On today’s Wintrust Business Lunch, Bob Sirott is joined by Steve Pemberton, author of A Chance in The World and Doug Harris, CEO of the Kaleidoscope Group. Steve discusses the memoir about his life growing up as a foster child.

Cohost of The Big Payoff Suzanne Muchin joins the show to speak about Rent The Runway; a service that allows women to rent high-end dresses. Are women under unfair pressure to keep their wardrobe different for the work place?

Phil Simon is the author of Message Not Received. He joins Bob to talk about how technology is affecting businesses but not in the way you think. Emails and text messages are only a few reasons people are being desensitized to face-to-face communication. Phil and Bob dig deeper into that and more issues.
