Turkish Delights and Turkish Warriors

12:00 AM

Istanbul is my spiritual home and last week was yet again a smörgåsbord of highs and lows… I didn’t eat a single aubergine, which is actually difficult to achieve and more than annoying! Thankfully though I met with lovely Numan Numan and discussed how to create more efficient flow of capital, innovation and communication across the region.  Too early to flesh out our cool ideas but watch this space…. Numan also gave me crash course in how to look like Turkish Warrior. Apparently I’m not a natural but I might just disrupt the paradigm of the warrior look with an intimidating baby face grin?? ha

My inspirational meeting with the charismatic Leyla Alaton and Billur covered most topics… How to use Instagram to build your personal brand – Check her out @leylaalaton – the growth and genius of Tinder (no comment :-)) and my best new app this week – Wakie. Wakie is social schnoozing app that lets you wake up strangers. Hilarious and brilliant!

Check out the result - a great pic of eating Turkish Delights... Love that woman
