By Esteban Souto, Global Head of Eikon UX Design and Engineering, Thomson Reuters
Members of the Thomson Reuters Eikon team were recently honoured to welcome Susie Wolff, development driver for the Williams F1 Team, to the Design Lab in London. Before her visit to the lab, I had the pleasure of listening to Susie talk about her rise through the ranks of motorsport – a fast, tough, precise, technical sport – where it’s not every second, but every hundredth of a second that counts.
Drivers and their cars have to perform at absolute peak to get to number one. Both are put through rigorous, extensive testing day after day – just like we do with Eikon and our users in the Design Lab. (more…)

After a three week hiatus since the last Formula One™ grand prix in Bahrain, teams are eager to get back to the planning that every race week entails. While not always glamorous, the crucial four days of preparation leading up to a race weekend bring teams one step closer to, smelling burnt tires on the pavement, feeling the adrenaline of a well-executed corner, and with any luck… tasting victory – regardless of how each team defines it.
As the 2013 Formula One™ Spanish Grand Prix approaches on May 12th at Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona, fond memories are sure to be in the minds of the Williams F1 Team – of whom Thomson Reuters has been a proud partner the last 14 years. After a win by Pastor Maldonado at the 2012 Spanish Grand Prix – marking a great accomplishment for the Williams F1 Team and Maldonado – and the progress over the last few races, all signs point to another exhilarating upcoming race weekend for the Team.
This past Saturday was the TEDxTeen event in NYC, hosted by the We Are Family Foundation. The day kicked off with a book signing breakfast, fostering conversations between teenage speakers, inventors, founders, authors and attendees.
Opening remarks started around mid morning where everyone was encouraged to immediately start tweeting, as the global audience was ready and waiting to be a part of the conversation. Chelsea Clinton took the stage, engaging the audience with words of confidence, describing the millennial generation as digital natives who are open to change.
Although the event was titled “The Audacity of whY,” Chelsea noted that most of the speakers were those who questioned “why not?” Why not live with no limits, like Kuha’o Case, the blind speaker from Hawaii who taught himself how to play the piano and has driven a car. Or why not build an arcade with only cardboard boxes, like speaker Caine Monry.
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.
Around the holidays, as we take time to reflect on the year and acknowledge all the good that has happened to and around us — it is also important to find ways to help others.

In October, Thomson Reuters had the opportunity to co-sponsor Notebook Mentoring at the Summit — where 27 impressive young ladies from Camp Pendleton spent the day learning from delegates. Our hope is that the mentoring session, and what comes from it over time, will inspire all of these remarkable young ladies to be among the next generation of most powerful women.
We hope you enjoy experiencing the highlights from the successful mentoring session.

I had the opportunity last night to participate in a two-hour dinner discussion on the Euro Zone crisis, which Thomson Reuters sponsored along with The Atlantic. There were about twenty participants each with specific expertise and a great deal of experience in Europe (it seemed that about half of us all lived in Brussels at the same time). In addition to my Thomson Reuters colleagues Nick Collier (Global Head of Government Affairs) and Luke Baker (Brussels Bureau Chief for Reuters News), participants included diplomats from France, the European Commission and the Finnish ambassador, representatives from the IMF and the World Bank, and commentators from the press, academia and consulting firms.

Last month, the Roy Wilkins Center for Human Relations and Social Justice, at the Hubert H. Humphrey School of Public Affairs, University of Minnesota, marked its 20th year anniversary. The Center was established to continue the legacy of Roy Wilkins, a 1923 African American graduate of the University Minnesota, and the former chief executive of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). His legacy was the study and formulation of solutions to problems of racial and ethnic inequality. Mr. Wilkins, who spent 46 years with the NAACP, including 22 years as chief executive, was at the helm of significant civil rights victories including Brown vs. Board of Education, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
