Lionel Barber was editor of the Financial Times for 14 years. Up close to the global giants of business, finance and politics, he was frequently witness to the events that shaped the first part of the 21st century. In his new book, The Powerful and the Damned he recalls being confidante to the banking magnates on the eve of the financial crisis; stories from the frontline of the Brexit campaign – and reveals Barack Obama’s verdict on Blair, Brown and Cameron. Join us as Barber recounts the conversations, late-night dinners and unexpected comic nuggets from those who make the news.
