Big Sofa announces Aim flotation - CEO Simon Lidington discusses the company's strategy
Big Sofa, a technology company of just over thirty people, is preparing to float on Aim, the debut investment market, and may begin trading next week. The founders apparently started the business seven years ago travelling the UK, interviewing consumers to get some insight into customer behaviour. They quizzed people on a large inflatable sofa, and videoed the results, believing the insights they got were better than those from more conventional research. But it was all a bit laborious transcribing the content, so today Big Sofa uses clever software that mines all the info. Simon Lidington, CEO of Big Sofa, joined Share Radio to discuss.

What can we learn from how Flying Tiger Copenhagen trade?
There are only eleven shopping days left until Christmas and it's already apparent who some of the winners and losers might be on our high streets. But if the queues around their stores are anything to do by, one of the festive winners may be Flying Tiger Copenhagen, until recently known as Tiger. Flying Tiger stores sell everyday home and kitchenware, stationery and toys, often with a Scandinavian design twist. The first UK store was in Basingstoke, and now the company counts 80 stores in the country, 600 stores across 29 countries. What can we learn from how they trade? Philip Bier heads Tiger’s business in the south-east of England, and he joined Share Radio to discuss.
