Bobby Kerr is live in studio this Saturday morning, kickstarting your weekend with an eclectic array of business guests for two whole hours.

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

Here's what you have to look forward to:

  • We get underway with a look at the stories hitting the front and business pages of the morning's papers. Bobby is joined in studio by Dearbhail McDonald, group business editor for Independent News & Media
  • An expert in matching classic fashion with the fast-paced nature of modern commerce, James Loftus talks about his Kim Kardashian-approved Open For Vintage online boutique business.
  • Lisa Quinlan, owner of The Rolling Donut, opens up about the artisan eatery that has been appealing to Dublin's sweet tooth since 1978.
  • Researchers have found that willpower is a better predictor of life and work success than IQ. Ros Taylor, a psychologist, executive coach and author, tells Bobby how you can get some of that special drive and application for yourself.
  • Ahead of The Hardware Show 2017 hitting the RDS Simmonscourt on March 5th and 6th, Bobby meets some very handy people indeed for this week's industry review. Mark Lenehan, co-owner and ecommerce director with Lenehan's on Capel Street; John Burke, general managing director of Burke's Hardware & DIY; and Rachel Reddin, general manager of Kelly's Homevalue discuss the trade in detail.
  • Elite chef Patrick Guilbaud on the pressures of – and pride he takes in – maintaining Ireland's only restaurant with two Michelin stars.
  • The husband and wife team of Kira and Mark Walton are our Business People of the Month – considering their Voya company has managed to make money out of seaweed, they're certainly deserving of the accolade...

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

As ever, you can find blog posts and weekly DTB highlights on our show page.
