This week on Down to Business: Panti, Gubbeen cheese and chicken soup for the soul

Another jam-packed Saturday morning edition is on the way...

Bobby Kerr is live in studio tomorrow morning and ready to bring you all the latest news, the most interesting business stories around and an eclectic array of guests for two whole hours.

Catch the action on air and online from 10:00am.

Here's what you have to look forward to:

  • Kicking things off as always, we take a look at the stories hitting the front and business pages of the morning's papers. To make sense of the morning's news, Bobby is joined by Alchemy Event Management founder Des Doris.
  • With parents becoming increasingly worried about how safe their kids are online - with children now seeing adult content at an average age of 7 - Graham Mulhern of besecureonline.co.uk talks about his new eBook which provides helpful advice on tackling this very modern issue.
  • Bobby chats knives, sausage and cheese as he visits the amazing, self-sufficient Gubbeen Farm in West Cork.
  • The power of self belief is the chief topic of conversation as the co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul and legendary motivational speaker Jack Canfield joins Bobby for a chat.
  • With the Christmas season more or less upon us, our industry review looks at the people working in the hamper game. To discuss what it's like to run such a seasonally-dependent business and whether that model can be extended into the rest of the year, Bobby meets Hampers & Co managing director Emer Purcell, GiftsDirect.com chief operating officer Fiona O'Carroll and Town & Country Hampers co-founder and director Mary Leahy.
  • The Queen of Ireland makes a Down to Business appearance, as Rory O'Neill – aka Panti Bliss – talks about the changing face of the gay bar and plenty more besides...
  • In this week's executive chair we have Pamela Quinn. The managing director of logistics giant Kuehne + Nagel Ireland, she has just been named as overall winner of the 2016 IMAGE Businesswoman of the Year accolade. 

All this and more on Down to Business with Bobby Kerr from 10am until midday tomorrow.
