The Bottom Line - Series 2 - Episode 6

The view from the top of business. Presented by Evan Davis, the Bottom Line cuts through confusion, statistics and spin to present a clearer view of the business world, through discussion with people running leading and emerging companies. You're at the top of your company but you are the person with least control over your time. PAs, PRs, your spouse - all these people are battling over your diary. So can you, when you are a chief executive, carve out a piece of the day for yourself or are you at the mercy of others from the moment you get up? Evan Davis discusses this with his three big business guests: Nikki King of Isuzu Trucks, Samir Brikho of AMEC and Gavin Slark of the BSS Group. He also finds out how possible it is to plan for the long term when everyone is pressurising you for short-term results.
