Presented by Stephanie Flanders.

Stephanie's top executive guests hail from the worlds of mobile energy, sanitary fittings and business services. They discuss how businesses cope in a 'slow growth' environment. Could years of slow growth be more challenging than a short sharp shock?

Not so long ago, the slow coach economy in Europe was Germany - and now it's steaming ahead of everyone. What's gone right for Germany, and what lessons could other countries learn?

Stephanie is joined in the studio by Rupert Soames, chief executive of mobile energy group, Aggreko; Neal Gandhi, chief executive of international business services company Quickstart Global; and David Haines, chief executive of German bathroom fittings company Grohe. Show less
