(1.23) Business commentator Bernard Hickey joins Andrew Patterson for a year in review as we look at some of the highs and lows of the business year. (10.34) Mike Taylor from Pie Funds reviews the week and the year on the markets. (14.41) We hear from Pushpay co-founder Chris Heaslip following a sharp selloff in the company’s share price over the last month which led to the company receiving a “please explain” notice from the NZX this week. (20.59) Andrew's feature guest this week is certainly the man of the moment and someone who probably should be named as business leader of the year. He speaks to low profile Sistema founder Brendan Lindsay who this week sold his Auckland plastics manufacturing business for $660 million making it one of the largest private trade sales in recent times. We hear his remarkable story of what it took to build a global business from scratch despite leaving school at the age of 15 with no formal qualifications.
