Conversations Mumbai is not just an event. It's a movement to bring like-minded people together, share ideas and help each other grow in their lives.
Our minds are cluttered with a bombardment of information at the speed of light. What we need are ideas! Because ideas spark conversations and these conversations trigger positive actions!
A bunch of like-minded individuals came together and founded Conversations Mumbai, a platform for Mumbaikars to share their ideas & spread positivity. The third instalment kicks off on Sunday, June 23, 2019
