Market capitalisation, and mega bucks with the highest valued businesses in the world, lean start ups and the next President of the USA (maybe) all get a mention this week. Topically as Apple and Microsoft battle for the top spot as most valuable business in the world, Amazon and Google are also giving them a run for their money. Tracy takes time to explain the numbers and help us to understand how the Monopoly money figures add up.

  • A reminder for those who need to file a tax return by the January deadline.
  • 360 Degree Networking – 11th December 2018 – Wrexham
  • Brexit What Next? – 12th December 2018 –  Liverpool
