A Book about Keeping your Back Healthy on a Travel Show?
Esther Gokhale,
Author, 8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back
Believe me, I debated until I saw what happened in our home. Our son who has had a back problem for many years discovered the book (with a little guidance from Mom) and decided to try
a few of the steps. He is now hooked.

This is no ordinary healthy back book, it is a book that is filled with information about cultures and why some have more back pain than others.
Esther Gokhale is brilliant and her research is truly an interesting piece of sociology and most importantly, this book will help you, if you suffer from back pain.

Office on Mt. Kilimanjaro
Philip Mong'ateko, Operations Manager for Omong'we Travel & Tours in Moshi, Tanzania
For many of us, reaching the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro on the “Rooftop of Africa” just once is a worthy and challenging life goal. We’ll introduce you Philip, one of Kilimanjaro’s most experienced mountain guides, who has been to the top so many times he’s lost count. He tells us it’s like asking someone how many times they’ve been to their office in the last 10 years. They have no idea!

Richard Crum

John Landau

Kevin Collins

What started as a look into some interesting diverse organizations turned out to be a love fest on one thing, technology.

From credit card data to iphone apps, to the multi million dollar installations of video conferencing hardware and software, we will examine their relevancy in today's travel environments. You will meet for the first time John Landau from TATA Communications. His enthusiasm and knowledge will have you on the edge of your seat and frequent contributor, Richard Crum, Chairman of the Assn of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE) Centre for Research and Education and who was awarded on the 25 most influential travel executives will join me to talk about ancillary fees and the outcome of the ACTE Educational conference in Chicago two weeks ago.

We will then take you to San Francisco to meet one of the partners of SutroMedia where we will learn more iphone app terminology and how you can create (excuse me, I mean, author) your own iphone app!
