FT Irreverent Questions with Mrs Moneypenny

Mrs Moneypenny, beloved Financial Times columnist, and her editor interview the world's most successful people in business, media, arts, entertainment, finance, academia and politics. Like Sir David Attenborough, the intrepid duo ventures to their subjects’ natural habitat. In their quest to figure out how this rare species of homo erectus lives and works they corner plutocrats at Davos parties and hitch a ride with America’s most famous living feminist. Fielding irreverent questions about serious FT topics from capitalism to work/life balance, they offer up a fair dollop of sometimes-humorous, but rarely- solicited career and management advice along the way.
