From debauched swindler to in-demand sales spinner: an audience with The Wolf of Wall St.

Jordan Belfort is, as The Independent wrote, “among the most infamous crooked businessmen in recent history”. And, as Martin Scorcese’s movie The Wolf of Wall St showed, he was also one of the most debauched. But after serving time following his 2004 conviction for defrauding clients out of more than $200 million, he claims to have seen the error of his ways and has reinvented himself as a motivational speaker specialising in sales techniques. Jenene Crossan dances with the Wolf.
