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 “head hunted” to join a merchant bank at the main board director level to head the risk management function. The trainer now has over 40 years of experience in the UK banking and financial services sectors. He volunteered in both of his career roles to design, create and deliver soft skills training to colleagues at all levels of seniority, mainly because he enjoyed it and received consistently good feedback from delegates.
The trainer has been a freelance soft skills training consultant since retiring and is currently an external Master Trainer at both HSBC, and Bank of China, where he has delivered soft skills training on a wide range of topics. At HSBC, he helped screen and assess both prospective and existing trainers for soft skills capabilities and has delivered the training programmes. At Bank of China, he has designed and successfully delivered a comprehensive presentation skills programme. He has created and delivered soft skills 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 soft skills specialization, his expertise includes but is not limited to Risk Management, Trade Finance, Regulatory Compliance, FCC & AML and all aspects of Corporate, Private & Retail Banking.
This trainer also teaches Presentation Skills Course for Finance & Other Professionals and Business Development & Marketing Skills For Financial Services Professionals.
