A charismatic and engaging keynote and after-dinner speaker, Alexis employs his knowledge of the dark and deceptive world of hustling, pickpockets and con-artists to speak candidly on the risks and security threats constantly faced by businesses and consumers.
Having devised and carried out over 500 scams he is in the rare position of being able to advise and educate, even the most foolhardy, on the issues affecting us in the real and virtual world. He also gives an insight into how to interpret human behaviour and body language and the communication techniques used to inspire confidence; skills the world’s most prominent scam artists rely on to achieve their unscrupulous aims.
Alexis can adapt his style from informative keynotes to entertaining after dinner cabaret, which include showing off his genius sleight of hand techniques to the amazement of large audiences.
Professional and charismatic speaker; engaged well with the audience and kept their interest throughout the presentation. Could have listened to Alexis and his amazing stories all day, but we ran out of time….

Alexis both before, during and after his talk was easy to approach and great to talk to. He managed to go way over the agreed 30min which shows how much he enjoys what he does and that transmits to the audience. Everybody was captivated by both his personality and stories and it was a perfect marriage really
Both interesting and entertaining. Alexis also spent time chatting to guests before and after speaking, was a pleasure to have at our event
Alexis did a great job – he was just the right balance and was well received by all present
