Evan Davis asks his guests about their personal style of management. Does the TV image of the short-tempered, blunt-speaking boss reflect what goes on in the boardroom? PY Gerbeau, chief executive of X-Leisure and the man who saved Disneyland Paris and the Millennium Dome, admits to shouting sometimes, while David Roche, president of Hotels.com, can't remember the last time he raised his voice. And John McLaren, an investment banker turned thriller writer, recalls how different the Japanese business style is from the UK and US way of doing things.

Also, Evan asks his guests whether discounting really gives people a better deal.
