In this episode…
The CEOs of Guardian Media Group and of the Financial Times – David Pemsel and John Ridding – sit down with Propeller founder Martin Loat to discuss how they are protecting quality journalism via their respective business models, their varied paths to the top job, their decision-making processes and their most awkward business moment.
