Vodafone launches ‘Business Unusual’ podcast series with Claudia Winkleman

Vodafone Business launches ‘Business Unusual’, a podcast series to provide tips, advice and inspiration to the business community.

Vodafone has launched ‘Business Unusual’, a weekly podcast series aimed at the start-up and scale-up business community. The podcast will be presented by Strictly Come Dancing presenter and radio personality Claudia Winkleman and will initially run for eight episodes.

Business Unusual will look to inspire start-up and scale-up businesses as the UK navigates through the changes caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The podcast will feature interviews with challenger brands – start-ups and scale-ups who are shaking up their industry and challenging the status quo. Each half hour episode will see presenter Claudia Winkleman speak with a business owner to discuss their approach to dealing with changes and challenges, before and during the Covid-19 crisis.

In the first episode, to air on Tuesday 7 July, Claudia will speak to Freddie Blackett, CEO and Founder of Patch, an online plant shop, about his experience of the Covid outbreak. The company has seen a 500% increase in sales as people flocked online to purchase plants to brighten up their indoor spaces  and gardens during lockdown.

Anne Sheehan, Director, Vodafone Business UK, said:

“Our Business Unusual podcast sets out to support, inspire and champion the small business community who are so vital to the UK economy. We want to highlight those small businesses who have been able to use and adapt their digital capabilities to navigate themselves through the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Now more than ever, our customers are looking to us for solutions so that they can continue to do business. We hope this podcast serves as a valuable resource for insight and tips to inspire others.”

All Business Unusual episodes will be available to listen to and download via the following audio platforms: Acast, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Deezer, Castbox, Pocket Cast, Podcast Addict, Alexa, Doggcatcher, Player FM, Overcast.

Business Unusual podcast presenter Claudia Winkleman said:

“I have always been really interested in new and emerging businesses. These are worrying times for small businesses across the UK, so the Vodafone Business Unusual podcast is the perfect place to learn how entrepreneurs successfully grow their ideas.

“I look forward to speaking to some of the most exciting and disruptive business owners operating in the UK today.”
