For the past fifteen years, her weekly column has poked fun at corporate jargon and business fads with insight, wit and precision, whilst also heralding the highs and lows of office life.

Lucy graduated from Oxford University with a degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics. She started out at the Investors Chronicle before joining the FT. Whilst working at the FT, she has also contributed to the BBC World Service programme Business Daily, she wrote and presented programmes for Radio 4, and she has podcasted her columns since 2007.

In her 31 years at the FT Lucy has been energy correspondent, Brussels correspondent, a Lexwriter, and an interviewer of business people and celebrities for the FT series.

Lucy can boast of prizes such as Columnist of the Year in the British Press Awards in 2006, winning the Industrial Society Work Word Award twice, and being awarded the Wincott Young Financial Journalist Award. Lucy has written celebrated management guides and fiction too.

The charity which Lucy co-founded, Now Teach, was set up to encourage high-flying professionals to retrain as teachers, in order to address the shortage of maths and science teachers. Following her own lead, Lucy took the plunge into the world of education in the summer of 2017.

Sharp, witty and knowledgeable, Lucy is the perfect speaker to share her tales of her time at the FT, her experiences setting up a charity and her expertise on the education sector.
