The first was the founder and CEO of the studio, Robert Laycock, and he was joined by Ellie Evans, Senior...

How to be more productive

The Business Show today goes about as far afield as we can, with Paul Minors chatting to us from New Zealand, but he was born in Hampshire so has some UK credentials.

One way that he does that is to help people to use some of the more popular productivity tools on the market – it’s one thing to buy it, it’s another thing completely to...

In another first for The Business Show, my guest this week is my first from Australia! I first met Gina Balarin at a Business Biscotti event where we were both guest speakers.

Morphing a hobby into a business

1/8/2022
My guest in my first podcast of 2022 is Charity Haynes, founder and CEO of Haynes Gourmet. She lives just a few hundred metres from me, despite the accent from the south of the USA, which she hasn’t lost in her 25 years living in the UK. The company’s main line is candied jalapenos, and they want to “pimp up everybody’s food”. So how did she go from bringing a few jars in her suitcase when returning from trips to the States, to making her own for friends and family, before morphing that...
