Bobby Kerr might be taking a well-deserved break but Down To Business is set to be as jam-packed as ever, with the Sunday Business Post's Jack Horgan-Jones taking the reins this Saturday morning.

Here's what we have lined-up:

  • As per usual we kick things off with a review of the newspapers. Joan Mulvihill, CEO of the Irish Internet Association, will be joining Jack to look at the stories hitting the front pages and making an impact in the business section
  • Down To Business producer John Fardy hits the floor and works on his core as he takes a look at the business of pilates at Live & Breathe Pilates on Camden Row, Dublin 8.
  • The head of Uber Ireland, Kieran Harte, talks about the future of taxis.
  • Getting niche, our industry review will look at businesses that are slightly left of centre. From tea shops to sex shops, we're going alternative. Joining Jack will be Shauna Scott, owner of Sex Siopa; Anthony White, manager of Gurman’s Tea Shop in Stephen’s Green; and, from Dublin Comic Con, Nick Di Maio of RAGE Record Art Game Emporium.
  • We take a stroll through The Liberties, to look at the thriving business scene in the famous Dublin 8 area. Gerry Macken, the CEO of the Digital Hub and Teeling Whiskey Distillery MD Jack Teeling will be opening up about the future of business near the city centre.
  •  In the Executive Chair, we have the CEO of ESB International, Ollie Brogan, talking about the ESB's overseas expansion plans and being part of Dublin and Mayo GAA Royalty.

All this and more on Down to Business from 10am until midday tomorrow morning, on air and online.
