I thought the weekend was very productive. I was able to get to know other people in the same “shoes” as mine. I was also able to talk to people who were very familiar with traveling, and I received a lot of good tips. I thought the training sessions were very helpful. They addressed some issues I hadn’t though about, and got me to start thinking about these things before I left so there were minimal surprises.
The training is a wonderful idea. I learned so much especially about cultural differences. The training is definitely a must.
