We’re bringing you all the latest business travel trends and topics from our very own industry experts. Each bite-size session will offer insight, how-to’s and top tips on subjects such as building traveller confidence, implementing a sustainable travel policy, creating successful corporate travel programmes and more!



In this, the very first American episode of our popular Travel Talks webinar series, we discuss all things NDC. Its benefits extend to all stakeholders involved, from airlines and TMCs to the ultimate beneficiaries: the travelers. NDC’s customer-centric approach, enriched content, personalization, increased transparency and seamless connectivity are transforming the way travel is distributed and purchased.

As one of the early adopters of NDC, Gray Dawes Travel is ahead of the curve in delivering the benefits it provides to our clients.

Hosted by our Chief Customer Officer, Carolann Martini, a distinguished panel of experts debate the hottest topic in business travel from three very different perspectives. Giving voice to the corporate travel buyer, the TMC and the industry consultant analyst are Carmen Smith (Global Travel & Expense Services Manager at Immunocore), David Bishop (Chief Operating Officer at Gray Dawes Group) and Andrew Menkes (Chairman at Partnership Travel Consulting), respectively.
