Migrants Mean Business with George Alagiah – Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou

Migrants Mean Business with George Alagiah is a podcast series from the Migration Museum, in association with Allianz Global Investors, featuring conversations with some of Britain’s most successful business leaders – all of whom have immigrant backgrounds.

Presented by broadcaster and author George Alagiah, each episode explores the personal and professional stories of some of Britain’s most prominent business leaders, offering insights into how they built their businesses, challenges and achievements, and how their backgrounds have influenced their lives and careers. These conversations, and the series as a whole, also serve to highlight the important contributions of migrants to all aspects of British life – a story which, now more than ever, needs to be told.

To kick off our Migrants Mean Business series, we’ve got a cracking conversation with one of the most charismatic and recognisable business leaders of the past few decades – Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou. His conversation with Daniel Franklin, executive and diplomatic editor of The Economist, ranges from shipping to dog walking, suing Netflix to going head to head with Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary.
