Borrow Your Studio? Oh No!

Television presenter Paul Coia was in New York last week coaching executives from a Swiss based insurance company for an important presentation they were about to make by satellite to their offices around the world.

As the training began to wind down, a studio manager approached Coia with a request. A New Yorker was outside wondering whether she could borrow a few minutes camera time to record a message of thanks for Germany as her deceased husband had just won an award there.

Agreeing quickly, Coia and his team were astonished when the lady in question was gratefully ushered in. It was Yoko Ono.
