Just remember that he's the "evil" capitalist — "hard-headed businessman" and all that — and that the Inspector is Priestley's voice as the 'righteous' socialist and talk a bit about how Mr Birling goes from an authoritative figure to this weak, powerless figure...
Also, get the words "dramatic irony" in there — when he talks about the Titanic and WWI in his big speech at the start — and you'll be good to go!
