He talks about starting his first of many ventures at the tender age of 9. He shares his business philosophies including his beliefs in virtues over values and how he sees experience as being over rated.
An insightful chat with Paschal Donohoe, Minister for Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform.  A rare insight into the man behind the role.  He talks about his private sector experience, early setbacks in politics, parallels between the public and private sectors, the importance of rhythm and agility within the institution of Government along with his 50 year vision for Ireland.  
An open and honest chat with international rugby legend Brian O’Driscoll.  We discuss topics including confidence, leadership and what world class teamwork means to him.  Five years on we look at the void that retiring from playing created and his desire to continue to push himself outside his comfort zone in both business and punditry.
