I was only there for 27 hours. Which is crazy. Silly, really. But I wanted to talk at Designyatra and I had a thing on Thursday and a thing on Sunday that I couldn't miss. So I left London on Friday morning and came back on Sunday morning. Like I said, crazy.
Designyatra was very well organised. Slick and efficient and interesting. And with Sir Martin Sorrell, Wolff and Olins on the bill it gets all the big names.My talk went really well. People laughed and clapped, and even booed, in all the correct places. Which is reassuring when you're doing a completely new schtick.
I had to speak in front of 1,200 people, which is a lot. Not a lot for India, apparently, but a lot for me.
After I finished speaking I had few hours before my flight and so the organisers very kindly arranged a lightening fast tour of Mumbai for me. Thanks to Rosh, my guide and Rajesh who lent us his driver.
Classic tourist shots. You don't get that on other design blogs. All my poses are even on brand!
Mumbai is a fascinating place. Impossible to take in in 27 hours. Obviously.
I want to go back.
Thanks to the organisers for inviting me, accommodating my ridiculous timings and for making me feel very welcome.
