The trainer had a highly successful, long, and varied “fast track” career in Lloyds Bank which led him to a very senior management position in the bank’s private banking and wealth management division at an early age. He was then “headhunted” to join a merchant bank at main board director level to head both the private bank and the group risk management function. He now has over 40 years of experience in managing risk in the UK banking and financial services sector.
He has been a freelance risk management training consultant since retiring and is currently an external Master Trainer at both HSBC and Bank of China where he has delivered major projects on a wide range of topics. At HSBC he helped design their global flagship Risk Management Programme for senior middle managers and has delivered this globally for the past 5 years. He has also created and delivered training to a vast range of clients, from global giants to small firms and partnerships. He is an accomplished global trainer and has delivered extensive programmes in the UK, USA, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.
He is a highly adaptive, hands-on, and highly sought-after facilitator who always receives excellent feedback from delegates. He is comfortable training at any level of seniority and experience, from “black belts” to novices. In addition to his risk management specialism, his expertise includes but is not limited to Risk Management, Trade Finance, Regulatory Compliance, FCC & AML, and all aspects of Corporate, Private & Retail Banking. He is also a highly experienced soft skills trainer and has completed numerous “train the trainer” assignments.
