Katie Martin, Deputy Head, fastFT Book here

Tuesday 14 March 2017, 12.30 for 1:00pm, AXA, 5 Old Broad Street.

Katie runs fastFT, which is the FT's online breaking news service running 24 hours a day, 5 days a week.

Their aim is to provide the first hit on all the typical FT news topics: economics, companies, markets, politics and world news, and any other other quirky things in between, with stories written largely by teams in Hong Kong, London and New York. Added to the mix is a steady flow of markets analysis.

FastFT does not try to be as fast or as comprehensive as wires. That's what the wires are for. But they select the stories they want to hit and aim to produce snappy, breezily written stories for as broad an audience as possible.

Katie came to the FT in May 2015 after an 11-year stint at Dow Jones/WSJ, mostly focused on markets. In addition to writing/editing/managing fastFT, she also writes longer form news and columns, and creates videos and podcasts.
