Mr Hester is stepping down at the end of the year – forced out, as some see it, by the Treasury. He and Mr Balls shared a stage this week at the West Yorkshire branch of the Institute of Directors, where we caught up with him.

Also in the programme:

• Is Trinity Leeds driving growth, or sucking it out of the rest of the city?

• How to manage your firm’s reputation online.

• Why tele-health is bigger business than ever.

Digital Editor David Behrens is joined in the studio by the Yorkshire Post’s deputy business editor Greg Wright. BusinessTalk will return for a new series after a summer break.
