Evan Davis
This week we’re talking about shop refits and time management.
When you walk down the street, it may seem that each shop falls into one of three categories: those that have just been done up, those that are being refurbished, and those that could really use a facelift.

On this week’s programme we talk to some of the biggest names in retailing to find out a bit more about the logic of shop refits. Is the job ever done, or is it more like painting the Forth Bridge, a never-ending task that only gets you right back where you started?

Also on the programme, we’re discussing time management. How do three busy executives handle their diaries … or is it a case of having their diaries handled for them? Listen as Evan and his guests try to make the most of every second.

Our guests this week:

Dawn Gibbins
Chief Executive, Flowcrete

Hugh Harvey
Managing Director, Comet

Jón Ásgeir Jóhannesson
Executive Chairman, Baugur Group
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.
