Talk with David Craig "The Great Savings and Pensions Scandal"
David Craig spent most of his career selling for some of the world’s best and worst management consultancies. After writing two whistleblowing books, Rip-Off and Plundering the Public Sector, about how consultants take millions from businesses and government departments while delivering little of value, he was blacklisted and so left the profession. Since then he has written several books about government incompetence, stupidity and waste, including Squandered: How Gordon Brown is wasting over one trillion pounds of our money and Fleeced: How we’ve been betrayed by politicians, bureaucrats and bankers, both of which won the Hammond Whiteley journalism award. His talk is based on two of his books "Pillaged! How they’re looting £413 million a day from your savings and pensions" and "Don’t buy it! The tricks and traps salespeople use and how to beat them" which has just been published.
