Despite more audacious and larger scale incidents of rogue trading since the collapse of Barings in 1995, Nick Leeson remains the most infamous rogue trader and one of the world's most sought-after speakers within the financial sector. Curiosity, intrigue and sympathy have been the various reactions to this man's incredible life story. The collapse of Barings and Nick Leeson's role in it is one of the most spectacular debacles in modern financial history.

After Dinner Speaking
Nick Leeson's story has a number of human interest aspects that will astound any audience so his talks are not restricted to the world of suits and power lunches that he used to frequent.

Nick talks frankly about what happened with Barings, the lack of accounting safeguards, his capture and confinement for 9 months in a Frankfurt prison and being sentenced to 6 years by the Singapore court for forgery and cheating.

Conference Speaking and Consultancy
More recent cases such as Allied Irish Bank, the National Australia Bank scandal, Societe Generale and UBS in 2011 simply highlight that loopholes haven't been closed. Nick Leeson is expertly placed to provide consultancy on risk management, compliance and corporate responsibility.

"Rogue trading is probably a daily occurrence amongst the financial markets. Not enough focus goes on those risk management areas, those compliance areas, those settlement areas, that can ultimately save them money."

Nick speaks to financial institutions, banks and businesses around the world. He also addresses universities and has spoken at the Oxford Union, Trinity College Dublin, Warwick University and the University College Cork. Conference speeches can be tailored to your specific requirements.
