Economist, author and presenter Conor Woodman demonstrated his journalistic integrity during his captivating four-part television series, Around the World in 80 Trades (2009), in which Conor set off to investigate how people trade around the world in different global economies. The programme, which aired on Channel 4, followed Conor as he left his home in London and embarked on a round-the-world trading adventure travelling over four continents in just five months. To accompany the show, Conor wrote, Around the World in 80 Trades – The Adventure Capitalist.
Inspired by his travels, Conor founded the Unfair Trade project, which aims to find suitable trading solutions for the poorest of countries.
Conor has often appeared as a guest speaker on BBC Radio Four and has given talks at many literature festivals. He also presents an enterprise and innovation skills seminar at the National Enterprise Academy.
