Assessment Day Presentation - Economic Crisis - Whitbread Finance Scheme


Hi everyone

I have an assessment day for Whitbread Finance Scheme (owners of Premier Inn, Costa Coffee, various pub restaurants etc) this Friday and have asked to prepare a Powerpoint presentation on the following:

‘Given the current economic climate, what challenges do you think this presents for an organisation like Whitbread and how might the Finance teams work with the rest of the business to tackle these challenges?’

If anyone has any ideas I would be very grateful…!

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:


Too late now but for anyone who might be interested

Maybe focus on things like people going out less so less people in pubs/restaurants - so maybe some special deals to get people in

and coffee shops cost more than a home brew so maybe something to tackle that

Same with premier inn people will be less likely to take holidays if their job is at risk/taken a paycut etc.
