Insurance Industry Keynote Speaker
Jerome is an author, keynote speaker and a former federal inmate.
Riveting Keynote Speaker and Felon
While he is not proud of his status as a former white collar criminal and felon, his stories are real. His gripping account of how he got caught up in a white collar conspiracy is serious and actually humorous. His presentations are the perfect mix of something different, relevant, powerful, gripping, serious and, since he introduces much needed comic relief -- he also brings the funny.
Top Rated Speaker
Jerome is one of the nation's top rated speakers on finance and insurance fraud, and ethics in the country. He has been speaking at insurance and finance conferences and conventions since 2001. As you can imagine, he has quite a few stories to tell about about fraud, ethics and prison.
Ethics Lessons From an Ex-Con
Most conferences and conventions of insurance companies and associations like to offer ethics continuing education credit. Jerome's programs are always approved. Additionally, Jerome receives high, if not the highest marks at events for his presentations.
In addition to his extensive background in the insurance and finance industries, he toured the mid-western United States as a stand-up comedian. While insurance fraud is no joke, Jerome includes comic relief in his keynote presentations. His humor is clean and always well received.
"I work with organizations who want their people to make the right decisions when the right decisions aren’t easy. My focus is on the continuing development of ethical attitudes and positive choices."
“The staff found your presentation very compelling. I still believe this is the message our production folks need to hear about.”

The Insurance Industry Fraud and Prison Story
In his mid 20s, Jerome pursued a career in the finance industry. Gaining the experience he needed, he set off on his own and started both a real estate and a mortgage finance company.
A few years into his new ventures, 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.
He received a 21 month prison sentence. His career and his happy family life were changed forever.
He is now a dynamic, highly sought after finance and insurance industry keynote speaker with the unique ability to deliver his riveting, heartfelt story with wit and passion.
