Founded as FCBI round a kitchen table in 1990, originally with a focus on emerging markets, the company has grown organically in size and influence ever since. Operating from a single central London base, Reuters Events is now one of the largest and fastest growing events companies anywhere in the world. Reuters Events serve a diverse range of industries and place a focus on the challenges and opportunities resulting from technological and strategic innovation.
The dedicated, semi-autonomous industry teams at Reuters Events work to foster close relationships with the customers they serve; and a deep understanding of the strategic challenges they face.
In-depth research underpins the development of all products, resulting in highly focused and carefully curated information and event agendas.
Speaker faculties are made up of senior executives with critical insight on topics targeted. Exhibitions are geared to showcase the solutions of providers at the forefront of their fields.
As pioneers in the use of content for community development and marketing we foster year-round contact with our customers. The quality and value of the information we generate drives loyalty and underpins why our brands are considered leaders in their respective markets.
We offer help in the sectors where it’s needed most, using specialist industry knowledge to promote development.
We research the most difficult business questions to help our customers address their biggest problems and determine their strategy. Whether it’s studies on the progress of emerging technologies, data on fast-moving markets, or updates on regulatory change, we’re always up to speed.
We work with and for the most future-focused businesses worldwide. They rely on Reuters Events to support them in solving critical business challenges and honing strategies to thrive in today’s constantly evolving markets.
Quality attendance is key to our value proposition. Our events attract senior decision makers, domain experts and industry key influencers as a rule. The result: forums where business gets done – not just discussed.
The Reuters Events work environment will provide you with a thorough business education.
Whatever path you take in the organisation, you’ll develop business skills that put you head and shoulders above your peers at the same stage of career development – most importantly, you’ll develop the judgment to make good business decisions in different environments and situations.
Your personal development will be delivered by a mix of on-the-job learning (supported by experienced and highly talented mentors) and formal external training.
As one ex-employee (now a director at a FTSE 100 company) once commented: “Working at Reuters Events is better than an MBA”
Reuters Events employees are given training in the fundamentals of business from the word go. The name of the game is continuous improvement and you’re expected to hit the ground running!
To facilitate this Reuters Events operates a 70-20-10 split to learning and development, where:
- 70% is on the job. I.e. you’re doing things yourself from day one
- 20% is with a mentor. This could be your manager, an experienced team member, or a peer. Part of your development should be striving to become a mentor, and taking on further responsibility.
- 10% is formal. E.g. in a classroom environment
