Are real life criminals anything like the ones we see on TV? To find out, join Conor Woodman, acclaimed author, television journalist and film maker as he opens up about the thieves, psychopaths and opportunists he met all over the world while researching his latest book - SHARK$ - Investigating the Criminal Heart of the Global City.
For the last four years Conor has investigated crime all over the world for the BBC, ITV and National Geographic Channel on shows such as Scam City, Watchdog and Exposure. Now, for the first time, Conor talks live about some of his most hair raising experiences.
Featuring footage from his films and behind the scenes stories about how he tracked down and interviewed kidnappers, murderers, torturers, forgers, thieves and many more from the wrong side of the tracks, Conor's take on how crime affects us all is uniquely well informed.
Whether you're someone who travels often or just someone who is curious about what makes real life career criminals tick, this is the perfect way to forearm yourself before you next venture outdoors.
A seasoned after-dinner speaker, Conor has been invited to speak around the world on his previous adventures making Channel 4's show Around the World in 80 Trades and has appeared at prestigious literary festivals Hay on Wye, Cheltenham and Edinburgh.
Join him for a night of frank, funny and frightening tales from the frontline of adventure travel.
The evening will be hosted by author and journalist Elizabeth Day.
