QUEST MEANS BUSINESS TURNED 10 THIS YEAR
This year Quest Means Business celebrated its 10th anniversary. The first episode of the show was filmed in January 2009 in Davos at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum.
Richard Quest and his team launched the show with only one goal in mind: to become the definitive word on how people earn and spend their money.
20 YEARS COVERING BREAKING NEWS
His coverage of breaking news spans over two decades. He reported on a range of stories from the death of Yasser Arafat, the Lockerbie Pan Am 103 crash to the death of Michael Jackson.
“Do not confuse the ability of somebody to take a picture and post it online with journalism. That isn’t an element of journalism. That is a moment in time if you like but that is not what people are paying money for when they pay for a quality newspaper, or they subscribe to a leading channel. Oh, no, no! That is the biggest mistake that people make! What journalism is about is the facts, the interpretation and the analysis.”
AT BRAND MINDS, RICHARD QUEST WILL BE LEADING THE EVENT PRESENTATIONS AND SPEAKERS INTERVIEWS
*More speakers will be announced in the following months so stay tuned!
