This is an edited version of The Business Show on Marlow FM on 23rd December 21, with guests Sarah Furness and Glenn Bolton. Connect with them at https://www.linkedin.com/in/sarahjfurness/ and https://www.linkedin.com/in/simplifyingthecomplicated/respectively.
Having had a fabulous lunch this week at https://www.thehandandflowers.co.uk/I played the first and last tracks on the show for them. The first was The Beatles with “I Want To Hold Your Hand” which you can hear at https://youtu.be/jenWdylTtzs . You can scroll down t see what the last was, or you can try to guess!
I spoke first to Glenn Bolton of The Mill House about what that actually is, and how the pandemic has been both good and bad for a business offering a community experience.
Sarah and I then talk about Well Be It, about mindfulness, and about flying a helicopter into wires with bullets flying over your head – subtly different to the average business challenge, but relevant nonetheless.
“Colours” by Black Pumas was Sarah’s choice of music – she used to fly a Puma helicopter, but chose it mainly to help you to recharge and to put a smile on your face. You can hear a great live version at https://youtu.be/tNAfR4qOZCY to see if it works for you!
Her choice of business news story for us to discuss can be found at https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-afghanistan-conflict-usa-baby-exclusi-idUKKBN2JI0IL but what’s the business angle? Listen in to find out.
Glenn’s music choice was The Rolling Stones with “Gimme Shelter” – if you’re living life on the edge, have a listen at https://youtu.be/RbmS3tQJ7Os .
His choice of business conversation was sparked by the story at https://www.bbc.com/worklife/article/20211214-great-resignation-into-great-reshuffle - people not just changing jobs, but changing their whole way of working, and how they invest that time.
Our final conversation was my choice – you can find it at https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-59900249 - should they keep the money, give it back, or give it away?
So – what’s the “Flowers” song I chose? Hope you like Sandi Thom with “I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker (With Flowers in my Hair)” – have a listen yourself at https://youtu.be/tLyw7jytykE.
