Travelling through four continents over five months, he turned his hand to making a profit out of everything from camels in Sudan to inflatable surfboards in Mexico, to discover how real people make real money in real markets.

Conor managed to provide the ideal blend of fact and entertainment. His anecdotal style made for an interesting and amusing presentation that served to remind us that spotting an opportunity, having the ability to negotiate and knowing your market are the same fundamental principles applicable to whatever – and wherever – you choose to trade.
