Tag: Global outreach
There’s so much good news to share about the continued ripple effect that “Odds On” is making around the globe, it’s hard to know where to begin. Here are a few highlights.
Now Hear This: “Odds On” Audiobook, Narrated by Matt Hall
If you’re looking for a way to thank friends, family and colleagues this holiday season, think about stuffing their sock with the audio version of “Odds On.” Two reasons why:
- Initially, we hired a professional voice artist to narrate the book. That just didn’t feel right, so we replaced pseudo-Matt with the real deal, personally telling his tale.
- As we post this blog, the audio version is priced at $3.49, so you can splurge on one for yourself while you’re at it. Enjoy!
“Odds On,” a Dutch Treat
Partnering with several like-minded colleagues in the Netherlands, “Odds On” is now available in Dutch! Bringing the world closer together through technology and evidence-based investing, Matt was honored to participate in a well-attended intercontinental web conference in the Benelux region (Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg). In particular, we’d like to thank Robert Van Beek of About Life & Finance B.V., who translated the book and facilitated the conference; and Jeffrey de Haan and David Swanwick of Dimensional Fund Advisors’ Benelux and U.K. offices, respectively.
Hands Down, Thumbs Up, Near and Far
Speaking of global outreach, we’ve received so many heartwarming endorsements from groups and individuals whose lives have been touched by Matt’s book. Every one of them is special to us, but to name a couple of recent highlights:
- The respected INSEAD Business School for the World® has featured “Odds On” on the bestseller page in their library, currently at #7 as we write this post.
- We also were touched to see financial tech-head Greg Elliott mention “Odds On” in an Orion software newsletter interview (page 8).
To the general public, that second one may not seem like such a big deal. But among us financial types, Orion is a very familiar name as one of our most important software service providers. It’s fun to see our message spread in ways we could not have imagined when we began the journey.
If you’re watching closely, you may notice we’ve been on an international roll lately, collaborating with like-minded evidence-based investment professionals in Benelux and appearing as recommended reading in INSEAD’s library.
Along that theme, we were thrilled to welcome Evidence-Based Investor journalist Robin Powell to our St. Louis offices during his recent U.S. tour. A true gentleman no matter where you find him, Robin is based in the U.K. but is fast becoming an international champion of positive change in the investing industry.
In a future post, we look forward to sharing an interview between Robin and Matt Hall, taped from our offices. In the meantime, you can get a taste of Robin’s style by checking out this podcast, “What’s with the name? The Evidence-Based Investor.”
