Businesses are 'sleepwalking' into disaster as Brexit approaches
Businesses are 'sleepwalking' into disaster as Brexit approaches. That's according to new data from the Cranfield School of Management and the British Standards Institution - that safeguards standards in business. They also found less than one-third of CEOs were confident of leading their firms to long term success. The report argues companies aren't taking enough risks because of 'rigid' ways of thinking. James Brydges spoke to Howard Kerr, CEO of the British Standards Institution.

This is Money: Pension blues
Welcome to the This is Money Show on Share Radio, brought to you in partnership with NS&I. Retirement just got more complicated this week with proposals put forward to raise the state pension age to 70 whilst further question marks hang over the triple lock.

Saving up anything for retirement also got more challenging this week though with the latest inflation statistics. A temporary peak or will the Bank of England finally move on interest rates? Answering all this and more Georgie Frost is joined by Editor Simon Lambert and Consumer Affairs Editor Lee Boyce. Also this week we find out how banks and cheques are getting a 21st Century upgrade.
