WILFRED EMMANUEL-JONES: THE BLACK FARMER£7

Jeopardy is not only the title of Wilfred’s book; it is, he argues, the single greatest catalyst for making things happen. This certainly applies to his own life. From a deprived childhood to his status as one of the country’s most famous and successful farmers, via stints at the BBC and in marketing, he remortgaged his house to launch The Black Farmer brand in 2005; now the business has an annual turnover in the millions and its food is sold in all major supermarkets. (He also found time to run as Conservative candidate for Chippenham.) He will b in conversation with broadcaster Bill Buckley.
