Travel Tip of the Day: Be Careful when Speaking about Sensitive Business

Phone

Be Careful when Speaking about Sensitive Business It still astounds me to hear people speaking really loudly about sensitive business on the phone or to a colleague on a plane, in a club room, at the gate, on a train, or wherever—in any public place. You have no idea who’s listening and in this day and age […]
