Photo Article No 2 Sharestock 2023 - the worst dressed speaker contest, Jim's Dog meets one of my cats & the Tingo spy

By Tom Winnifrith | Wednesday 27 September 2023

Disclosure: I own shares in one or more of the stocks mentioned. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

After Brian Kinane finished it was myself and Peter Brailey on oil stocks. I want you to appreciate how awful is his dress sense. Jim Mellon’s dog could not handle Peter’s shirt and went outside to talk to one of my cats and also to my wife and Dominic Frisby, a man sporting an equally high volume jacket. My wife is the lady not leading the dog, that is Jim's sister.

Then Cathal Friel for Poolbeg and Colin Patterson of Bluebird Merchant Ventures who both, thought, got a good grilling from myself but gave a good account of themselves. Then it was on to Lucian Miers and myself on inter alia the fraud Tingo (TIO)

I have just been told that a good friend of Darren Mercer of Tingo who once opined that I should be burned to death was seated in the front row at least at the start of the day and the Peter Brailey session ( the large chap in the stripey jacket). But I can't see him in Lucian's talk so maybe he did not want to hear the truth. If he was lurking elsewhere, I hope he enjoyed the latest exposes from Lucian on the fraud where, I’m sure, he’s invested and am sorry that I did not suffer from spontaneous combustion to make him happy.

Before we knew it, it was lunchtime and Lucian was off the leash and heading to the bar.

One of the joys of ShareStock is that all the speakers hung around by the bar allowing for numerous informal chats. The picture below is of my children and I during the AI session with Brian Kinane.
