It was actually Marcus Buckingham who said in the book ‘First Break all the Rules’, that leadership was more important than ‘company sponsored dog walking’. This is relevant when you look at the segment from sunrise.
We have had many emails from this article on Sunrise about – ‘What breed is Dexter?’ (Spoodle) He has the role at RedBalloon as the Head of Security.- and he is a very long term employee (employee #2).
There is much more to being a great place to work than having a dog, in fact, sometimes he works against employee engagement when he barks at a courier, pops a balloon (or two) or a special effect is if he fart’s in meetings (very anti-social). The video gives you a bit of an insight into our work place.
What I would have added to the clip is “No fun at work makes it a boot camp… all fun makes it a kindergarten. Fun needs to be tied to commercial return.”

Answering your #1 Biggest Business Challenge question tip: 

Go beyond just saying "Poor Cashflow" or "Unreliable Team". 

Instead, give Naomi details & specifics on how this is currently your #1 Biggest Business Challenge. 

I.e. "Every month I'm struggling to pay my bills on time because there just isn't consistent cash flow coming into the business. I've tried sticking to budgets in the past & pay myself less to keep some extra funds aside for emergencies, but still every month there seems to be another financial fire to be put out. I don't know what to do about it, so I'm just grinding it out."
