Las Vegas cab driver finds $300K in back seat | Business Travelling | Scoop.it
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas cab driver Gerardo Gamboa thought someone left a bag of chocolates in the back seat of his vehicle, but the stash turned out to be $300,000 in cold hard cash.

Lori Wilk's insight:

I would not be comfortable publishing a story about finding that much money in the back seat of my cab if I were a driver. The person leaving that money behind must have been frantic.

Coroner: Toxic fumes in plane cabins could be dangerous to frequent flyers

Coroner: Toxic fumes in plane cabins could be dangerous to frequent flyers | Business Travelling | Scoop.it
A coroner has warned that toxic fumes in cabin air could pose a health risk to frequent fliers and aircrew.

Via SustainOurEarth
Lori Wilk's insight:

This is something that as a traveler I had not considered and it's worth understanding. I have a few friends who worked as one of the ground crews at a major #airport for 20+ years  around the aircraft fuel fumes and they got #lung #cancer. Anything in excess can be bad so it doesn't shock me that spending too many hours in an environment  such as a closed up aircraft cabin could  have an impact on our #health. We  need to know more about this . There's serious potential health implications.

Lori Wilk's insight:

We are all human and we can and do benefit by finding ways to #network with other #business people at #events where we are face-to-face and can interact and socialize.

Events and meetings are once again popular and have a very good ROI. Face to Face will never go away as a relationship building experience. Proper planning and cost savings will help to get it right. GTI Travel is experienced in working with this area of business travel.

Lori Wilk's curator insight, May 20, 2015 1:21 PM

This article promotes participation in events as having value in building relationships with other people. In our strategic marketing plans we look at events locally within driving distance and also attend events that require travel and more planning. We do workshops which educate people with our Online Marketing Game Board and encourage people to do more content curation as we attend events.

A similar situation existed in Honokaa, where a fundraising effort by residents saved their theater from closing. Aloha, Russ

Smart hoteliers know that  #spa experiences help people feel wonderful and add to #wellness #wellbeing #relaxation and #happiness.
