Pickpocket Lee Thompson Keynote speaker

Personal Safety Speaker.

Lee Thompson is a professional theatrical pickpocket. Lee now uses his extensive knowledge of pickpocketing and his ability as an entertainer to teach. As an edu-tainer speaker, he engages corporate audiences teaching about personal safety, how to stay safe and avoid theft. Lee advises on the tricks and techniques pickpockets use. And gives general personal safety advice on looking after belongings. As well as the precautions you should take to minimise loss in the case of theft.

Personal Safety Live Demonstrations.

Lee’s personal safety session features entertaining live demonstrations using members of the audience. His own personal library footage of pickpockets in action. And where appropriate the use of a custom built mannequin which is electronically rigged to detect pressure. So that audience members can experience the skill needed to “pick a pocket”!

Lee’s aim is to highlight the dangers of complacency and to be aware of the importance of exercising discretion, staying aware of your belongings. Avoiding putting yourself into risky situations, how to avoid becoming a “mark” (or target) and the importance of staying vigilant in crowds. 

His motto is “Don’t travel fearfully — travel carefully!”
