Evan Davis
On this week's Bottom Line Evan Davis and his guests discuss the growth of children's retailing.

This week Evan Davis and his guests will ask why children's retailing has seen such strong growth in recent years - outperforming nearly every other sector on the high street. And how does running a business aimed at children differ from one with an adult consumer base?

And, Sir Digby Jones spent nearly seven years leading the the CBI, before standing down in June. Evan will be asking him and his other guests whether "the voice of business" is just too disparate a group to represent, and if the CBI can still claim to truly reflect the views of modern business.

This is the last programme in this series. The Bottom Line returns on 30 September.
Evan's guests this week are:

Tim Waterstone
Founder of Waterstone's & Executive Chairman of Chelsea Stores (Daisy & Tom and Early Learning Centre)

Lizzie Vann
Founder of Organix

Sir Digby Jones
Former director general, CBI (Confederation of British Industry)

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.
