My guest today is Chris Lahiji, President and founder of LD Micro, host of one of the most influential micro-cap conferences in the world of professional investing. Chris takes pleasure in pretty much everything he does; his larger than life personality lends itself well to being the founder of one of the most interesting conferences I attend each year. Chris’ approach to his conferences and to life is energizing and contagious. He defines a successful conference as a carefully orchestrated sensory experience; a convergence of meeting and connecting with great people, learning about great ideas and management teams, and growing in the process.
Please enjoy my conversation with Chris Lahiji.
