Here is a link to a 12 episode series published by the Times and the Times Online. In the series, they interview 13 influential business figures from a wide range of sectors as they explain an idea that they think is fundementally changing the way we do business today. Although some episodes were published as long ago as 2007, most are still relevant and though provoking. The Times now charge for their content, so I found that these episodes sometimes download from Podcast Directory, and at other times don’t….
