Episode 63 That Great Business Show - Mark Henry, In Fact, an optimists guide to Ireland - Dr. Lollie Mancey, Imposter Syndrome - Paula FitzSimons, Going for Growth programme

2.00" Mark Henry, author of 'In Fact, an optimists guide to Ireland' tells us 100 reasons to be positive about Ireland and its economy. And he starts by telling us we're no longer a nation of begrudgers. What would Brendan Behan make of that! He'd also be fascinated by the substantial drop in alcohol consumption over the last couple of decades.

Mark's 'hire in a heartbeat'? Bob Geldof


23.00" Dr. Lollie Mancey, who is 'not fragile like a flower, but fragile like a bomb', talks about women being underrepresented in business, what the UCD Innovation Academy where she works, is doing to help, Imposter Syndrome and what can be done about that, and of course she has a 'hire in a heartbeat' or two, or three...


47.00" Paula FitzSimons, founder of Going for Growth, the Enterprise Ireland and KPMG backed six month course to help female entrepreneurs 'go for growth'. It's been running for fourteen years and has proven to be exceptionally positive for participants, many who have joined TeamGBS since the podcast started. Paula details how best to get on the programme and she reminds listeners that the closing date is coming up very soon.

Her 'hire in a heartbeat'? She wouldn't say. Find out why.
