My Bottom Line: Julie White, D-Drill

Help

Julie White is the managing director of the drilling and demolition firm D-Drill.

She faced a 40% drop in turnover in the first six months after taking over the company but has used the recession to reshape the business and prepare it for growth.

She tells the programmes: "Don't put your head in the sand, look into contracts, productivity and health and safety - and make everything work as well as it can to fit the model of the company that it is."

Julie appeared on The Bottom Line which is broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and BBC World Service. Listen again via the download or watch it on the BBC News Channel.
