Thomas’s Take – May 2022

Dear All,

As I look back at the first four months of 2022, I am delighted to see that – as we slowly emerge from Covid – an increased activity and engagement from members is happening.

First, I would like to thank members and committee members who either led talks or arranged and chaired SIG meetings, in particular – Martin Knowles, Sue Milton, Richard Owen and James Leeper.

I would specifically like to thank David Baldwin-Evans who arranged for the first Interim SIG of the year to be hosted in person at Odgers Interim in late March.
Thirteen of us participated in a very successful evening discussion about the current outlook of the Interim market, out of which 2 guests asked to join as members!

I would also like to welcome our newest members:

• Mike Feuer
• Ralph Pidsley
• Sakti Narayan
• Matt Goddard
• Lindsay Murdoch

In order to keep the momentum going, and if you have not already done so, please register for our in person joint event with Scotland House on Tuesday 24 May.

We will learn all about Scotland’s Ten Year Plan which will be presented by one of their recently appointed Trade Envoys, Garry Bernstein. A golden chance to network and perhaps even discover new interim, coaching and business opportunities with Scotland House members.

Don’t forget to bring guests with you.

In June, a further in-person evening at The Boot and Flogger, near The Shard / London Bridge will take place on Wednesday 15th June. This will be an opportunity to network and catch up after only seeing each other online for 2 years!

Looking forward to seeing lots of you at Scotland House,

Best wishes for your current endeavours,


Thomas Saltiel
Chair, XTEND – The Executive Network
