EPISODE 15: MANUFACTURING – CAN ESSEX LEAD THE UK TURNAROUND?

The UK – and particularly Essex – is no longer renowned as a world-leading manufacturing hotspot, but could that be about to change? In episode 15 of the Essex Business Podcast, three leading Essex business people offer their opinions on the recent supply-chain issues, the benefits of bringing manufacturing back to the UK and the county, and the support available to manufacturing companies of all sizes.

 

Andy Mair, Managing Director of Challenger Solutions discusses the issues and challenges the company has faced; John McCallion, Business Development Manager at the MTC talks about the support and initiatives available and Dave Atkinson, Head of Manufacturing and Regional Director for East England at Lloyds Bank explains what the Banking sector does to help develop the sector.

EPISODE 14: OPEN ALL HOURS – THE FATE OF THE 21st CENTURY BUSINESS PERSON

Ever since the advent of mobile phones, it has become increasingly difficult for anyone in business, but particularly managers and directors, to switch off from work at the end of the working day. Have we become 24/7 slaves to our job, with premature burnout the price we'll end up paying?

 

In this episode of the Essex Business Podcast we look at the implications – positive and negative – of constantly being in touch with the business.
