As a nation we always seem to punch well above our weight and that was no different this week when it was announced that six Irish business people were named in Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe list. One man who can take at least a little credit for the success of the next generation of Irish entrepreneurs is co-founder of the ‘Junior Entrepreneur Programme’, Jerry Kennelly. Jerry has spent the last 13 years turning the classroom into the boardroom helping over 100,000 Irish children start businesses - he joins Bobby to discuss.
For any leader, be it in the field of business, the military, or any professional organization, knowing how to lead and what style will work best for you and your team can often be the biggest hurdle. Neil Jurd is a global expert in leadership development and author of ‘The Leadership Book’ - he joins Bobby to discuss.
It's St Patrick’s Day weekend, Johnny Sexton going for the all-time record of points scored in the championship, his last home game, and last 6 Nations game, and the team is vying for a first-ever Grand Slam decider in Dublin - it couldn’t get any bigger than this. Ireland will be lining out against England later on today and the eyes of the nation will be watching. Ireland and Munster Rugby Legend, Marcus Horan joins Bobby to discuss.

Just under 30,000 house completions were conducted in 2022 - a figure widely considered to be significantly short of the average level required to meet housing demand, never mind make up for the lack of completions in previous years. And with the recent decision to lift the ban on evictions this week, what exactly can we expect in 2023 and beyond for our beleaguered property market? Joining Bobby is: · Brendan McGee, Managing Director of Franklins in Donegal · Clement Herron of Clement Herron Real Estate, Portlaoise · Louise Kenny, Director of Lisney Sotheby's International Realty based in Dublin
Bobby speaks to Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic, author of 'Storytelling with Data: A Data Visualization Guide for Business Professionals'. Together they discuss how data visualization can help you better communicate through the power of storytelling and the way to make data a pivotal point in your story.
