— the CFO of world’s most powerful magazine

A while ago DeafDigest mentioned that Toby
Burton, a deaf man, is the Chief Financial
Officer with The Economist. This magazine
is widely read by professionals in the
financial and business sectors. He said,
in a recent interview, that as long as
he has interpreters with him, he is
able to communicate with anyone. He
also added that getting face to face
interpreters can be a problem because
of changing schedules and last minute
meetings. If that happens, he relies
on video relay interpreters.

defects that other engineers and other
construction supervisors overlook!
