It is not important how we come to the events in our lives…what is important is how we deal with those events
- Troy Evans, Professional Speaker and Author
On November 12, 1992, Troy Evans was sentenced to 13 years in Federal Prison. He was convicted of five armed bank robberies, in three states, over a six-month crime spree, and was sent to the Federal Correctional Complex in Florence, Colorado. His neighbors included such notorious criminals as Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols. Troy was released on December 13, 1999, over seven and one-half years later.
Despite the obstacles that only prison can produce, Troy was determined that his time behind bars would not be wasted time. Education would be his saving grace. After six months of filling out applications, writing essays, begging, pleading, and selling, Troy landed his first scholarship for one class. That was a beginning, and when Troy walked out the doors of prison he carried with him two degrees, both obtained with a 4.0 GPA and designation on the Dean’s and President’s list.
Troy is now a motivational speaker who shares his story and lessons learned with audiences of all ages. Since his release, Evans has taken the Corporate, Association and Education platforms by storm with his motivational keynote speeches. Audiences are stunned by his endurance, accomplishments and remarkable personal transformation. With straightforward, real life examples, Evans shows how the keys to his success in prison are the keys to his success today, and how these lessons can be applied to escaping the “prisons within ourselves”. He renews an appreciation for what is really important in all of our lives and motivates each and every person to overcome adversity, adapt to change, and to realize their full potential.
With young people, Evans speaks openly on the dangers of drug use, peer pressure and the power of responsible decision-making. His student motivational speaking grabs the attention of today’s youth by sharing what he witnessed within the harsh environment of a Federal Prison and illustrates how his years of incarceration can be linked to the decisions he made as a teenager. Teen audiences are left with a wide-eyed understanding of “consequence” and a realization that the decisions they make today have the potential to alter their entire life.

A 45 minute webinar/audioconference titled “Robbery Prevention, Apprehension and Recovery: Through the Eyes of a Former Bank Robber”. This latest training in robbery prevention, apprehension and recovery comes in MP3 format with PowerPoint slides that go hand in hand with the material covered.
For those Financial Institutions who have utilized my DVD/CD ROM “Deterring and Responding to Robberies: A Training Tool for Financial Institutions” as your standard of robbery training over the last few years you will find this to be a great compliment in expanding on areas already covered as well as new insights into “Robber Proofing” your Financial Institutions.
Historically bank/credit union robberies have increased dramatically over the last 20 years. Combine this with our current economy, the high unemployment rate, our countries preoccupation with drugs and the ease in which gambling can be accessed and we find ourselves in a time where “Robber Proofing” your financial institution has never been more important. When it comes to Robbery Prevention, Apprehension and Recovery no one can provide us greater insight than Troy Evans.
Today he is a speaker and consultant, sharing his story of endurance and personal transformation with audiences around the world. For over a decade now, he has provided financial institutions with real-life insight surrounding robbery prevention, apprehension and recovery. He didn’t go to bank-robbing school. He didn’t read a manual or serve and apprenticeship. Like many of his peers, he was simply a natural at finding the path of least resistance.
Having met and interviewed over 300 bank and credit union robbers he is able to give us a “look into the mind of the enemy”.
