Perfect start to the day

Peter has so much experience and it shows in his podcasts. They are a must for starting my day right and I just read the daily newsletter later on in the day when I find the time to finish my day off!

Excellent - if you want to improve your commercial awareness look no further

This podcast is an excellent accompany to the Watson Daily newsletter. It goes into detail about the most important news stories of the day and explains its importance in the form of a dialogue.

I would recommend this podcast and the Watson Daily generally to anyone wanting to improve their financial and business understanding - it has already helped me immensely.
