Bruce Dickinson, who is best known as lead singer of the legendary heavy metal band Iron Maiden, will be in Croatia in November not singing on stage but talking business…

Dickinson, who first joined Iron Maiden in 1981, will be a guest speaker at the Croatia & Europa Business Angels conference held in Zagreb from 29-30 November 2016. Around 400 business angels and investors will gather for the conference which is an opportunity for local startups to network and attract investors.

One of the guest speakers will be the successful Iron Maiden singer, Davorin Štetner, President of the Croatian Business Angels Network revealed to HRT.

Away from Iron Maiden, Dickinson has many strings to his bow. He undertook a career as a commercial pilot and pilots Iron Maiden’s private plane, Ed Force One, during their world tours. Dickinson has also created his own aircraft maintenance and pilot training company, presented his own radio show, hosted television documentaries, authored novels and film scripts, created a successful beer with Robinsons Brewery and competed at fencing internationally.
