April 14th, 2015

Episode 277 of 1333 episodes

The satire How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying is being revived. The cautionary tale set in 60s New York charts the meteoric rise of a window cleaner to Chairman of the board and can be seen at this year’s City of London Festival. What can a satire on the business world from a half century ago - sending up nepotism, sexism and mediocrity – teach us today? Paul Gudgin is director of City of London Festival and Lucy Kellaway is a Financial Times columnist.
