Down to Business is live tomorrow morning and, as ever, Bobby Kerr has a jam-packed show in store.

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

Here's what you have to look forward to:

  • Kicking things off, we'll peruse the papers, looking at the front pages and finding out what’s making a big impact in the business pages. Joining us this week will be comedian and media trainer Alan Shortt.
  • Gina Quinn, the CEO of the Chamber of Commerce, recalls how her MBA from Smurfit was the making of her and how we can keep Dublin on the business map.

  • Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards, famous for his ‘heroic failure’ as an Olympic ski jumper (now in a cinema near you), will deliver a keynote address on self-belief and following your dreams at next week’s Small Firms Association Annual National Conference. Before that, he tells Bobby about life on and off the big slope.

  • In our Motoring Mailbag, with thanks to Toyota, motoring correspondent Geraldine Herbert will answer your car-related questions.

  • Counting down to the EY Entrepreneur of the Year retreat in Boston and marking the fact that there's a record number of nominees doing business in the US, we’re at Ireland Day in the Plaza Hotel, Blanchardstown, to look at opportunities for transatlantic trade. Kevin McLoughlin, Head of Tax and Partner Lead of the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year programme, joins us for the discussion, as do two nominees in the Emerging category – Ciara Clancy, CEO of Beats Medical, and Plotbox founders Sean and Leona McAllister.

  • John Teeling, founder of the world-famous and award-winning Cooley Distillery joins Bobby to talk about his career and why, having sold that business to Jim Beam for a whopping $95million in 2012, he can't help but be involved in the whiskey business.

  • Also sitting down for an in-depth discussion with Bobby is Stephen Vernon. The chairman of Green Property, Vernon is known as one of coolest heads in the Irish property game and has been nominated in the Industry category of the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Awards this year.

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

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