VIDEO Punchline Talks - Friday Briefing, July 16

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:

  • Dave Oldfield, owner at Blue Sky Signs Ltd.
  • Patricia Hay, founder and director at First Base Employment Ltd.
  • Oliver Williams, property director at Stay Lets.
  • Neill Ricketts, CEO of #Graphene manufacturers - Versarien plc.

It is a lively informative chat with Neill Ricketts dressed up as the chap from the YMCA and Ollie looking nothing like the PR Shot provided. David and Tricia are new to the show but you'd never know as the panel worked their way through the papers before getting behind the nitty gritty of their own businesses and market place.

All had interesting sides of their businesses to tell: Neill with the exclusive of the first graphene concrete in the world poured for a residential property in Gloucestershire yesterday, Tricia and the difficulty that all recruitment agencies are having finding 'people!' Ollie is flat out with holiday and business lets at Stay Lets, as more and more of us decide to stay at home but also to use his business as a bolt hole whilst moving home and finally Dave's move into his bigger premises and into greener signage solutions.

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 fun informative business news - something for everyone who is generally interested in business.
