Last year, the inaugural issue of Reuters Magazine published to coincide with the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland. After its success and the success of its follow-up last summer at the Aspen Ideas Festival, Reuters is once again returning to Davos with a third issue: Reuters: A Way Forward, which will be distributed free to attendees at the event and is available to everyone for free download onto desktop and mobile devices from Reuters.com.
Since the world economic system fell off a ledge in 2008, recovery has been patchy and slow, and finding a way forward has been a challenge. “Tackling that challenge is what Reuters and its parent, Thomson Reuters, do every day: harnessing information of all kinds from all places to help people make more intelligent decisions,” writes Reuters Editor in Chief Stephen J. Adler in his editor’s letter. He adds, “and that’s what we attempt to do in this issue of Reuters: A Way Forward.”

Here is the first dispatch from our anonymous on-site correspondent in Davos, Switzerland, for the 2013 World Economic Forum.
Arrived in Davos on a snowy weekend, with large luscious snowflakes falling. The number one thing I’ve been warned about is that the city of Davos does not salt their streets and sidewalks to preserve the pristine water, so I arrive with boots with treads, snow crampons and a bottle of ibuprofen in case I actually do fall. But never fear; a small army of storekeepers are sweeping in front of their stores, the municipal snow cleaner is plowing away and a small army of Swiss policemen have been pressed into auxiliary snow removal.

Get ready for Davos, the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting, held in Davos, Switzerland over January 23 – 27.
This year’s theme “Resilient Dynamism” explores how we can catalyse and facilitate global, regional and industry transformation to improve the state of the world. As a strategic sponsor, we’ll be both covering and participating in the event with leaders from around the globe, including our own CEO Jim Smith, British Prime Minister David Cameron and UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon.
David Craig, Chris Perry, Shanker Ramamurthy, and Susan Taylor Martin will also be there to meet with clients and business leaders.

There is a really great article in the current Leadership Issue of Reuters Magazine titled “The Made-In-China CEO” written by Senior Company News Correspondent, Terril Jones. The article looks at the two types of CEOs which now dominate China’s business landscape: the traditional state-owned-enterprise leader who generally favors a lower risk strategy, and the “No-School CEO” that’s big on innovation and opportunity.
Zhang Yue is the featured CEO of this latter category who isn’t afraid to dream big and bold. His goal is to address the challenge of resource consumption and to make the world a more livable place in spite of increasing numbers. Some have dared to call him China’s version of Steve Jobs. After reading the article, I’m not sure I buy into that completely, but you can see that he retains many of the classic “Jobsian” attributes: focus, passion, and drive to see the vision become reality.
Zhang is a leader by example as you’ll see from the article. One of the things that I found quite interesting is that (more…)

We are excited to announce that Reuters News recently released the second issue of the Reuters Magazine, titled “The Leadership Issue.” Released to coincide with the Aspen Ideas Festival, the magazine gives insight into the volatile world we live in. Keeping on the theme of the #AspenIdeas, the issue contains a collection of incredible stories about some of the world’s foremost leaders in science, technology, politics, and economics. Highlights of the current issue include:
- What Would Winston Do?: In our time of economic turmoil, our politicians are more concerned with poll numbers than thinking; how Winston Churchill could save us.
- Car Czars: The stories of three men who, unwittingly, shaped the modern car as we know it; how the Minivan and the Model T sparked innovation.
- The Revolution Will be Organized: Arab Spring is over a year old, and populist uprisings have followed with force; how revolution is sustained, and what could cause it to fail.
The first issue of Reuters Magazine was published earlier this year, to coincide with the World Economic Forum in Davos in January 2012. Downloaded from the Reuters website over 120,000 times, it was a stellar success, and attendees and the public alike were smitten by the insights provided within.
The Aspen Ideas Festival continues through this week, highlighting some of the most important (more…)
