This week on Taking Stock with Mandy Johnston:

Energy and consumer prices are surging with major disruptions in the global supply chain which has seen inflation on the rise. Nick Bullman, Founder, and Chairman of CheckRisk joins Mandy to go through what this might mean for Ireland's, and the global, economic recovery post-Covid.

When we think of the tourist industry in Ireland, we tend to think of leisure tourism where people come for a holiday, but business tourists travel in order to attend international conferences and corporate meetings, making it a highly specialised and lucrative sector. Mandy was joined by Sam Johnston, Manager of Ireland's Convention Bureaux & Catherine Kalamidas, Account Manager, Rotterdam Partners Convention Bureau to discuss Ireland’s potential.

Also, in the wake of the pandemic, UK companies have been given the opportunity to benefit from a government scheme - The Future Fund - to support those facing financing difficulties and is being delivered via the British Business Bank. Joining Mandy to discuss is Chris Cook from the Financial Times.
