“The award was a great opportunity to learn and contribute. I was posted to the beyondbrics blog, covering the rise of emerging markets, from Indian billionaires to Chinese school children. New ideas were always welcome, and getting the hang of financial reporting was an enjoyable challenge.” Henry Mance
“Since joining the FT on the Marjorie Deane programme, I have had the chance to write about a huge variety of fascinating topics - from the Arab Awakening to the Eurozone crisis to pandas - met presidents and spy chiefs, business titans and eminent economists, and spent time working in both London and Berlin. I cannot imagine a better introduction to journalism”. James Shotter
