We’re in the papers…in Mexico!

Thursday, August 29th, 2013


We were very lucky to be invited to scribe at Foro Banorte last summer.  This was an event hosted by Mexican bank Banorte that aimed to spark conversation surrounding the growth of the Bajio region of Mexico.

Speakers included governors of the states of Aguascalientes, Guanajuato and San Luis, ministers of Economy and Taxes as well as ex-president of Colombia Cesar Gaviria and former mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani.

Conversation topics ranged from education to tax reforms, cooperation to competition. And we were there, visually capturing it all.

It was a multi-cultural challenge; we had a Canadian scribe capturing in Spanish, a Mexican scribe who learned to scribe in English and at some point we were listening to keynote speeches in English and translating them to Spanish as we scribed!

It was great to see participants coming up to the WorkWalls to see how ideas were coming together in a really visual and interesting way.

We even made it to the front page of the business section of Mexican newspaper Reforma!

Have a look at the photos below, they show an extract of the book we produced for Banorte as a memento of the event…
