Diane Bérard

Columnist, Les Affaires

If Diane Bérard has one fear, it’s boredom. Fortunately, it doesn’t look as though the esteemed journalist and best-selling co-author of several books will have to confront that fear anytime soon. Her incisive interview style, grasp of complex business and media issues, and ability to find and report on stories that might otherwise have flown under the radar have made her an in-demand social and economic commentator. A specialist in international issues, she is especially interested in the new challenges facing capitalism, ethics and governance, as well as the ongoing transformation of entrepreneurship. Diane is possessed of boundless passion and energy when it comes to not just exploring and exposing issues of significant economic importance, but also putting a human face on them.
