Travelling for work often means waiting for meetings to start, colleagues to arrive or that all important call to come in before you can clock off. ‘There’s a real art to getting it right’. Unlike working from the office – where you can find yourself chained to your desk - staying in a hotel means you can take advantage of your ‘dead-time’ time. Crowne Plaza Hotels and Resorts found that 65% of business travellers they spoke to in a recent study considered themselves more opportunistic when travelling for business. That could mean getting to know your colleagues (for better or for worse) or pitching to your boss in an informal setting. It could also justify hitting the gym, chilling in the spa or grabbing a mojito after the meeting. Just be ready to spring to attention when your boss walks in - unless of course you are the boss...in which case, perhaps your corporate credit card could facilitate some team bonding.
