With masks, social distancing and streaming in place, our traditional Friday Lectures are back and in full swing. Maddie, VII, tells us more about the most recent instalment:
Last Friday Bronwen Maddox, OP and director of the Institute for Government, delivered a fascinating lecture on her career in journalism. She regaled us with some highlights, including her award-winning investigation of the notorious Robert Maxwell at the Financial Times and a chance encounter with Putin in 2007. But what really struck a chord was her reassurance that it is possible to pursue a career in something as demanding and fast-paced as journalism without forgoing children; Maddox’s own daughter is in the VIII here at St Paul’s. All I can say is that if any of us manage to achieve half of what Maddox has, we would have a lot to feel proud of.
