Story 1: The UK is out of recession… but only just

"Figures from the Office for National Statistics reveal the UK economy has climbed out of recession.
GDP was estimated to have increased by 1% in the final quarter of 2012, flattered by the Olympics and Jubilee celebrations, analysts suggest.

The output of service industries was estimated to have increased by 1.3% in the quarter, while construction sector output was estimated to have decreased by 2.5%.

Chancellor George Osborne said: “There is still a long way to go but these figures show we’re on the right track and are a sign the economy is healing."

Story 2: Black cab maker Manganese Bronze calls in administrators

"The taxi firm, Manganese Bronze Holdings, who manufactures the iconic London black cabs, has gone into administration.

PricewaterhouseCoopers have been unofficially named as the administrators for the firm, although this remains unconfirmed by the company.

Manganese Bronze said on Monday that attempts to secure funding to support the company had failed, after it recalled 400 of its TX4 taxis because of a fault with the steering box.

Further sales of the model were halted as a result of the defect, which has been connected to a part manufactured in China.

In a statement earlier this month, the firm said: “The suspension of sales will have a very material and detrimental impact on the Group’s cash flows and the board are working to establish the options available to the business given the impact on working capital.”"

Story 3: Could SME be a smart first move?

"In the current job market, it would be fair to say that the opportunities for graduates remain thin on the ground. As the recovery falters and businesses of all sizes look to get more out of their existing workforce rather than take on new recruits, many graduates are taking jobs that they may not have previously considered, even if it means compromising on their ‘dream career’.

Nowhere are jobs more sought after than at large multinational corporations, where the number of candidates applying for one position can run into the hundreds. It is for this reason that very talented and intelligent graduates are now knocking on the door of small and medium sized businesses (SMBs)."

Also on the show this week we find out why people leave the 9 to 5? Plus we talk about what it is like to be a woman in the modern business world.

This week we are joined in the studio by Alison Davies of Danusha plus Tom Keighley (Editor) and Si Bales (MD) of, the UK’s fast growing business network.
