Neil Weinberg has been featured as the keynote speaker by professional societies, universities and at numerous corporate events. His talks focus on business ethics, white-collar crime, executive pay, the boom and bust cycles in financial markets and personal finance.
Weinberg’s talks draw on his work as Executive Editor at Forbes magazine and Forbes.com, where he is in charge of Wall Street and Personal Finance coverage. His talks discuss the gray ethical environment in which corporate wrongdoing occurs, the slippery slope down which many executives slide and the consequences that await them. Weinberg cites numerous examples, including those currently in the news (Bernard Madoff, AIG, Merrill Lynch, the housing industry). His addresses also draw on his research as co-author of Stolen Without A Gun: Confessions from Inside History’s Biggest Accounting Fraud—the Collapse of MCI WorldCom (Etika Books, 2007). A regular cast member on the weekly Fox News television program Forbes on Fox, Weinberg is a frequent commentator on CNBC and Fox News. He is regularly asked to discuss current events by other media outlets, including National Public Radio, PBS, the British Broadcasting Corp and network news programs.
