Thank you, Reuters

At the risk of sounding sentimental I wanted to post something to mark the end of ‘Reuters’, as I, and many, knew it - the split of News and Financial Services. I joined Reuters back in 1997 in the heady dot-com days. I was there for quite a few years and I learnt a lot. Now, in my post Reuters days, there is rarely a day that goes by without me mentally thanking Reuters for what I learnt. It set me up for the rest of my career. The greatest lesson I learnt was that really the thing that matters the most is the people - what kept the lights on at Reuters was not the infrastructure, the name, the corporate freebies but the people who cared about the service they delivered. ■
