ATLANTA, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Here's the perfect forum for any travel professional who's ever held great ideas inside out of a fear of public speaking: no front of the room; no microphones; no faces staring you down.
BCD Travel will host a Twitter chat from 11 a.m. to noon EDT on Friday, Oct. 11, in a naked bid to provoke conversation about ways of influencing business travelers. In addition to soliciting tweets from the soft spoken, the discussion also is intended to help Twitter novices gain experience using the tool.
Claudia Unger, BCD Travel director of research and intelligence, will seed the discussion, revolving around common myths prevalent in the corporate travel industry. She'll also share ideas about how travel managers can use consumer psychology to both drive down business travel costs and improve the experience of travelers during trips. The event is open to all industry professionals regardless of rank or role.
"Twitter is a great place for professionals to exchange ideas and share personal experiences," said Unger. "The 140-character message limit dictates informality and therefore a lower barrier to participate. It's less intimidating than, for example, standing up in the middle of an educational session at an industry conference."
Unger said she hopes travel industry professionals who often keep their ideas to themselves will join. Those new to the concept of a tweet chat shouldn't be intimidated: Anyone can easily learn to use Twitter.
