Speaker That is Serious and Humorous
How does an average guy with a regular job get involved in a white collar conspiracy? On top of that, how can such a serious story contain loads of humor?
Jerome is a former felon who made a series of horrible choices; worked with what turned out to be his future co-conspirators, early in his career. These decisions turned out to be federal crimes. Several years later, Jerome was indicted by federal prosecutors for a conspiracy to commit mail fraud, wire fraud and money laundering.
During his pretrial and after his prison sentence he toured as a stand-up comedian. This turned out to be the perfect training ground for being a keynote speaker. He is now able to convey his serious, riveting story with much comic relief. He is a favorite as a conference speaker for CPE.
Presentations on Fraud and Ethics
Choices and Consequences — life saving lessons from a felon
This is a keynote presentation. Quite unlike the high-profile fraud cases that get national media attention, Jerome was, and is, a regular guy. He was an average employee, without a scheme or devious plan, and gets involved with a few unsavory investor clients. His ‘unwitting involvement’ becomes intentional as the months go by. For fear of losing his job, he quits and sets off on his own. Four years later, he wound up in federal criminal court. (1 to 3 hrs)
Ethics Conference Speaker for CPE
Jerome has a unique perspective on fraud and ethics.
Rarely are the words ‘felon and prison’ used to describe a positive ethical experience.
He started his career as a legal assistant. He moved ahead and pursued a career as a real estate finance professional for two of the largest mortgage banking institutions in the United States. Gaining the experience he needed, he set off on his own. He started both a real estate and a mortgage company.
A few years into his new ventures, he received a call from the FBI, and was indicted for conspiracy to commit mail fraud, wire fraud and money laundering. These charges stemmed from activities that took place 4 years earlier — when he first started his career in the finance industry.
Jerome now speaks at CPA associations, internal auditors and fraud examiners conferences across the United States and Mexico.
