From Desperation to Dedication: Lessons You Can Bank On

Troy Evans didn’t go to bank robbing school. He didn’t read a manual or serve an apprenticeship. Like many of his peers, he was simply a natural at finding the path of least resistance.

Troy takes us beyond the profile reports of the common criminal and offers first-hand accounts so tangible that his audiences will be talking about his stories for years. He answers question such as: What goes through the mind of an armed drug addict as he cases a bank branch? How does desperation spark inventive solutions? And, what can banks do to deter a desperate criminal?

Weaving the similarities between his motives for choosing a bank, the mistakes he made in his young life, and the tendency of human nature to choose the easy path, Troy’s parable-like delivery provides a real look at how we can secure our banks as we would our own lives.

Rehabilitated and committed to helping those he once hurt, Evans is now a speaker who can take bankers beyond the profile sheets and provide them with a look inside the mind of a real-life bank robber.

“Troy’s history as a student-athlete and then to drugs, bank robberies, federal prison, and then to success through education is a compelling story. The audience of bankers was held at full attention as he told how he came to rob banks and how he selected his victims. His story of overcoming adversity with determination is a valuable motivation to adults.”
– Jim Simpson, Dacotah Bank
