New Series from BBC World News

Escape from the Boardroom - NEW SERIES (6-parts)
Premiering Saturday, September 21, 2013 – 5:10 pm ET

The business world has changed immeasurably over the past decade and thanks to globalisation, the competition in most sectors is tougher. In order to stay ahead, today’s CEOs have to be multi-skilled visionaries, capable of seeing the big picture as well as understanding the details that may trip up the organisation. In order to do that effectively, there’s no substitute for getting out and about and experiencing their business at the sharp end. 

In the new, weekly five-part series, Escape from the Boardroom, CEOs are given a corporate workout: a series of challenges that gets them out of the office to explore their organisation, their staff, their customers and the competition. From Spyker cars, a luxury European car manufacturer, to Semsom, a leading middle-eastern restaurant chain, each of our company CEOs will have to deliver their findings to the staff. Is their business in good shape to tackle today’s global challenges? Or will it be a case of out of the boardroom and back to the drawing board?
