It’s Not All Fun and Games
He is a serious, funny and entertaining keynote speaker with topical presentations that endure. He tells his story about the consequences of fraud in corporate America and the lack of ethics that cripple businesses and devastate the individuals and families involved.

Keynote Presentations of Jerome Mayne
Fraud and Consequences is the story of Jerome’s experience as a regular guy in his mid 20s, with a regular family and working a regular job as a loan officer. He gets approached by a group of sketchy “real estate investors” and proceeded to work with them.
Over the ensuing months, he started to realize that the actions and activities by his new clients were not on the up-and-up. Instead of blowing the whistle he got further involved. He became part of the group with which he would one day be a co-conspirator. He cut ties with the “real estate investors” and moved on to legitimate entrepreneurial endeavors.
After 4 years of being ‘in the clear,’ he is indicted and charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud, wire fraud and money laundering. For the next year he experienced pre-trial, federal court and received a 21 month federal prison sentence. Life as he knew it changed forever. Leaving his family, including two small children, he reported to the federal prison in Yankton, South Dakota. He met a host of characters; some new friends and some new enemies.
In this keynote presentation you will hear about the trials and tribulations of the consequence of committing mortgage fraud. With a combination of Jerome’s story telling abilities and his entertainment background you will feel the emotional anguish. However, you will also laugh at the comedy he found in the middle of his nightmare.
Workshops on Ethics and Professional Development
Jerome is not just an entertaining keynote speaker on fraud. He is still involved in professional improvisation and stand-up comedy which lends to the wit part of the ‘wit and passion.’ Using the principles of improvisation for his professional development workshops, your group will be led through interactive exercises. Topics and sessions include leadership communication, cross-functional communication, workshops on developing teamwork and ethics. A hands on, interactive approach to professional skill building ensures maximum retention and gives your group skills that can be used immediately on the job. These professional development workshops are highly engaging and applicable to the workplace but noteworthy, they are also extremely fun.
