John Dawson, Director at Artemis Associates
“My role as TV news anchor means I need to be alert, firing and lightning quick to jump on breaking news. And at 5am day in, day out. I don't drink coffee and never have so the clarity/smart energy™ is my knight in shining armour. The fact that it's cleaner and healthier means I need to shield it from my colleagues. The revolution has begun and nowhere is it more obvious than the electric buzz of a manic newsroom.“
John Dawson joined Artemis Associates as company director in April following a 20 year career at Bloomberg Television, where he was a prime-time anchor in Europe and Asia, interviewing world leaders in industry and politics. John is also an in-demand conference moderator/speaker, having chaired numerous panels and reported from various European and Asian conferences, including the World Economic Forum in Davos and the politically-charged OPEC meetings. John’s career has propelled him to the heart of the business community, where he’s established a strong rapport with Fortune 500 CEOs and developed a very healthy network of contacts across media, business, finance and politics. John’s exclusive, news-breaking interviews with General Electric’s Jack Welch and BP’s Lord Browne won him Bloomberg’s sole nominations for the U.K. Business Journalist of the Year award. As a writer, his work featured regularly on the Bloomberg newswire and in publications around the world, including the IHT, Financial Times and Business Week.
John graduated from the University of London with a Bachelor’s Degree in English & Classics. He moved to Hong Kong from London in October 2010.
