Speaker Bio

Brad Sadler was convicted of fraud and corruption totalling R50 million and was eventually sentenced to 4 years in prison. Brad has a saying “CRIME DOES PAY – be careful who does the paying, I pay every single day of my life”.


Many who attend seminars, conferences and teaching times where Brad has been invited to participate ask this question – “What do you actually do?”


Brad Sadler - a convicted fraudster has become the unwitting toast of South Africa’s conference lecture circuit. He entered the conference circuit after a friend, a forensic auditor, suggested he speak at an annual fraud conference. Now he “educates” groups as diverse as public service students, youth groups and blue-chip multi-nationals. “People need to realise that controls and procedures are there to protect them; controls will keep them out of prison,’’ he said. “And they must understand there are very real consequences to their actions.”

Former high-flying Durban banker Brad Sadler, sentenced to four years behind bars for fraud and corruption totalling a whopping R50 million, is being paid to tell people on the outside, including corporate employees and their wide-eyed bosses, why he spent time on the inside.

The former blue-eyed boy at NBS Bank, who served time in prison before being paroled in 2001, speaks to companies and at conferences warning staff of the consequences of fraud, imploring decision makers not to ignore it and helping embattled forensics auditors to detect it.


Listed below is a summary of the topics and details of what is covered in his “themed” presentations.



Brad Sadler – Motivational Speaker uses some of the lighter yet thought provoking incidents during his time in prison to reinforce his belief that “We can help people stay Honest”.

Keynote Topic #1

Who let the Dogs out (60-80 minutes incl questions)

The theme of this presentation is “dogs” and the “guard dogs” are the controls, policies and procedures in our organisations that are there to warn us, guide us and ultimately protect us.

In this frank presentation about his experiences in the Corporate Banking World, he talks about what circumstances and actions led to his eventual arrest, the ensuing court case and the reality of prison life.

He explains about the consequences that he has to live with daily as a result of his poor choices, even though those choices were in many instances over 10 years ago.

Woven into the presentation is the premise that all decisions have consequences and that people make much wiser decisions when they understand the consequences of their actions.

The presentation is interspersed with light hearted moments yet is impacting in its delivery.

Keynote Topic #2

Sunscreen is not an optional extra (60-80 minutes incl questions)

The theme of this presentation is the “beach” and the premise is that the continuous application of Fraud Prevention Policies and Programs is key to protecting the individual and the organisation.


This presentation is a follow on presentation from “Who let the Dogs out” and challenges organisations to implement a multi-faceted approach to Fraud Awareness and Prevention.
