Hear our academics offer expert opinions on BBC Radio WM

Posted on Thursday 26th September 2013

Two Birmingham Business School academics have recently featured on local radio station BBC WM, commenting on current issues.

Dr Pamela Robinson featured yesterday afternoon, discussing news that discount grocery chain Aldi has seen sales grow by a record-breaking pace in the UK over the summer, as well as the topic of quality produce at cheaper prices.

This morning, Professor Simon Collinson was interviewed about business confidence in the Midlands. Simon commented that whilst it is great news that confidence is high, exports are not up by as much as hoped, so regional firms are not yet competing effectively in overseas markets such as China.

Both interviews are only available for a limited time.
