At the age of 24, Sir Lloyd Dorfman opened a small currency exchange shop in London. His company, Travelex, went on to become the world’s leading foreign exchange specialist.
Lloyd and George’s wide-ranging conversation, recorded live in London on 1 July, explores Lloyd’s business and philanthropic career, his family roots and Jewish identity, the essence of entrepreneurialism and whether one ever stops being a ‘migrant’.
