Joanna Webster

Global Editorial Director, Reuters TV


Jo leads a global team of video journalists and technical staff producing programming for Reuters’ flagship consumer TV app, which launched in February 2015. She has spent the last two years developing the product and its editorial mission. Reuters TV is available on iOS, Android, the web and Apple TV. It’s on-demand, relevant and mobile — putting users in control of what they watch and when they watch it.

Before working on Reuters TV, Jo was Editor-in-Charge of Reuters Digital Video in EMEA. As well as determining the editorial agenda for Reuters Insider, Jo worked on key syndication deals. A former CNBC producer, where she had a front row seat to the 2007 financial crisis, Jo also delivers outside broadcasts including ‘Davos Today’ for the World Economic Forum, as well as newsmaker events such as ‘The Press We Deserve’ with Sir Harold Evans at Banqueting House. Jo is a keen runner and following a five-week stint in an ashram in 2014 – and 200 hours of intensive yoga teacher training – is now a qualified hatha yoga instructor.

At TEDx Square Mile, Jo Webster will discuss her experience of rolling out the mat at work, and how this ancient discipline can drive productivity and success in the office.
