Dead Frog in the Rental Car

PRESENTED ON MAY 26, 2015
IN PRINCE GEORGE @ VOL 3

This is a look at finding delight and laughter, loneliness and frustration, and amazing people we find in our business travel journey.  Different than holiday and exploration travel where it's all about "me", business travel comes with a "they" agenda and the parameters that brings.  The trick is not to lose yourself in the agenda and to enjoy the ride and the surprises you may find.
