FT Live hosted a number of events during the week including: the curtain-opener FT/Wipro Executive Dinner, Business in the 2nd Machine Age – Responsible and responsive leadership. This was followed by a breakfast forum in association with Citi during which Gideon Rachman chaired a panel on democracy and globalisation. To round off FT activity in Davos, Citi also sponsored a dinner featuring a conversation between Martin Wolf and Christine Lagarde on global growth and making the global economy work for all.
FT editor Lionel Barber said: “I know firsthand the impact fellowship programmes have on early career journalists, and I am excited that the FT and Nikkei are taking advantage of our global media partnership to create these two positions. We are committed to providing our reporters with opportunities to widen their skills, as well as deepen their understanding of new media business models. Silicon Valley is the ideal place to do just that.”
