As usual, Graeme Logan has a fantastic show lined up for us this week. Here’s a snapshot of what’s to come:

Nick Pickles

Director of Big Brother Watch

Big Brother Watch is an organisation that aims to defend civil liberties and protect privacy.

Graeme will talking to Nick Pickles about the organisation’s recent campaigns.

Deborah Leary

Chairwoman of the British Association of Women Entrepreneurs

Voted as one of Britain’s Top 100 Women Entrepreneurs by Real Business Magazine in 2009, Deborah Leary OBE is considered to be one of the most motivational and entrepreneurial women of our time.

Government figures estimate a potential £42 billion economic windfall if the UK had the same level of female entrepreneurship as the US. Today sees the launch of a nationwide drive to encourage female entrepreneurs to apply for a new business support programme provided by Wayra.

Women constitute only 29 per cent of the self-employed workforce in the UK, that’s undoubtedly a huge missed opportunity. The Government is already taking steps to inspire female entrepreneurship which is extremely encouraging but more can and should be done.
