Watch: Interview with The Economist’s Toby Burton, who is Deaf

Posted on June 30, 2017

In this interview with Dukascopy TV, Toby Burton, who is CFO of The Economist and is Deaf, explains how finance helps to drive the profits of The Economist magazine’s circulation business.

This is a rare example of a Deaf person being interviewed without their deafness being an issue, with seamless interpreting support, and is well worth a watch. (Turn subtitles on if you need them in the bottom-right corner of the video box!)

The Limping Chicken is the UK’s deaf blogs and news website, and is the world’s most popular deaf blog. It is edited by Deaf journalist and filmmaker Charlie Swinbourne.
