For some SMEs COVID-19 presented an opportunity for rapid growth, but like many businesses who experience a surge in demand, there can be a number of growing pains along the way. For Kenneth Leong, Co-Founder and Director of face masks company Meo, the global pandemic saw product demand go through the roof – and managing supply, demand, and logistics proved extremely challenging. For Simon Furness from online meat retailer Hyper Meat the ‘mates helping mates’ mantra inspired an opportunity to combine his existing business with another in a few days – launching a new online platform which generated a stream of demand that they weren’t quite prepared for. Hear how they navigated these challenges by leveraging their networks, motivating their staff, and collaborating with other businesses – and the lessons they learned which are helping position them for long-term, sustainable growth.  The guests featured in this podcast are sharing their own views and experiences.

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
