Brains Trust is an educational audio visual series.

The program is inspired by President Roosevelt’s selection of two professors from Columbia University to advise him on matters of importance, without bias and rhetoric, rooted in facts and insights. A New York Times reporter discovered this intervention and called this group the President’s Brains Trust.
For Brains Trust India, we are creating a confederacy of great minds who build bridges with knowledge. The British High Commission is a partner in this movement.
We have a stellar roster of speakers the ‘’Brains Trust Associates” from India and the UK who present some great ideas in an audiovisual capsule available for everyone to see.

A multi city tour with the speakers and a digital broadcasting program socializes these ideas through an outreach program.

This program is evolving into a movement, rooted in knowledge appealing to a wide cross section of audiences.
