Frances Cairncross Biography
Frances Cairncross is Rector of Exeter College, Oxford University. She is a great choice as a keynote speaker for topics that touch on the environment, economics, CSR (corporate social responsibility) and the future.
Frances chairs Britain's Economic and Social Research Council, and broadcasts on Marketplace and on the BBC. She was Management Editor of The Economist until 2004. Frances is the author of The Company of the Future, published in 2002. Frances examines the challenges and opportunities technology places on corporate structure. She also looks at the shifts resulting from the ‘death of distance’ – and outlines how companies, governments and environmentalists can make common cause.
She is also the author of The Death of Distance, a study of the economic and social effects of the global communications revolution, first published in 1997 and re-published in a completely new edition in 2001. This insightful book about the cataclysmic changes sweeping through communication and how those changes will shape the future was shortlisted for the MCA Management Book Award. The book predicts the ways in which the communications revolution will tilt the balance between large and small, rich and poor, as it transforms many business and government decisions
She wrote two books about the environment, Costing the Earth: the Challenges for Government, the Opportunities for Business and Green, Inc., during her time as environment editor of The Economist between 1989 and 1994. She won the first Reuter's-Alpe Action award for her coverage during that period.
