Associate editor and management editor of the Financial Times Andrew Hill marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of the Victorian thinker John Ruskin with a look at his enduring influence, in discussion with Ruth Nutter, producer of Ruskin in Sheffield, a programme of events and activities to rediscover Ruskin’s legacy in the city.


In his book Ruskinland: How John Ruskin Shapes our World, Hill explains what makes Ruskin so important today. He says Ruskin had radical ideas on economics, education, environmentalism and more, all of which have relevance in how we run or lives, government, museums, schools and businesses. Hill travelled in the footsteps of Ruskin and found his influence alive and well across the world from Venice to Florida’s coast.

Hill writes features and a weekly column on business, strategy and leadership. He was business commentator of the year in the 2016 Editorial Intelligence Comment Awards and is also author of Leadership in the Headlines.
