Five is extending its hugely successful 'Inspector' format with the commission of The Business Inspector, a troubleshooting series transforming failing small companies. Straight-talking, self-made haulage millionnaire, Hilary Devey will take on the title of The Business Inspector tackling struggling small British businesses and transforming them by injecting business sense into their passion projects.
The 4 X 60 minute series has been made by Optomen Television and is sponsored by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC). Presenter Hilary Devey said: "Britain's brimming with creativity but a terrifying number of businesses go bust each year and this shouldn't be happening. I am going to teach businesses how to improve their all round business knowledge and direction, cash flow, marketing strategy and in some cases even their enthusiasm."
Hilary will teach business owners the key skills essential for a thriving business, helping our nation of entrepreneurs keep their dreams alive by getting businesses shipshape and profitable. Five's Head Of Factual Programmes, Andrew O'Connell said: "Hilary is a fantastic new talent for Five and her enthusiasm, expertise and experience make her the ideal presenter to help transform floundering businesses and teach them practical skills."
Optomen's Editor For Factual, Becky Clarke, said: "Hilary Devey is like no other business woman out there. She's an amazing combination of down to earth grit coupled with an extraordinary business mind - for any small business person working with her this will be a life changing experience."
You can catch the first episode of the Business Inspector Wednesday March 10th at 8pm on Five.
