Business Live: Sara Hill interview

It’s a challenge to run or to be a co-director of one business or social enterprise. Running four, and multiple projects too, involves a commitment and ability to organise and plan that would be well beyond many of us. After today’s radio show featuring guest Sara Hill, one listener tweeted “You’re an inspiration – can’t get over how much you do Sara.”

Sara joined me in the studio to talk about what’s on at the forthcoming Festival of Debate; publishing Now Then magazine which has been running since 2008; the Peace in the Park free festival; and Mesters Events and their recent trip to the refugee camps in Calais and Dunkirk. A fascinating insight  – do listen to the podcast.
