Entrepreneurs as risk-takers
Lessons from the underworld
The British Bankers' Association have described Jeffrey Robinson as 'the world's most important financial crime journalist.' A New Yorker based in London, his books include The Laundrymen, a shocking insight into the money laundering racket, and The Risk Takers: the money, ego and power of Britain's high-flying entrepreneurs.
Jeffrey served for four years in the US Air Force before taking up residence in a tiny village in the south of France. He then 'vagabonded' around the world writing pieces for American papers and magazines including the Washington Post, Reader's Digest and Playboy.
Jeffrey has since written several acclaimed biographies. Yamani is the inside story of Saudi Arabia's former oil minister; Bardot - Two Lives is the first account ever to be written with the cooperation of the French sex-icon. More recently he co-authored Ronnie Wood's autobiography.
Alongside tales of the rich and famous, Jeffrey's speeches cover the best and worst of customer service, and the characteristics shared by all risk-takers. He also reflects on how legitimate business has a lot to learn from international criminal organisations.
"Jeffrey was wonderful! We would definitely use him again." Springstreet
