Showcasing YOUR business expertise LIVE on Radio

9th October 2014 Knowing Your Business Radio Show

On this Knowing Your Business radio show we explore failure. It’s a bit expensive isn’t it? Or is it a learning opportunity that should be embraced? After all, not every business gets everything right first time. It could be a product launch that failed to gain traction. Not acting on a good idea only to see a competitor take it forward. Or simply exploring the possibility that something may work. Or not.

People skills expert, author, trainer, and regular guest show presenter Julie Cooper, seeks the answers.

Our radio show guests are Joanne Henson, Riz Wasti and David Lindo



Listen to Knowing Your Business live on Radio Horton.

The show is broadcast live on Thursdays between 10:00 am and 12:00 noon.

This show live broadcast podcasts are now available further down the page.

Riz Wasti Chartered Management Accountant

Riz came into being from a very different route than most practice Accountants and he believes that their unique background has given them the chance to really appreciate the difference that industry finance experience can offer a small business.

In 2009, founder Riz Wasti realised that while many accounting practices have been a high street presence for decades, they lack practical hands-on experience within clients businesses. Riz developed the idea of creating accessible finance systems & procedures for small organisations of all backgrounds and sought to build a team that could provide this expertise. Riz named this new practice 2E Accountants as in Efficient & Effective Accountants.

The police were called and a search party dispatched and he was eventually found standing outside a graveyard watching some Magpies.

He never switch’s off when it comes to urban birding, David is forever on the lookout. If you saw him strolling down a street you’d think he was in Manhattan for the first time, gazing up in wonderment. The sky is his canvas and it’s amazing what you can see when you look up; birds of prey, swirling swifts, migrating thrushes, raucous crows. It’s a beautiful world up there.

His main passion is for urban birds and spends his time doing as much as he can to promote the appreciation and conservation of the birds that share our city lives.

Through his TV appearances, writing, talks and tours he trys to inspire people to re-look at their urban environments. David believes wildlife in urban areas is so easy to engage with.
