E:60 Punchline Talks! With Neill Ricketts, Steve Gardner Collins, Emily Mackenzie and Ian Sloan

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

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

Taking their places on the business briefing panel this week were:

  • Steve Gardner-Collins - director and chair of Visit Gloucestershire.
  • Emily Mackenzie, chief operating officer and chapel steward at Gloucester Cathedral.
  • Ian Sloan, Bankier Sloan - chartered surveyor in Morton-in-Marsh & the Cotswolds.
  • Neill Ricketts, CEO of engineering company Versarien plc.

It is a lively informative chat with the panel working their way through the national papers before getting behind the nitty gritty of their own businesses and market place.

Covered today - possible war in Ukraine, the power of the media whipping up a storm, court ruling that makes it harder for the media to report on criminal suspects before they are charged. People continuing working from home and the cost this is having on the high street.

The effect that the storm will have on Gloucester Cathedral (after 1,000 years we think it is safe from being blown down this time). The need to balance tourism in the Cotswolds and the rest of the county.

More news on the latest robotic concrete and graphene and finally an update on the retail sector in the Cotswolds. A full packed show - slightly longer than normal.

The panel fire through lots of subjects, with news and views and there is something to learn for everyone who is interested in business from the people who are at the sharp end of running their companies. It is well worth the investment of time to listen to four top experts - in business you never stop learning.
