This week on Down to Business: the Irish CEO of Qantas, awful presentations, supercars & charities

We have a lot to get through on Saturday morning...

The latest edition of Down to Business hits the air from 10am tomorrow and Bobby Kerr is primed and ready with a typically jam-packed show.

Here is what's on the agenda:

  • Kicking things off as usual, we’ll be taking a look at what's making the front pages and business pages of the morning's newspapers. Joining Bobby this week will be Stephen O'Leary, MD of social media and online media monitoring and analysis company Olytico.
  • Giving a presentation can be a daunting thing indeed, with the potential for disaster never far away. What can you do to nail it, then? Luckily, Barry Brophy, a lecturer in communications in UCD has written books and blogs and the very topic and he'll be sharing his knowledge on the show.
  • Bobby visits the Grand Old Lady of Stephen's Green - the Shelbourne Hotel - to meet concierge Denis O'Brien and get an insight into giving guests the ultimate welcome.
  • Oisin Browne will be talking about his new book, The Binman’s Guide to Marketing.
  • The business of opticians is in the spotlight as three Don Stack, owner of Optical Rooms; Diarmuid Keane,  owner of Keensight and President of Eyezone; and PJ Timmins, a director of Mairead O’Leary Opticians, open up.
  • Alan Bannon, the man behind Cannonball Ireland, will be in studio to talk about the charity event that sends supercar enthusiasts on a roadtrip around Ireland.
  • In this week's Executive Chair is the Tallaght man who heads up one of the world's largest and safest airlines. Alan Joyce, CEO of Qantas, talks low costs and high altitude. 

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