Lumiere turned 17 on September 15th 2013. Charted the strategic journey for the next 4 years.

Lumière turned seventeen today, a magic number! ‘The Sound of Music’ had ‘you are 17 going on 18…older and wiser… and I’ll depend on you…’ Seventeen is about being responsible and getting ready to take bigger challenges.

A year short of becoming an adult, ‘moving out’… It’s about exploring the world, charting new paths, taking new challenges, our values as strong anchor. We push onward with some nervous excitement…

Milind and I met 27 years ago at a party, connecting over the Beatles’ rock ‘n rolling ‘she was seventeen … you know what I mean… I’ll never dance with another’. We never miss that quick look-smile anytime the number plays.

‘Don’t dance with another’ is too much to ask for, but we do have clients, team members, associates, alumni, family and friends who have held on our hand. Who continue to dance with us… continue to feel engaged.

Do dance with us today…

Its serendipity to be on CNBC talking at the SHEROES summiton flexiworking this birthday weekend… and serendipity that we are working onour first research in Africa this birthday weekend – a fabulous gift…

Our account managers will to be at a two-day offsite tomorrow, working on Lumière Refresh, charting the course for the next four years to adulthood.

Re’fresh’ party (read ‘account managers’) energized and aligned to cascade the action areas of the vision to the entire team…

Older and wiser… and we want to be fresh and bright and sparkling…

Rock n’ rolling… Refresh 17…

Thank you everyone!
