In a world that isn’t always equal, this session will guide you through how to provide 
the right advice to your business travellers in a non-discriminatory or patronising 
way. Cultural, legal and often religious restrictions may pose additional risk to your 
diverse travellers and duty of care includes understanding the potential impact and 
advising your travellers accordingly.
