On Saturday 6th April 2019, Conkers3‘s Peter Higgins had the huge pleasure of working with the Master Investor Show under the fantastic stewardship of their Chief Commercial Officer Amanda Taylor. As well as compering on the Rising Stars Stage, Peter conducted 4 interviews with thought leaders and innovators; including that of Jim Mellon, the UK’s self made billionaire investor, entrepreneur, philanthropist, author and owner of the Master Investor Show. With 5000 delegates, 100 companies/exhibitors and 50 high quality speakers, the day reached its pinnacle with Jim Mellon, delivering from the main stage to a packed audience, a riveting, insightful view on markets, politics, macro-economics, risks, investments themes and investment opportunities. A number of people told Peter that it was the best Master Investor Show they’d ever attended!
