The Olympics are over and the Paralympics are coming. London has been abuzz.
I've never seen or felt anything like it: everyone being enthusiastic and helpful. It's 'Team GB' at its very best in every sense.
I went to an exceptionally high-powered conference last week. It was part of the UK government's Olympics programme for business networking to promote UK business and foreign investment. My day was the Global Business Summit on Retail, Food and Drink.
But, just as it was nearly over, the prime minister turned up along with one of the medal-winning Olympic teams.
Highly motivating. A day and a mood to remember.
