Transactional Trust. Virtuous Organisations. The New Journalism.

Talk to George about: why trust is transactional and how to play the currency market of hopes, the virtuous organisation, owning your media and the character of journalism in the digital era

George is a visiting fellow at the LSE, in the Media & Communications faculty, whence he has developed new models for media and journalism and their relationships with politics and commerce in the 21st century.

He is a journalist by background, across the political spectrum from an award-winning industrial editorship of The Observer to the columns and blogs of The Daily Telegraph – one way or another, he’s contributed to every national title (plus the odd international one, such as Newsweek) as well as editing a global online news platform.

He co-founded and ran a London-Brussels issues-management consultancy in the nineties and noughties, then sold it to its management. He co-founded Jericho in 2013 and served as its launch chairman. As a renaissance man, he’s also an Anglican priest, occasional broadcaster and author of The Death of Spin (2003)plus a 2017 novel, which was well-received – both the people who read it quite enjoyed it.
