The award-winning SCLT presentation includes videos and fully illustrated visual aids as well as audio and sound content.
At the conclusion of his visit, Jon commented’ “What a great crowd the Wesley Guild have been today. They were very attentive and absorbed all the advice I was able to offer around being extremely cautious when dealing with any encounter in which an unknown source asks for personal or financial details. I hope every member of my audience will go away feeling a little bit more confident about handling the next scam event that touches their lives.”
