It’s pretty amazing to see history being created before your very eyes.
We didn’t say those exact words to each other, but I know Rob Flaherty, Ketchum’s CEO, felt it, too, as we dropped into our airplane seats at midnight, after two mind-boggling days in Mumbai last week. We met with clients, with Omnicom leaders, with Rajan and Bela (founders of Ketchum Sampark), with colleagues from 7 different offices via videoconference, including the entire Mumbai office staff.
I may have imagined it, but everywhere Rob and I went, everyone seemed out of breath … from the pursuit of opportunity, from the pace of growth, but mostly I suspect, from sheer hard (and very impressive) work. No one in India is standing still.
