James Ashton is one of the UK’s most prolific and well respected business journalists, having held the positions of City Editor and Executive Editor at the Evening Standard and Independent titles and before that City Editor at the Sunday Times, as well as writing for the Daily Mail, The Times, The Scotsman, Business AM, the Financial Times and Reuters. For four years he was the Sunday Telegraph's Questor investment columnist.
James has therefore had a front row seat reporting on events such as the banking crisis, multibillion-pound takeover battles, disruptive technologies and the personalities that shape global business. Drawing on this experience of interviewing over 400 business leaders, James has written a book 9 Types of Business Leader, and Champion was delighted to be able to invite a selection of the business leaders we work with to meet with James to discuss some of the ideas and observations that he has captured in this book.
