Have your say

The president of outdoor retailer GO Outdoors is the latest millionaire to feature on a panel of business heavyweights at a conference next month.

Paul Caplan will join Straight boss Jonathan Straight, R&R Ice Cream’s James Lambert and LNT Group chairman Lawrence Tomlinson on the Billion Pound Panel at the Yorkshire Mafia Conference.

GO Outdoors is a fast-growing retailer with 40 outdoor stores nationwide and plans for over 100 throughout the UK. Mr Caplan previously built and sold retail chain Bankrupt Clothing Company.

Mr Caplan said: “I’ve had plenty of experience of having to pick myself up from the bottom and build an empire from scratch. This first-hand experience will allow me to offer invaluable insights into the challenges that entrepreneurs face, and how you can overcome the numerous hurdles put in your way.”

The conference is being held on March 21 and 22 at The Royal Armouries in Leeds. For further details, visit
