E146 Punchline Talks! with Luke Freeman, Alex Cottrell, Sarah Mansfield and Dorian Wragg

Each Friday, Punchline-Gloucester.com editor Mark Owen is joined by leading Gloucestershire business figures from a range of backgrounds to review Friday's national and regional newspapers and discuss what is happening in their own business sector and their own individual businesses.

Finally, they round off by picking the stories that have caught their eye in this week's Punchline-Gloucester.com.

The Business Breakfast Briefer show is sponsored by Hazlewoods Accountants and Business Advisors.

This week's panel of experts were:

Luke Freeman - CEO - MF Freeman Group of family owned companies specialising in residential property development, retirement schemes and commercial property - the group has over 100 staff and a approx. turnover of £30million. We find out more about the company and its developments and its green credentials.

Alex Cottrell - manager of Gloucester Growth Hub - she has taken on a new role at the University of Gloucestershire and we find out what it is and why its so important that businesses engage with the University.

Sarah Mansfield - Joint MD and co-owner of the Gloucester Food Dock. The new £3.5million food and hospitality hot house has opened to the public with eight of its proposed fifteen business now trading. We find out whose next and their time tables, plus whose trading the best.

Dorian Wragg - partner at Bruton Knowles chartered surveyors which has a 160 staff and a turnover of circa £14million. Dorian is a commercial property guru. We find out from him why Gloucester commercial and retail property sector is doing so well and he feels better then Cheltenham. Dorian does dip in and out of the show as his internet connection is problematic, but being a professional - he sticks with it. As do we with him and his dodgy internet.
