Our moderator, Mark Walton will take us through today’s hot topics that a travel manager must learn to navigate in a managed travel program where it is becoming increasingly more difficult to show value to executive management.   From data management, communicating to the C-Suite, risk/duty of care to Communication and Marketing and how Social Media plays a part, this is one presentation you won’t want to miss.   Hear the “Top Ten Focus Areas” compiled by the panel, and how our esteemed panelists use this list to help drive compliance and make their travel programs a success.
