In September this year, Michael Wolff and Wally Olins were reunited on stage for the first time since going their separate ways in the 80s. In a session at the Kyoorius Designyatra conference in Mumbai, which was chaired by Creative Review’s editor Patrick Burgoyne, the pair talked about working together, splitting up, what they achieved and what they think of the branding world today.

We have four exclusive extracts of the talk for you here on CRTV, provided by Kyoorius Designyatra. In this first extract, the pair talk about their close working relationship and what drove them mad about each other.

See Patrick’s full report on chairing the four-day Designyatra conference over on the CR Blog.
