This variety of techniques ensures information transfer is successful and that learning is embedded and enduring.

Craig has written published workbooks on Options, and recently developed & delivered specialist workshops on Operational Risk within Banks. He has is a member of the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI) and holds the International Operations Certificate. The experience of training across the many different cultures has given him the key understanding of the individual needs and expectations so that he has the ability to reach out and support all their learning requirements. Craig’s ability to simplify and illustrate even the most complex topics, results in clients regularly requesting a wide range of programmes and varied delivery techniques. Corporate/banking experience Craig’s investment banking career spanned many areas from an early accounting/audit and Treasury operations role at Samuel Montagu in London, onto risk control and subsequently to multi-currency fixed income risk and portfolio management at S-E-Banken.
