Who let the Dogs Out

Corporate Presentation (60 mins including questions)

The theme of this presentation is “dogs” and the “guard dogs” are the controls, policies and procedures in our organizations that are there to warn us, guide us and ultimately protect us. In this frank presentation about his experiences in the Corpo rate Banking World, Brad talks about what circumstances and actions led to his eventual arrest, the ensuing court case and t he reality of prison life. He explains about the consequences that he has to live with daily as a result of his poor choices , even though those choices were in many instances over 10 years ago.

Woven into the presentation is the premise that all decisions have consequences and that people make much wiser decisions wh en they understand the consequences of their actions.

The presentation is interspersed with light hearted moments yet is impacting in its delivery.
