Fleur is our Canberra wordsmith. Got a tough issue and a tight deadline? She loves it.
After 20 years as a journalist with Australia’s leading newspapers, Fleur followed Dr Seuss’ career advice to go where “it’s opener out there, in the wide open air”.
Before joining 89 Degrees East, Fleur was a senior political journalist and parliamentary sketch writer with The Australian Financial Review, a regular panellist on ABC’s Insiders, Vice-President of the Federal Parliamentary Press Gallery and a founding member of the Canberra branch of Women in Media.
After a stint as an interest rate analyst for an international financial benchmarking firm, Fleur began her media career as a business journalist with The Courier-Mail and soon after moved to Canberra as national economics correspondent for News Corp Australia.
