Activity: Public engagement and outreach › Contribution to the work of non-academic organisations
I worked as a senior editor and international correspondent for Reuters news agency in various roles over a period of 20 years. I led specialist international coverage and initiated major strategic projects to ensure Reuters maintained its position as a leading global news brand. I personally covered major stories such as the Asia crisis, the introduction of the euro and the global financial crisis of 2008. My coverage of the European currency turmoil of the 1990s and the creation of the euro led to a book which I co-edited (EMU Explained, first and second edition, Kogan Page). I have interviewed numerous government ministers, CEOs, central bankers and other public figures.
