Biography: Will Hutton

Will Hutton is chair of the Big Innovation Centre, a business lead do tank and innovation hub that promotes open innovation. He is also the former executive vice chair of The Work Foundation. Will is an outstanding conference facilitator and keynote speaker on European and global economic issues.

Will began his career as a stockbroker and investment analyst, before working in BBC TV and radio as a producer and reporter. From 1983-88 he was the Economics Editor on ‘Newsnight’ and a reporter for  ‘Panorama’.  From 1981-83 he was the Producer/Director of ‘The Money Programme’ for BBC2 and from 1978-81 he was the producer/editor of Radio 4’s programme ‘The Financial World Tonight’. Before joining The Work Foundation, Will spent four years as editor in chief of the Observer and he continues to write a weekly column for the paper.

"In the online survey we did after the conference, Will got the following scores: Excellent: 33% Up to my expectations: 48% . Below average: 16% . Very poor: 3%. Some people apparently had difficulties in understanding Will (both pace and use of difficult words). But overall Will is amongst the highest appreciated speakers of the conference."
