On the programme this week, shareholders & decision-making.
This week we talk to three top business executives about how they deal with the people who own the companies they run. From cocoa growers in Ghana to the big City institutions, what role do shareholders actually play in the businesses they own?

Also on the programme – decision-making. Is there any room in the modern business world for the old-fashioned hunch?

Our guests this week:

Sophi Tranchell
MD, Divine Chocolate

Gavin Slark
CEO, BSS

Andrew Tinkler
CEO, Eddie Stobart
