Entrepreneur in the Hot Seat: An evening with Peter Cruddas

Peter Cruddas, Entrepreneur of the Year 2007 and CEO of CMC Markets, will be on campus again to share his experiences of building an international financial trading company from an initial personal investment of just £10,000 into a one billion pound company without any outside shareholders or debt. Peter left school at 15 without any formal education and from a deprived background with challenging family circumstances.  His is a true rags to riches story.

This year’s event will take the format of a question and answer session – the entrepreneur in the hot seat.   As well as inviting you to register for the event, we are also asking you to submit interesting and challenging questions for Peter.   A selection of the best questions will be chosen for Peter to answer at the event.

The event will take place in the School of Business & Economics at 5pm on 1st Dec 2010.   Everyone attending the event is invited to a buffet reception afterwards.

Please contact Amy Bowmar (a.bowmer@lboro.ac.uk) by Friday 26th November to register and for a form if you wish to send in a question (you can still register if you don’t wish to ask a question). One question is permitted per form.
