This is the first Big Business blog which is my personal take on what’s happening to the new and not so new companies and the people behind them. My focus will be on those people who make things happen, and I want to discover why some people win and others lose.
I will also try to identify the business stars of tomorrow, those who in the next couple of years or so will be making headline news in the Financial Times and Wall Street Journal or facing television interviewers on Bloomberg and CNN with the confidence of a veteran CEO.
I will be a reporter again, examining deals and their impact on the marketplace; I will be watching the comings and goings of executives from one company to another and at times I’ll be asking those questions that no one wants to answer.
Business is the greatest game in the world and I am looking foward to being a player again – from the distance of my laptop.
