Episode 37, That Great Business Show

Presented by Conall O Morain


3.00" Aidan Donnelly, Head of Equities, Davy gives Bitcoin the bullet. He says that buying into any cryptocurrency when you don’t really know what it is feels more like an analysis of the 2.10 race at Chepstow using the colour of the jockey’s silks. And, don't worry if you know nothing about Bitcoin or any of the other dodgy coins, Aidan explains it all in the TeamGBS way, absolutely no jargon allowed.


19.00" Doyenne of Irish fashion, Helen McAlinden explains who 'creates' fashion, where it comes from, what happens to the 'winter collection' when no one buys it, how she spreads her brand working with Foxford Woolen Mills in Mayo and Finline Furniture in Laois. With her 'bricks and mortars' shop on Dublin's South William Street, she has a practical solution to the current traffic mess that discourages shoppers. Her 'hire in a heartbeat'? Liam Casey, Liam Casey, founder and CEO of global PCH.


38.00" Sharon Jordan, with a huge background in the travel trade (it seems she's worked for most of the big Irish brands and some stage) seized an opportunity to buy the travel trade bible Irish Travel Trade Network, covering travel and tourism in Ireland and the world. She has advice for Fáilte Ireland to tell US travellers that Ireland is opening up for their business and she tells TeamGBS why they should avoid Portugal but head for the sun in Greece. Not surprisingly, her 'hire in a heartbeat' is Willie Walsh, former Aer Lingus, British Airways and IAG boss.
