“A great success. I was there for the first two days and I really enjoyed it. The line-up was absolutely first rate”
"This was a great mix of presentations; expertise and companies present-I have bought into 3 immediately and several others in the pipeline"
"A superb event overall with an amazing line-up of speakers".
“Well done on Derby. I've already taken some actions resulting... packed with lessons and insights so what a great event.“
It is always great to see as many companies as possible, but to be able to spend a whole morning taking in the wisdom of a number of fund managers who are clearly passionate about small caps was so valuable. And then to be able to discuss it at length with old and new friends in the evening was the perfect foil for all of those hours one finds oneself stuck behind a monitor trying to understand a firm.
I came away from Derby refreshed and reinvigorated towards my investment career, the exact opposite in fact of the weary disappointed feeling I have from other shows that seem to be entirely geared towards sucking in punters with irrelevant and inappropriate nonsense.
Thank you for the conference and all the work that goes into these things. I really enjoyed it and learnt from it.
First class event. My thanks to you and David, all the helpers, speakers and Companies who helped in showcasing the attractions of investing in UK smaller companies in such an informative and enjoyable fashion.
Mello2014 was an absolute triumph, and everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy it.
The overall effort & organisation that went into the event by David & his team deserves total praise. And the filtering of companies presenting - my only worry being that I found almost all of them impressive & investable; maybe I'm going soft?
