  • Why I’m stumped by ECB decision | TheBusinessDeskblog.com
    be snubbed in such a way so soon after its massive facelift is nothing short of disgraceful What message this sends out to other grounds considering investing in new facilities beggars belief As a cricket fan who has attended virtually every test match staged by the ground since 1979 with the sad exception of the 2005 Ashes when I couldn t get a ticket I find the decision particularly disappointing However looking at it in a professional capacity I also find it difficult to justify financially Edgbaston now has a capacity of around 25 000 making it the largest ground outside London The recent test match against India played to capacity crowds over four days and brought in revenues in excess of 3m An Ashes test match could confidently match if not exceed this so the ECB is effectively denying itself a major revenue stream by opting to stage the match at a ground with a smaller capacity When cricket faces so much competition from other sports why deny yourself a money making opportunity It just makes no sense Share and Enjoy Comments 1 Richard Smith says September 23 2011 at 4 46 pm The reality of the situation is that there are now 9 test grounds looking to secure 5 Ashes test matches where historically it was 6 chasing 5 With the two London test venues guaranteed 2 of the 5 tests it is effectively 7 grounds chasing the remaining 3 tests The ECB are simply looking to maximise revenues and minimise risk through the bidding process it has little to do with the merits of say Cardiff v Edbaston as a venue rather than who bids most upfront The fact that Edgbaston misses out in 2013 should therefore be no real suprise nor should it be regarded as

  • Why ‘business as usual’ is a fatal response to Birmingham’s riots | TheBusinessDeskblog.com
    experience of the altruistic instinct of thousands of people around the country because I am a member of the family whose burnt out business in Croydon became one of the many symbols of that awful week in August I mentioned on Twitter my shock at seeing the family furniture store House of Reeves burning to the ground marking the low point in a 144 year history I was immediately inundated with thousands of goodwill messages that over a number of days then turned into offers of financial and practical help I passed these on to my extended family and they have been tremendously buoyed up by the support as they work to rebuild the business But a nagging concern has been building up in my mind over the past ten days or so that while the riots and looting were on the whole outpourings of criminality rather than social protest we re deluding ourselves if we think we can leave it to the courts and police alone to ensure it doesn t happen again I think the riots should be a wake up call to everyone but especially those of us in Birmingham s business community that the city s problems are real and they re not going to go away unless we all as individuals stand up to our civic responsibilities in a completely new way I ve articulated this rather passionately I m afraid in a personal blog titled Why business as usual is a fatal response to Birmingham s riots I don t pull any punches and you may think I m being overly critical of the excellent CSR programmes that many firms pursue but if you do please let me have your thoughts The blog post has already stimulated some debate and is leading to a

  • Jeremy Hunt’s field of dreams | TheBusinessDeskblog.com
    hearing some very passionate and well argued views aired at the summit I have to say my two main worries over local TV remain They are Obsolescence Jeremy Hunt admitted that the long term future is TV over the internet which makes TV signals via aerials obsolete and you no longer need a process to allocate spectrum and licences etc Why then invest in all the complex and costly engineering to deliver local TV terrestrially when we won t need it after five years or so Revenue Hunt is admirably refusing to prescribe exactly what business models and structures should deliver local TV but says the average station will turn over around 500k a year This would deliver basic TV services with around two hours per day of unique content Debra Davies boss of City TV one of the groups hoping to win the Birmingham local TV licence says her station would deliver far far more with several hours of news business content cultural coverage and local sport and would therefore cost a lot more But Birmingham is a big city and offers more opportunities for advertising sponsorship and even product placement she says First year revenues would be around 3m in the first year and more than twice that after 12 months DCMS says the evidence is that this would be new revenue stimulated by the very arrival of a local TV station and wouldn t cannibalise existing local advertising budgets When challenged with the fact that local and regional advertising spend across TV radio and newspapers have been in freefall for years proponents claim all of this has gone to Google and is just waiting to be enticed back by local TV I m staggered at this mix of wrong headed assumptions and extraordinarily naive optimism Most local advertising lost by newspapers to Google and the web generally consists of job and car classified ads that can t transfer to TV and I question where former regional TV advertisers will suddenly find the budgets for new local services In my view City TV will sooner find the Holy Grail than 7m of new revenues in the Birmingham advertising market Of course if the revenue forecasts are right but the size of the local advertising cake is finite then local TV can thrive only at the expense of existing local media This will of course lead to a further decline in local radio and newspapers and the government s aspiration to help local media generally to thrive will have a net benefit of precisely zero So do I think Jeremy Hunt s field of dreams is a busted flush Not completely There will always be a demand for TV like services but the current approach despite nodding towards the TV online future is so firmly rooted in old models that it smacks of a re enactment society trying to recapture the TV glory days The proposed transition model wedded to old transmitters spectrum allocation and regulatory obligations takes the

    in the sector this year including Siemens choosing Hull as home for a wind turbine manufacturing operation and the green light for the Humber Gateway wind farm But the Government s approval of Drax s plans to build a biomass power station at its existing site and another at Immingham underlines the economic reality behind the move to a low carbon energy future While Ministers have approved the construction of the power stations Drax will rightly sit on its hands until it can be sure what level of subsidy will be available for biomass energy Three carbon capture and storage projects from Yorkshire including the Don Valley Power Project saved by 2Co Energy earlier this year are currently waiting to see if they will receive a share of EU funding While the range and size of the green energy projects taking shape in Yorkshire hold tremendous promise for the region s economy the reality is they are still at a developmental stage where they are heavily dependent on state support of one kind or another That means their success relies heavily on decisions taken by politicians in Westminster and Brussels and as such it would be foolish for Yorkshire to pin its hopes too heavily on green energy when it comes to the future of the regional economy While renewables offer exciting possibilities there are many other sectors with the potential to deliver quicker benefits to the region that also deserve support Share and Enjoy Comments 1 チャコ sandal says October 9 2013 at 2 06 am モカシン 通販 Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Name required Mail will not be published required Website Submit Comment Search Recent Posts Jaguar Land Rover the new industrial saviour Positive outlook makes refreshing change at The Business of the Economy Why

    zones and the imminent conclusion of the second round of the regional growth fund represent a significant moment for LEPs They are moving from bodies that plan and theorise to bodies that do and business will want to see signs they can now turn talk into action Now is the moment when LEPs must start to demonstrate they can make a difference Their limited resources means their financial punch will never be as heavy as their RDA predecessors but however narrow the focus of their plans and however limited in scale LEPs must start to show they can help real businesses to grow The next 12 months will either establish LEPs as a credible feature of the regional economic landscape or damn them as an empty Government gesture Share and Enjoy Comments 3 Merchant Cash Advance says June 5 2013 at 1 25 am Hi I found your blog the usage of ask That is a nicely created document I am going to you should definitely bookmark the idea and come time for discover more of your respective information Was looking for submit Let me surely return David McCauley says September 3 2013 at 11 39 am The abolition of Regional Development Agencies saved a lot of wasted money and got rid of some pernicious bureaucracies which had no idea about business and enterprise The LEDs are a pale imitation of the RDAs and should be scrapped If government confined itself to sorting out bank funding to SMEs and getting rid of red tape and local authorities confined themselves to cutting local red tape then business people could get on with it We need to create a business friendly environment not tinker about with futile initiatives local lighthouse review says July 25 2014 at 8 18 pm That you ensure
