Today I met Mr. Trammell Crow again.
He is a delightful gracious man.
For those of you new to this blog, Mr. Trammell Crow is one of Dallas’s richest citizens. Which makes him a billionaire. He’s also a staunch environmentalist – he’s a huge supporter of Global Earth Day – and his collection of Asian Art at his downtown Art Museum is renown throughout the world.
Since our last meeting in November, he’s lost none of his eccentricity. And his interest in my film has only deepened.
We spent two and a half hours talking tonight, at his beautiful home.
At the meeting was Jennifer, and Priyanka. Trammell was very interested in Priyanka’s jewellery business, and very kindly gave her contacts at the highest levels into Dallas’s prestigious department stores and major jewellery stores.
He asked me many piercing questions about the film. I was able to answer them just fine. In fact, more than fine.
I’m now going to introduce him to some influential Holy men in India, and he is going to introduce me to some influential money men in Dallas.
Towards the end of the evening, he took us to his son’s garage where he keeps stacks of gifts, and gave each of us a gift.
Is Mr. Crow going to be personally involved? Who knows – but he might come to Bhutan with us.
Wouldn’t that be cool!
Irrespective, I like the man enormously and have huge respect for what he’s doing to try and save the planet. I don’t care if he invests or doesn’t invest. I value any time just spent talking to him…
