Business is booming
THERE’S a new girl in town, and she means business!
I am, of course, referring to the appointment of The Star’s own award-winning columnist Jo Davison, who has accepted my challenge to liven up our business coverage.
We pride ourselves on making sure we’re holding business leaders to account, whist showcasing to the rest of the country and beyond just how big a player in global economics Sheffield really is.
But between the bricks of business is its mortar - the people - and Jo has made her intentions clear from the start of her tenure: Star Business will be about companies’ biggest asset - the people.
And today I genuinely believe she has delivered, under the watchful eye of our newly promoted Business Editor David Walsh.
So if you might ordinarily think: ‘Oh that business stuff is a bit starchy for me, I’m not going to bother,’ then think again and get your nose into the Business Monthly pages.
If you’re one of the people who avidly follows business news, and loves to snoop around that particular section of the paper, then I hope you’ll agree its revamp brings it bang up to date with what readers want. And please, let us know what you think!
