Emma Carroll, Source’s Head of Content, is joined by Ian Wright, Co-Chair of the Food & Drink Export Council, for the latest episode of our Business Leader’s Voice podcast.  

As we head into 2024, businesses are facing ongoing economic pressures alongside a whole host of new challenges. 

In this podcast, we talk to Ian about where he sees the biggest risks emerging and the opportunities that executives must not miss. He cautions against risk aversion but suggests leaders should be ready to sense check previous decisions around technology, supply chains, and how they plan to hit their net zero targets.

He shares his insight into the following issues and more:  

  • Where businesses will need consulting support in 2024, including around technology, risk, and net zero 
  • The impact of the climate crisis and macroeconomic pressures on supply chains 
  • Operating in a low-growth environment, including the need to prioritise investment 
  • Being thoughtful and ready to adapt if you realise you have made the wrong choices around tech and AI 
  • Rethinking customer choice in the face of today’s supply constraints 
  • How risk management is not fit for purpose in 90% of businesses today.
