The D&O Diary continued its Asia Pacific tour with a very brief stop in Mumbai, India’s financial capital.
The primary purpose of my visit was to participate as a keynote speaker at the 2023 Bima Gyaan Symposium. Bima Gyaan is an Indian insurance education association. As in past years, the Bima Gyaan event was cosponsored by the Professional Liability Underwriting Society (PLUS). I would to thank the Bima Gyann leadership, PLUS, and the event planning committee for inviting me to be a part of this event again this year. I would especially like to thank Dr. N. Raveendran, Suresh Balakrishnan, and Uttara Vaid for all of their work in organizing this event and for being such gracious hosts while I was in Mumbai. This year’s version of the Bima Gyaan event attracted a larger audience than in any prior year, and the dedicated audience members stayed until the session’s very end, late in the day on a Friday afternoon.
My time in Mumbai was far too short. The morning after the conference, I was up early and on my way to my next destination. It was a shame that my brief visit allowed almost no opportunity to enjoy being in Mumbai. Next visit, more time to see Mumbai — and the rest of India.
