Episode 83: 19th September 2019

Jamie Oliver, the Rugby World Cup and food allergy guidance and the role of the Non Executive Director (NED) make for a pucker blend of business chat this week.

Have you ever wondered what the title of NED actually means? This week we take a look at the opportunities such a role presents and how to go about finding the right position for yourself.

Because we love a good acronym we also flag up the Institute of Directors (IOD) as a fantastic resource for training, guidance and some wonderfully useful factsheets on all aspects of business. Well worth a look and Tracy makes reference to Workplace For Business a new offering from Facebook which provides a modern day intranet on steroids.

If you are in the food business you might be interested in this food allergy menu tester called menugide.pro which checks your menu for allergens so you don’t have to.

And finally, a man, once famous for being naked and in recent months almost more famous for the radical closure of a chain of his eponymous restaurants, we try to get into the mindset of Jamie Oliver, MBE. With several officer roles to his name he’s clearly as much a marketing machine as a meal maker and that adds to the charm of his story.

Tracy found a great quote which seems to demonstrate his level of self awareness in amongst all the money, mahem and mozzarella.

“Don’t forget that my day job’s doing ‘jazz hands’ and making content for television and books. I can’t do everything.”
