Sponsored by

Part of the Inspirational Women Series

Supported by the Women in Business 

For the next in the Inspirational Women Series, we are delighted to be joined by Angela Mackay, the Global Publisher of FT Live and Managing Director of FT Asia Pacific. In an age where information is king, but simultaneously the credibility of traditional media outlets are constantly under attack, is being just a news source enough anymore? Join us to hear from the senior leadership of a global publication to hear her views on the road ahead for the company and media in general.
Based in Hong Kong, Angela is a member of the FT's global board. In Asia Pacific, Angela focuses on developing the group's significant potential across the region. This includes, the mainland's leading foreign-owned, Chinese-language news site, as well as the FT's burgeoning executive education business.
As Global Publisher for FT Live, Angela leads business and strategy development for events, membership and communities, such as FT Forums and the Board Director Programme (formally known as FT NED).
Angela also holds wider responsibility across the FT Group, as Chair of Longitude, a specialist thought-leadership and research company acquired by the FT in 2018, and as a NED of scoutAsia, a corporate data and news service powered by the FT and Nikkei.
Angela is a NED of the FT/IE joint venture Headspring Executive Development, and a board member of Asian Youth Orchestra, Hong Kong International Literary Festival and Sovereign Art Foundation.
