Last night I was invited on to BBC Radio Wales, Wales At Work, to talk to Brian Meechan about the Gig Economy, Uber and Employment. Some good discussion raising some very interesting questions about the future of employment in the UK. Tune in from 14:15!
The UK government-commissioned Hendry review of tidal lagoons has backed the Swansea Bay project - Brian talks to Roger Evans, chair of the Tidal Lagoon Industry Advisory Group, about his hopes for the supply chain and the economy of south-west of Wales. He also talks to global energy lawyer Michelle Davies to get her perspective. 2016 was busy for the business world and that's set to continue this year. Brian and guests discuss what trends we can expect, from artificial intelligence to the so-called "gig" economy. Brian also hears about a project aiming to help would-entrepreneurs set up shop in the evening, and the owner of our business of the week decided to buy a franchise to get her dreams of self-employment off the ground.
