Highlights From The Big Forex Breakfast

The Big Forex Breakfast took place on July 30, 2020. This exclusive webinar brought together the best sales, marketing and risk professionals from the forex sector. Organisers Contentworks Agency and Qube Events are finance savvy, well connected and keen to hear from the best thought leaders in the finance space. Throughout the lockdown period, both brands facilitated essential webinars that brought together banking, payments and fintech experts. The Big Forex Breakfast series was created in response to broker demands for short, insightful webinars that answer key industry questions. We really enjoyed co-hosting the event which we anticipate being the first of many. Here are our highlights from The Big Forex Breakfast.

Polls & Interaction

The Big Forex Breakfast is all about collaboration. We wanted to hear insights and opinions from not only the speakers, but also the attendees. As a social media marketing agency, we facilitated discussions throughout the webinar and over on Twitter. Our event polls provided us with some great insights as did our twitter chats using #bigforexbreakfast.



We all miss physical in person networking and The Big Forex Breakfast gave us a much needed boost.  Because we keep the guest list exclusive, there was plenty of scope for networking with other attendees. Our aim with The Big Forex Breakfast is to facilitate key discussions and meaningful networking. No spamming, no irrelevant conversations, just quality conversations that promote business growth.

And Lastly … Desmond’s Microphone

Chairman Desmond Leong’s microphone delighted the audience. Is he a secret radio star? Does he have a recording studio in his Singapore office? Only Desmond has the answers. Here’s Desmond pictured during the marketing panel moderated by Contentworks Niki.

On behalf of the Contentworks Agency and Qube Events teams, we would like to thank our sponsor, speakers and attendees. If you have feedback on our first BFB or would like to appear as a speaker at our next Big Forex Breakfast event, please contact us.
