The ex-Wall Street and City analyst joined The Times as US Editor before taking over as CEO of Prospect magazine and Director of the Institute for Government. Now head of the world renowned Chatham House think tank, Bronwen helps business and policy makers navigate the geopolitical waters. As well as analysing the trends shaping anything from finance to defence, she explores how to govern a divided country and how to solve the big problems besetting Western democracies.


Bronwen is the Director and CEO of Chatham House. She is the former Director of the Institute for Government, the think tank that aims to improve the effectiveness of government. Previously she served as Editor and CEO of the influential current affairs magazine, Prospect.

Bronwen started out as an investment analyst in the city and on Wall Street, and a director of Kleinwort Benson's media team. She moved into journalism to head up the Financial Times investigation into Robert Maxwell, before joining The Times as Washington Bureau Chief, US Editor, and finally Foreign Editor. She remains a regular newspaper contributor.

With access to key figures across business, politics and leadership, Bronwen has built a reputation for informed, original insights. She has interviewed everyone from Henry Kissinger to Vladimir Putin, is the author of In Defence of America, and is perfectly positioned to analyse the global impact of events in Washington, Westminster and beyond. She looks at the key factors that influence current policy making, the consequences of government action, and how to prepare for it.
