- Internship: The Economist, 2007
I will never forget my schooling at The Economist.
Marjorie’s advice: “Keep it short.”
My editor’s counsel on my failings as a writer: “Entertain first, inform second.”
Buttonwood’s abstemious example in a Canary Wharf boardroom: “Skip the wine and go to the marrow of the story.”
I feel lucky and grateful to have been a Marjorie Deane intern.
