  • Fourth annual FP Show keynote speaker Gerald Ratner to open proceedings
  • Complimentary Breakfast Networking taking place in the new Education Hub from 9.30-10.30am
  • 90 exhibitors confirmed for 9th November at Olympia Central

London’s largest broker-facing trade show is delighted to confirm Gerald Ratner – a British household name associated with one of the business world’s greatest falls from grace – as its very special guest speaker.

The all-new Education Hub will host a complimentary Breakfast Networking session from 9.30am with Gerald opening the show at 10.30am in the Shawbrook Bank Conference Theatre.

The former CEO of the family jewellery chain Ratners, whose profits hit £120m in 1990, Gerald’s now infamous gaffe disparaging the company's products resulted in him losing everything

A true comeback kind, Gerald's rags to riches story is a prime example of the value of branding and a sage lesson in picking oneself up after a disaster of very public proportions. 

Straight after Gerald’s address, the FP Show will host the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB) Annual General Meeting.  

The show is free to attend and visitors should register via The Finance Professional Show website.
