VIDEO Punchline Talks: Festive Friday Briefing

It is the Friday before Christmas so the festive hats are out for the final Punchline-Gloucester.com Business Briefing of the year.

Each week, a panel of Gloucestershire's leading business figures runs the rule over the headlines which caught their eyes - and the stories behind them.

Joining Punchline editor Mark Owen on the panel for the festive edition are:

  • Sam Holliday - Gloucestershire development manager, Federation of Small Businesses
  • Julie Kent MBE - Vice chair, Pied Piper Appeal
  • Steve Gardner-Collins - Chairman, Visit Gloucestershire
  • Neill Ricketts - Chief executive, Versarien

Among the topics discussed are differing coronavirus tier restrictions over Christmas, the worries surrounding head injuries and other sports, the ongoing difficulties facing hospitality, the electric car revolution and the differing health of charities - plus so much more.

The Friday Business Briefings will be back in the new year with a wide range of expert panellists - subscribe to the Punchline daily newsletter to be among the first to see and hear what they have to say.
