ABOUT THE EVENT :

In our key financial literary talk for 2024, FT journalist Miles Johnson will tell the story of researching and identifying the lives of three very different men who battle to control their destinies as they hurtle through the hall of mirrors of the global shadow economy.

Set during 2015 and 2016, as the global order began to implode under the pressures of the Syrian civil war and the European refugee crisis, Chasing Shadows looks back over the historical conflicts, events and personal histories that have shaped the lives of these three men. Moderated by Karen Koh. Guests are encouraged to arrive early to pick up a book. Beverages will be available a la carte from House Studio at Soho House.
