People might wonder why there's so many of these fake people with fake titles and fake CVs and fake organisations about. I won't claim to understand exactly how it works (I'm not sufficiently interested to find out, as it happens) but basically, it's useful to grasp that much of what Ray does is connected with Tony Buzan, who's a charlatan with a successful business model.
Some of what Ray and Tony do is directly Buzan empire stuff, some of it more ad hoc, but basically it involves holding events, which people pay to attend, under the impression that they are attending something important with (in one way or another) important people. Obviously if you can attract actually important people to help front your events, so much the better. And you organise events like this, or this, or this, or the Brain Trust dinner, or what you will. You make a bit of money off the marks, you make some useful contacts for next time, and so on.
Also, if you do some of this, you get to meet like-minded people who are interested in being part of your circle, which is where your Trowman-Roses, and your Kasperskis come from.
