A busy programme again this week on the Bottom Line as the dust settles after a hectic weekend spent at Kilkenomics, the annual orgy of economic analysis, prognostication and prescription mixed with comedy, sociability and fun. Phew.

 

Anyway, back to basics. Tom Molloy covered a wide range of topics this week. Some positive corporate news from DCC and Ryanair; the spat over the Government’s difficulty over bank pensions; the US election and likely impacts on business; the Gathering and Aer Arann pulling out of Waterford Airport.

Then we were joined in studio by Mary Cullen of Insight HR about an event for business owners and managers as well as HR practitioners called “Adjusting for the Future”.
