Evan Davis
Presented by Evan Davis, the guests this week talk about the financial markets, how the World Cup is going to affect business and if happiness at work can improve profit margins.
Over the last few weeks, the money markets have shown plenty of volatility, and while we hear that one minute shares are up, and then they're down, should we care? How much does a share price really reflect the value of a business?

Evan also wants to know if there's such a thing as 'World Cup Effect'...how does business fare when there's a major sporting event on?

And as the guests are all employers, how important is happiness? Are they working hard to improve the GWB - or General Well Being - of their staff?

Evan's guests this week are:

Greg Dyke
chairman of Brentford FC and Hit productions, former head of the BBC

Nicola Horlick
CEO of Bramdean Asset Mangement

Claire Owen
MD of StopGap Recruitment
About the programme
 
The Bottom Line cuts through the confusion of modern life to find out what's really important to consumers and businesses: the gimmicks, the people, the products - and the relationships.
