MORE ABOUT OUR SPEAKER
Tyler Brûlé is the editor-in-chief of Monocle and founder and chairman of Winkreative. Born in Canada and based in the UK, Tyler Brûlé began his career as a reporter for the BBC, before turning to print journalism where he wrote for The Guardian, Stern, The Sunday Times and Vanity Fair. In 1996 Brûlé launched Wallpaper*, a title that went on to sell in more than 50 countries. In May 2002 Brûlé sold his stake in Wallpaper* to focus on developing Winkreative, the full-service branding and design agency he set up in 1998. The agency is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Swiss parent company Winkorp AG, which Brûlé founded in 2002.
In 2007, Brûlé launched Monocle, a global media brand that combines print, web, retail and broadcast components. Distributed in over 65 countries, Monocle’s reach includes a network of over twenty correspondents, six bureaux and an expanding mix of video and audio programming – as well as two seasonal newspapers per year. At the same time, Monocle has created a unique retail model with freestanding shops in London, Hong Kong, Tokyo, New York and Toronto – along with an e-commerce site on monocle.com. Monocle has cafés in Tokyo and London, a Hotel Lobby Shop in the Hyatt Regency London. In 2011 Monocle launched a new audio service, Monocle 24. Broadcasting from the Monocle studios in London, Monocle 24 brings listeners a mix of conversation, the best of culture, business and design - and is hosted by Brûlé and the Monocle editorial team. Brûlé is also a regular columnist for the Financial Times.
