Teleconference 42 With CWT President And CEO Kurt Ekert

February 24, 2021 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm EST

Thanks for your interest! Sorry, we’re out of spots for this event. Look for the recording in our upcoming coverage.

No one has all the answers but it’s nice to connect. Join The Company Dime’s community for a unique conference call on what’s new in travel management, what’s new in business life and what’s in the news.

Scroll down and click “Going” to register and join us by phone Feb. 24 at 12 p.m. EST as we and co-moderator Kathy Kaden get CWT president and CEO Kurt Ekert’s take on all the business travel issues of the day.

It’s difficult to talk to Ekert and not learn something about the travel business. That’s why we’ve asked the longtime industry exec — who also currently serves as vice chair of the U.S. Commerce Department’s Travel and Tourism Advisory Board — to appear for multiple interviews, a podcast, a radio segment thing and other speaking engagements. (We even tracked down the transcript of his late 2019 appearance as a witness in federal court … redacted but still informative!)

Ekert’s always game.

And so is Kaden, veteran of several big company travel management roles and a consultant since 2018 for clients including Delta Air Lines and Okta Inc.

Join us and bring your questions!
