E19 That Great Business Show, Fulfillment 101, Sculpted by Aimee wants to crack Middle East, Orb Media makes your business sticky, What are 'The Right Questions', Covid Interns for your business


Covid has taught us that all businesses must now have an online presence. However, if you're selling physical products you have to consider who's going to fill those boxes? That's called fulfillment and it's a very tricky business, dealing with thousands of items, shipping them to thousands of customers, across many, many countries. However Team GBS comes to the rescue with this episode's line-up.

2.30" Ken Byrne, RedSky Europe, Kilkenny based company filling boxes and more for US and other companies shipping into the EU. Ken gives us the do's and don'ts of shipping, why they're developing a VAT platform, trebling employment in a year, raising cash...all the good things that businesses do. He also has some insight on how to develop a super strong jawline. You'll only hear it on That Great Business Show!

20.30" Aimee Connolly is Sculpted by Aimee, her own cosmetic brand stocked in hundreds and hundreds of outlets, including Boots across the UK but during Covid, nearly half her sales are now online. With a turnover of €5.4 million in just her fourth year, this powerhouse woman was one of the first adopters worldwide of using Facebook to promote her brand, why those days are over, why it's Tik Tok and Instagram now, what works best on Instagram, what's the next big marketing platform, how she's going to crack the massive Middle East market, and why she'll she no longer dismisses the idea of selling her business.

36.30 Ciara Sheahan wants to make your website sticky. Her amazing technology ("we're two years ahead of the curve") makes people watch, engage and then re-engage with your products using her ORB Media tech. She tells us about a small North Dublin insurance company that was one of the first adopters of the tech and she gives us some incredible stats about usage that are quite stunning. Her software is for big and small businesses. Hear what she can do for any kind of business.

50.00" Caroline McEnery is the HR Suite! Her Kerry and Dublin based company covers all the bases across HR requirements, including fraud investigation, sexual harassment, bullying...and of course, keeping your staff happy. And how do you do that? By asking 'The Right Questions'. Caroline knows so much about this issue that she's written the book about it. We know how busy Team GBS is so we've made it simple for you. In just 15 minutes Caroline explains all. Listen to her, it's the least you could do to keep your staff happy.

71.00" We don't just tell you how to make your business brilliant online, we also find you the talent to make the magic happen for you. Rob Muldowney is co-founder of Covid-Interns, five college graduates who have an unending supply of smart talent across all disciplines, (though the biggest pickup is for marketeers) - students and graduates that want to add experience to their CVs during lockdown and who are willing to offer their services at the right price. They had 400 new people sign up to their database, some coming from the UK, since the start of the year and they've placed candidates as far afield as New York and Singapore, though the vast bulk are working remotely for Irish firms. A great source of talent.

81.00" A tribute to Jimmy Fitzpatrick, RIP, 'the most charming man in Irish business'. An original and huge supporter of TeamGBS he's greatly missed by everyone who ever knew him and his infectious, raucous, laugh.
