Conor Woodman

Author & Star of Channel 4's Around the World in 80 Trades

Conor Woodman may be that rare thing - a likable former city boy. A former market analyst, Woodman wanted to see if he can make his fortune by doing business the old way: face to face, haggling, buying and selling. With £25,000 of his own money he set out to double his fortune in 5 months which he achieved. His Channel 4 series and 2009 book show that the principles of trade are universal, life-enhancing and guaranteed to survive the madness of the credit crunch.
