We recently conducted a media tour in New Delhi for a senior Executive from our client American Express Global Business Travel (GBT), Eyes Mrad, who was in India to visit GBT’s offices. While visiting we arranged for Eyes to meet with a number of leading travel and aviation journalists to discuss business travel trends in the Indian market. As part of this, we shared GBT data which outlines the top 10 most popular international travel destinations chosen by Indian business travellers.
We were really pleased to see that an article based on the GBT data which ran in The Hindu was also picked up by The Washington Post. Please see the full article here.
This piece in The Wireless has some great words in advance of Waitangi Day from our very own Annabelle Dick.

A strange thing happened in our house last night, it was the Paralympic opening ceremony in Rio and for the first time ever, we didn’t watch ‘The Great British Bake Off’ live. Instead, we switched to Channel 4 to watch the first ‘The Last Leg’ and wait with baited breath for the opening ceremony to begin.
Is it just us, or has Andy Murray been more cheerful lately? Even before he won the Wimbledon men’s finals but he even threw his racket into the crowd and made a joke about then Prime Minister, David Cameron, following his win. We’ve been wondering if he may perhaps have had some help from a new PR agency.
Boris Johnson may be a politician, Conservative MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip to be precise, and the newly appointed foreign secretary but he is also a journalist currently writing a column in the Daily Telegraph. As a core member of Teresa May’s government will he, and should he, be allowed to continue with his column?
Mana's founder and MD, Caleb Hulme-Moir, has been finding out how practising Mindfulness can help us live in the moment and written a great piece for New Zealand's Sunday Star Times.
Mana have been working with Anglican Bishop, Justin Duckworth, as he works to get the quota of refugees allowed into New Zealand increased from 750 to 1500 annually.
Bishop Duckworth says "As the Anglican Diocese of Wellington, we cannot stress enough how happy we are to welcome more refugees to the capital. I am confident that this attitude is shared by the wider New Zealand community." he continues, "As a society we have the desire and the capacity to do much more, and that is why it's time to double our annual quota of refugees from 750 to 1500."
This is something that Mana feels strongly about and we're proud to be helping the Bishop to spread his message far and wide.
