Conkers’ Corner “Thought Leaders” podcasts
Whereas Conkers’ Corner podcasts focus on the sharing of learnt investing knowledge, Conkers’ Corner “Thought Leaders” podcasts are dedicated to sharing leadership, career and professional journey experiences. These podcasts have also been created by @conkers3 Peter Higgins. He came up with the concept in 2017, to provide additional insights and a learning platform for all. The participants in the “Thought Leaders podcasts and interviews will include professionals in their field; leaders in their specialism; serial entrepreneurs; Fund Managers; Business Leaders; CEOs & CFOs. They will freely share their views on their career highs and lows, their learning, what drives their passion for the specialism they are in and what they see as future prospects and opportunities.
Are you someone or do you know someone that would enjoy sharing their insights with me on the Conkers’ Corner Thought Leaders podcasts? Then please contact me

Giles Hurn - Private Investor
Peter is a man of the utmost integrity and has been a source of friendship and a deep well of inspirational knowledge since we first met. He has shown both a warmth and kindness that are such rare commodities these days. His advice and tutorage has helped me to clarify my own thought processes and enabled me to see how success and humbleness are not incompatible but can both be achieved and nutured in every aspect of one’s life.
Despite juggling a large number of commitments; charitable, professional and personal, Peter has always found time to be there for me, to bounce ideas off, to consult and to advise.

Peter very quickly, after hearing my story, linked me to an investor which has enabled me to accelerate my business plans. If you are looking for events, investment, introductions, facilitation I would recommend Peter, who always operates with integrity.’

From Private Investors to Professional Institutional Asset Managers. Peter with Conkers Corner puts them all together in a Podcast that is worth exponentially the time to listen in. Conkers Corner is a Premier destination for all participants, learners, knowledge seekers in the Investing world. Finally a Podcast where there’s a free exchange of ideas from the investing community without the technicalities, the jargon and the fear of the unknown. I recommend anyone interested in the investing topic to listen in, participate and engage.

‘It is easy to get cynical in the world of investments because of the pursuit of profit. Wiser investors realise that the key to achieving investment success is keeping humble and retaining an open mind. There are few in my 20+ year career in the professional investment area who exhibits these latter traits as well as Peter “Conkers” Higgins. As with many I first bumped into Conkers electronically on Twitter where he was providing useful links on individual stocks for no reason than just to raise the knowledge base of the wider world. Later he extended this further into the truly fascinating ‘Conkers Corners’ podcasts which had the simple aim of boosting the investment learning of his readers. I was proud to be asked to share my thoughts on one of these podcasts and contribute in some small way to his cause. I was even prouder to appear in the inaugural investment conference Peter put together in Cardiff where – to use one of his favourite themes – his mindfulness rang through. Today – and looking forward – Conkers is an essential follow on Twitter for anyone interested not just in UK equity investment but in building their knowledge about how to think about investments. He is an intellectual multiplier force for you – and a thoroughly nice guy too’.
