Deal-making and the business of climate change are our topics this week.
Most of us have some sort of experience in striking a deal, whether over a house, a job, or maybe just something we bought at a car boot sale. Our guests this week are making deals all the time – to buy companies or property, or to pick up new customers. They tell us about what they look for, their strategies going into negotiations, and how long it usually takes to close the deal.

Also this week, we also look at one of the big issues of our time. Leaving aside for the moment the much-discussed scientific and political implications of climate change, we ask about the effects on business. How will companies make money from global warming? And we don’t just mean by selling ice cream.

Guests:

Charles Alexander
UK National Executive, General Electric

John Hitchcox
Chairman, Yoo Ltd

Jonathan Shopley
Chief Executive, The CarbonNeutral Company
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.
