The world's most famous dodgy banker will be in Derry this week.
Nick Leeson achieved worldwide notoriety in the early 1990s when he lost millions of pounds caused the spectacular collapse of Barings Bank.
After details of the losses emerged, Leeson left a note reading "I'm sorry" and fled to Singapore.
Losses eventually reached £827 million, twice the bank's available trading capital.
After a failed bailout attempt, Barings was declared insolvent in February 1995.
Leeson was eventually captured and sentenced to six years in prison.
Following his release from prison, he carved out a successful career as a speaker.
He will be St Columb's Hall in Derry on Thursday night speaking at event entitled Big Bang to Tomlinson.
According to the organisers, the event is designed to kick start a conversation and encourage individuals and business owner to take control of their finances and show them that bankruptcy doesn't have to be their only option.
