As an unmitigated narcissist I will happily show up at your conference or event and talk nonsense for free (well, free + expenses). I will also be interviewed or dash off a few hundred words for your publication or website at no cost to yourself, if I believe it will give more people a better understanding of the world of systematic financial decision making.
- I'm presenting at this FXCM event in London, in June 2018
