Frances Robinson is a freelance journalist who spent the last four years covering EU technology and telecoms regulation for the Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones in Brussels. This role involved everything from interviewing Prime Ministers to urban safaris in post-industrial Belgium. She previously worked for AFX in Brussels and then covered the European Central Bank in Frankfurt for Bloomberg. Her beat included the eurozone crisis, tech and telecoms, and the fascinatingly complex world of Belgian politics. She only accidentally offended the entire country once. And it was a genuine misunderstanding. Her radio and TV appearances include Sky News, RTBF, CNBC, BBC News Channel and BBC World Service.
She has a fortnightly column for DisCo project which is organized by the CCIA, a trade association for tech companies. She also does occasional copywriting for various tech companies. (Yes, this is a declaration of interest, and whenever I’m asked to do anything tech-related I always flag this up first.)
She is an experienced panel moderator, and can get a lively discussion going on topics from sustainable transport to food and wine to tax justice — check out feedback for her moderating work here.
