Piya Bose met Grant Hall, Founder of LCD, in 2015 when Grant was in Mumbai as a delegate on a trade mission organised by the Government of South Australia. They soon discovered a mutual belief that travel, the arts, sport and culture can bring peace to workplaces, communities and the broader world and sought to find ways to collaborate.
Grant Hall, Founder of LCD says “We are thrilled to welcome Piya to the LCD team as an Adviser. She is a highly respected thought leader on travel, entrepreneurship, Indian culture and international business. She has travelled to many nations including Antarctica and Greenland and is an inspiration to many people, particularly in her home country of India”
Piya Bose says “Girls On The Go is driven by the core philosophy of innovation and following ones dreams despite all obstacles and whatever the world may have to say. I believe that the one who leads the orchestra must turn their back to the crowd”.
