    Ulster Bank recently started its new Thrive in the New World business podcast examining how businesses can adapt to rapidly changing circumstances in Northern Ireland. In its latest episode, host Sarah Travers spoke to Ann McGregor, CEO of the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Ulster Bank's own NI Chief Economist Richard Ramsey.

    While many businesses are seeing the pandemic as a major challenge, Sarah talked about both the challenges and new opportunities for local business. The episode focused on Northern Ireland’s economic prospects in the short term over the coming months and what things might look like in the years ahead.

    Speaking in the epsiode, Ulster Bank's Richard Ramsey said: "It has been an incredible period for the economy and there are trends that everyone in the business community needs to understand. It has been great to discuss some of these issues with Sarah and Ann and I hope businesses find the discussion useful and interesting."

    "We have all adapted our daily lives in some way and the same is true for businesses and their owners," explained Series host Sarah Travers. "On high streets and in industrial parks across Northern Ireland the business community has been working hard to adapt and to put in place practical measures to help us all to get back to business. Some are using their expertise and resources to help fellow businesses and other parts of society to reopen safely, and others are adapting their premises and services to cater for the consumer’s needs – all are adapting."
