VIDEO Punchline Talks: Friday Briefing Feb 5

Another week in lockdown is almost over and it has again thrown up many stories for Punchline-Gloucester.com's Friday Business Briefing panel to discuss.

Each week, editor Mark Owen is joined by a panel of Gloucestershire's leading business figures to run the rule over the headlines which caught their eyes in the papers and on Punchline - and the stories behind them.

  • Andy Hogarth - Financial planning manager, Hazlewoods
  • Ben Ramsay - Managing director, Barnwood Construction
  • Stephen Shortt - Chief executive, Hawkins & Brimble
  • Oliver Williams - Property director, Staylets

Among the issues discussed this week are the impact of the pandemic and the growth in online shopping on the logistics and construction industries, changing business models for larger businesses, the introduction of hotel quarantine for arrivals from overseas, the economic effect of no race fans at Cheltenham Festival and working through lockdown in various sectors.

Subscribe to the Punchline daily newsletter to be among the first to see the weekly Friday briefings.
