She considers the future of work and value-driven business, and publishes two columns: The Last Globalist, on living an open life in a world that’s shutting down, and Media in 60 Seconds, a weekly video series about the media industry. Isabelle got her start in newspapers, working as a reporter and editor for publications in the US, Cambodia and France.

On this episode, we talk about newspapers; what it takes to set up an international editorial team; and how us freelancers can use our LinkedIn profiles to tell the most compelling story of our unique careers. I even get a tour of their new London offices in the The Guardian‘s old Farringdon Road building!

I like the comma in American headlines, I think England needs it.
