Other Thought Exchange events took place in Mexico City, Mexico and Istanbul, Turkey. Brown blogs about his experiences from the Thought Exchange in the Telegraph News, For the first time in several years it was an opportunity to take a helicopter view, to discuss business issues and opportunities with like-minded entrepreneurs and to see China - a market I supposedly knew well - in a different light, and with a top down approach.For more on Brown's blog post and thoughts from other Business Thinker finalists, visit www.businessthinking.hsbc.co.uk or visit www.telegraph.co.uk.
