Alison’s best advice for corporate travellers?
Make sure that your passport isn’t about to expire and that any Visas required for your destination are up to date.
Can you share an insight into corporate travel?
Despite rise of technology in travel, the desire for one-on-one human connection remains paramount. Businesses need to continue to arm their staff with the skills to build great relationships that deliver value to their customers.
How many countries have you travelled to?
I have visited 58 countries – but my favourite place in the world would have to be Antarctica (where I met my husband).
