Are You Being Scammed Right Now?’


As a ‘Financial Raconteur’ I talk about the many ways that the ‘World of Money’ impacts our lives.

In this lecture, I look at the extraordinary ways that financial criminals will go to in order to get their hands on our money and I detail some of the most outrageous financial criminals in history.  More ‘down to earth’ I look at some of the ways we may be unwittingly playing into the hands of the criminals and fraudsters and some simple steps we may take to protect ourselves.

Proposed Lecture



I was educated at The Oratory School in Berkshire before studying at Liverpool University for a BA Hons. In Social and Environmental Studies.  On a whim I set off for London with a car and a sleeping bag and as outlined in my book ‘All That Glitters’ I was recruited the very next day into the financial world that was ‘The City’ in London in the heady days of the early nineteen eighties.  I remained in this world for over thirty years before running my own business training enterprise and lecturing for some of the leading cruise lines such as P&O, Fred Olsen and Celebrity.  My current project involves a leading Chamber of Commerce in helping their businesses in Customer Service, Presentation Skills and Business Networking.
