Brains Trust is  inspired by President Roosevelt's selection of two professors from Columbia University  to advise him on matters of importance, without bias and rhetoric, rooted in facts and insights.


A New York Times reporter discovered this intervention and called this group the President's Brains Trust. 


For Brains Trust India, we are creating a confederacy of great minds who  build bridges with knowledge. The British High Commission is a partner in this movement.


We have a stellar roster of speakers  the 'Brains Trust Associates" from India and the UK who present some great ideas in an audiovisual capsule  available for everyone to see. A multi city tour, with the speakers, to socialise these ideas through an outreach program is on the anvil.  


It is envisaged this program will evolve into a movement, rooted in knowledge appealing to a wide cross section of audiences.

We thank the  Brains Trust Associates and the production team. 


Enjoy the promotional videos  below and click on the link to watch the entire episodes. We plan to release all the episodes this summer. The pre production work for producing the content for season 3 is underway.


Watch, enjoy, share, write to us and participate.

The subjects avoid current affairs and any controversial issues.  We are independent & non partisan publishers. This program is dedicated to  our citizens who are interested in issues of significance presented by experts with scholarship. We do not take any institutional positions on matters of policy.
