The Program:

As speakers, trainers and consultants, travel is part of building and maintaining your business. Are you enjoying the process of traveling to gain fame and fortune? Face it, you’re going to keep on flying, no matter how much “mailbox money” is coming in. You can either dread each schlep to the airport, or decide to take every possible step to enjoy the journey.

After travels in 96 countries (so far), George has figured out myriad ways to enjoy the process of getting there, no matter how onerous a journey might seem.

Each of George’s tips applies to both a routine speaking trip to Boise or an adventure trek to Belize City. New York and New Guinea are not much different in that you can make getting there enjoyable by embracing these tips.

You will learn how to:

  • prepare for the trip as the start of the fun, as well as save money and ensure maximum frequent flyer/guest benefits
  • run the airport gauntlet with ease and finesse, no matter where in the world you're departing
  • ensure high-quality service along the way with some uncommon techniques
  • guarantee that you'll arrive refreshed, with these novel in-flight tips
  • hit the ground running by applying unusual time- and stress-reducing tips upon arrival and at your destination

More about our guest expert:

George Walther is an acknowledged expert at boosting your sales, customer service, and communication effectiveness. His three books — Phone Power, Power Talking, and Upside-Down Marketing — have all been published around the world in many foreign language editions. He is one of fewer than 100 professional speakers to hold the National Speakers Association’s highest award for platform excellence, the “CPAE,” as well as the highest professional speaking designation, the “CSP.”

George caught the travel bug early, and it remains one of his passions. He had a college job with TWA and often vagabonded around the world during spring break, summer, and Christmas holidays. He hitchhiked extensively on every continent except Antarctica; slept in village huts in highlands of New Guinea, stayed with tribal leaders in Africa, hiked ancient Inca trails in Andes, visited Angkor Wat temples, and hit many world high points. He still travels widely, now at the request of multi-national corporations who use his expertise to help them communicate better (and these days he usually sleeps in hotels).
