We’ve read countless Reuters newspaper articles and followed its breaking news stories online and the television, but there’s much more to this company.
On Thursday, OWIT member and Thomson Reuters employee Hulya Kurt, organized a truly great open doors event at the Thomson Reuters Geneva office.
The networking and nibbles – a fabulous spread of delicious canapé and drinks – got the evening going in the building cafe/reception area, designed like the inside of a boat, taking its inspiration from Lake Geneva, which is only a hop, skip and a jump away!
We then made our way to a conference room, where the presentations began. Hulya gave us an interesting overview of the company. The OWIT audience discovered that not only is Thomson Reuters the world’s most trusted news organization, it also serves professionals in the financial and risk, legal, tax and accounting, intellectual property and science and media markets.
Fellow colleague and OWIT member Maria- Angeles Martin also spoke in more depth about financial services and her work colleague Valentina Gilardi gave us an excellent and very informative demonstration of their highly successful product EIKON – a professional platform for market analysis and trading software, enabling better market intelligence, collaboration and trading.
With our brains boggling the scope of the trading world and this quite amazing technology, we made our way back to the reception for a little more networking and a quick tour of the site, which concluded our evening.
Once again, many thanks to Thomson Reuters and the three presenters, and all OWIT volunteers who helped organize the evening.
