlo
Walt Pavlo provides a transparent and insightful talk on his experience as a senior manager at MCI Telecommunications (later became WorldCom). He managed nearly $1 billion in monthly billing and receivables for the company's resale division. When a business strategy to target high-return customers failed, he and a group of young MBAs devised a plan to "make the numbers." After a short while, this evolved into a $6 million embezzelment scheme. Pavlo's story is one of the dangers of the slippery slope, tone at the top and consequences for making the wrong decisions.
