The Financial Times and McKinsey & Company today publish the shortlist for the 2018 Business Book of the Year Award. Now in its fourteenth year, the Award is an essential calendar fixture for authors and the global business community alike. Each year it recognises a work which provides the most compelling and enjoyable insight into modern business issues.
Now in its third year, the FT Weekend Festival 2018 drew nearly 3,000 people to the grounds of Kenwood House to hear from the world's leading lights on art, music, literature, business, technology, food & drink and politics.
The Financial Times has hired award-winning columnist Camilla Cavendish as contributing editor. She will write a weekly column for the FT Weekend on politics and public policy from late October, and is a key speaker at this weekend’s FT Weekend Festival, discussing the lessons we’ve learnt from the financial crisis and the future of Britain post Brexit.
