William N. Thorndike, Managing Director of Housatonic Partners, will discuss his latest book published by Harvard Business Review Press, The Outsiders.

The Outsiders examines what makes a successful CEO by closely evaluating the performance of companies and their leaders. You will meet eight individualistic CEOs whose firms’ average returns outperformed the S&P 500 by a factor of twenty — in other words, an investment of $10,000 with each of these CEOs, on average, would have been worth over $1.5 million twenty-five years later.

In this book, you'll learn the consistent and rational traits that helped these select leaders achieve exceptional performance.
