In a year when so many businesses have been rocked financially by Covid, the charity sector has rather unexpectedly thrived. From the small, local to the huge and well known, charities across the country have been forced to come up with new and often rather chilly ways to raise money.

Joining Ella and Richard in studio is Denise Charlton, CEO of The Community Foundation for Ireland, which has given over €75million in grants to 5,000 organisations over the past 21 years.

All sectors must try and think to the future, yet it's easier for some more than others. Many have seen this as opportunity to reshape workplace culture using technology, others can reimage their business model, but there are those who must wait in hope. Later in the show, we explore some of those businesses, and take a look at future proofing – how businesses can prepare for a world post-pandemic.

This week we feature Huku Balance, a Donegal business giving surfers some balance on land.

And finally, we speak with Sinead McSweeney VP, Public Policy at Twitter EMEA and MD of Twitter Dublin, about the future of the workspace.
