The Big Favour was the brainchild of UK self-made millionaire Andrew Reynolds. Held for the first time at London’s Excel Arena ICC, the event was attended by around 2000 people.
The Big Favour was a three day event for aspiring business owners, hosted by Andrew Reynolds. All the ticket sales were donated to leading children’s cancer charity, Children with Cancer UK. Since starting to support this London based charity in 2016, events organised by Andrew Reynolds have raised around £400,000 to help their work.
Most noteworthy, every penny goes straight to the charity from the event attendees when they book. Andrew Reynolds’ organisation takes no % for admin or event costs. The whole event is personally funded by Andrew Reynolds and as a result 100% of the ticket price goes straight to the children’s charity.

Andrew Reynolds said “I pulled in a lot of big favours from friends and associates in the trade. They flew in from around the globe to speak at this event, to help raise the money. Speakers from China, Australia and the USA, as well as UK, all did their part to make the Big Favour event very special”.
Speakers talked most of all about their own personal stories of success, form starting on shoestring budgets to becoming independently wealthy. Most speakers were self-made millionaires and multi-millionaires. All gave their time freely to provide inspiration to the attendees and to help raise the money for the charity.
