Exploring issues that matter to you

Created by CEO and CFO presentation coach Virginia Phillips, and produced by Elisabeth Tuohy (ex-BBC), ‘The Friday Panel’ is a discussion programme analysing and dissecting what is really happening in the world around us. 


It explores the big topics with a fresh perspective, within the new world order exposed during the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown. 


Our esteemed panel guests comprise professionals from SME’s to international corporations who endeavour to give a global perspective on what truly is a momentous time in our history.

Virginia is a brilliant Zoomcaster and host, with plenty of other skills too. She brings calm confidence to presenters and viewers, with clear direction and advice. She takes time to get under the skin of the topic, so everyone has valuable take-aways from the Zoom call (or other video call platform!!)

Nick Edwards Private Equity Turnaround, Mutares 

With reference to TFP:  Outlook for the global economy:

Probably one of the best coronavirus-themed discussions I've seen... well-paced with interesting panel contributions. Thank you.
