Episode 53 That Great Business Show, Keavy Ryan & Sean McKeon on SAYE scheme problems, Geraldine Jones, Skin Formulas, Oran Mulvey, Shane O'Sullivan, Glimpse, Roisin Carroll, Carroll Estates

4.00" Keavy Ryan, partner at law firm A&L Goodbody and an Irish Proshare Association (IPSA) board member joins Dalata Hotels company secretary, Sean McKeon to discuss why the withdrawal of Ulster Bank from the Irish market may throw current Save As You Earn Schemes (SAYE) into disarray. They join co-host Susan Spence (founder Softco) in discussing talent attraction and retention problems due to an inadequate share option scheme that does not match a similar UK scheme, available to companies in Northern Ireland.


22.00" Geraldine Jones, founder Skin Formulas, talks about her brand that is sold in Dunnes Stores, Shaws (almost nationwide), Meaghers Pharmacies etc. She has bootstrapped the business herself and she's now hoping to head for the UK market without further investment - unless 'smart money' wants to join her. So how do you take on the might of the big brands (her products are not make up, but nutraceuticals, an important differentiator. Her 'hire in a heartbeat'? Well she chose two (wise woman!). She wants the sectoral knowledge of TeamGBS alumna, Aimee Connolly, as well as the unstinting encouragement of her uncle, also a TeamGBS alumnus, Peter Byrne, CEO of FRS.


39.00" Glimpse software founders Oran Mulvey and Shane O'Sullivan (both 26) entertained us with their youthful enthusiasm as well intriguing us with what could be world beating software to help small and large retailers find out who's shopping with them, in store (they compare their software to Google Analytices for bricks and mortar stores). They're currently raising €2m to help with their assault on the UK market and when (not if!) that's successful, they're heading for the US of A. Just listen to their exuberance. It'll lift your day. Their 'hire in a heartbeat', Werner Vogels, CTO and VP at Amazon.


59.00" Roisin Carroll, Sales and Marketing Manager, Carroll Estates tells us how she works with her dad, her sister, her brother-in-law, and how they keep the peace. Her real reason to be on That Great Business Show was to try to tell the world about their houses for sale in Malahide, Dublin, but they're already selling like hot cakes so we chatted to her about the family business, Japanese toilets and the TV show, Grand Designs. As we say, we do business differently. Roisin's 'hire in a heartbeat'? Helena Morrissey, mother of nine, former boss of Newton Investments and campaigner for greater female presentations on company boards.
