Part of living the speaker life is travel, so today you’ll find out how to be a true road warrior! Joining us to give her expert insights and wisdom is our co-host, Melanie Diezel. If you’ve been listening to The Speaker Lab for awhile you’ll remember Melanie from some recent episodes: she is an outstanding speaker, coach and consultant on her own – and she also does a phenomenal job of coaching our Speaker Lab students.

And we had such terrific feedback from her recent appearances we decided to bring her back to the show. She’s joining us for the next 3 episodes and we’ll be talking about a few different topics.

Today we’re covering how to be a road warrior, booking travel, packing essentials, travel perks and rewards. It’s all things travel today as a speaker and road warrior! Join us for that and more on today’s The Speaker Lab.
