An award-winning business journalist in a previous lifetime, Wendy knows what makes a great story. Her work has appeared in publications such as Institutional Investor, Forbes, The New York Times and the Economist/Intelligent Life. Since turning her attention to strategic communications as a partner in Defoe Consulting, she has successfully applied her skills as a journalist to forge compelling by-lines, white papers and points of view for a diversity of clients. Born in West Africa, Wendy was raised in London and educated at the London School of Economics, where she earned a B.Sc. in economic history. She also holds an M.A. in Latin American history from Columbia University. Wendy speaks French, as well as Spanish and German, and if she had the time would love to expand her linguistic repertoire, but her other interests (not to mention work) keep her much too busy!
