Stephanie Flanders is one of the world’s most respected economics experts having previously worked as the BBC’s economics editor. Over the course of her career, the journalist and author has been the authority on economics for a range of institutions including The Financial Times and New York Times where she worked as a lead writer. As a virtual speaker, Stephanie can provide audiences with her experience and insight from over 30 years in the industry as well as discussing a range of topical issues.
Formerly a BBC journalist on Newsnight prior to being made the organisation’s economics editor in 2008, Stephanie once presented a review of Britain’s economic status from her bicycle, regularly looking for ways to make the subject more interesting and accessible. Her time at the BBC also saw her demonstrate her presenting chops hosting BBC news bulletins and fronting her own BBC Radio 4 show Masters of Money. In 2013 she departed the BBC to join J.P. Morgan as the firm’s chief market strategist for the UK and Europe.
After leaving university Stephanie joined the Financial Times as a lead writer with much of her work focusing on economics and politics. In 1997 she worked as a speechwriter and advisor to the US Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers. All of these roles would stand her in good stead for her future career and at her virtual speaking events, she is able to speak at length about the things she learned as well as inspiring women to go for these high-profile business roles.
Currently, Stephanie is back in the journalism field working as Bloomberg’s economics expert. Here she uses her decades of experience in both the private and public sectors to provide viewers with the latest economic news.
