Our next Thomson Reuters Newsmaker — “Thriving in the New Global Economy” — with Dominic Barton of McKinsey is coming up on Tuesday, March 1.

Reuters Global Editor-at-Large Chrystia Freeland will conduct a live interview with the Global Managing Director of consulting company McKinsey & Co.

Barton has been with McKinsey for 24 years, rising to the company’s top spot in 2009. Previously, he had been stationed in Shanghai where he was McKinsey’s Chairman of Asia, and before that he headed McKinsey’s office in Korea.

“Thriving in the New Global Economy” will be one of the highlights of the Reuters Future Face of Finance Summit. Barton’s area of expertise is in financial sector development and reform. In 2002 he co-authored a book on financial shocks called Dangerous Markets: Managing in Financial Crises.

As always, we’d love to hear from our readers what questions you think Chrystia should be asking so please leave them as a comment at the bottom of this post.
