Our 100th Issue of Perspective

100th Issue of Perspective

Grant Speed, Global Managing Director of Odgers Interim, looks back over the years of the Perspective newsletter and recommends a few key articles to read  

We released our first issue of the Odgers Interim Perspective in September 2012. Over the past eight or so years, we have delivered hundreds of pieces of thought leadership, case studies, event summaries, company news, and more, into your inboxes monthly. We have to thank each and every one of you for engaging with our content, reading our news and ideas and reaching out to us to let us know your thoughts. In particular, we must thank those of you who have contributed to our articles and been a part of our conversations, forming our views and sharing expertise with our community. 

To mark the 100th issue of Perspective, I wanted to reflect on some of the recent pieces of content. Our articles from 2012 might not have stood the test of time as the world continues to evolve, but there are a number of key pieces from the past couple of years I think continue to be relevant, share important advice and best practice and will be informative going into 2021. Here are my reading lists:
