For a while now, any long haul travel adventures of mine, always happen alongside delivering keynote speeches, somewhere around the world. For example, a gig in South Africa would mean I would have my flights booked some time apart, so I could spend a week in work mode, then 6 or so travelling to exotic … Continue reading Sky Wars, the battle for premium customer loyalty in the air.
So here I am, sat on the plane en-route from London to Moscow, embarking upon the first step of a very exciting personal journey. One where I see if I can make my life work as a ‘CX Nomad’.
