Many executives are not only go-getters in the office, but can be active after hours as well. To them, a 10 mile run may seem like a “jog” with very little preparation. When a VIP has to fly overseas on business, they may think nothing of using spare time to rent a board and surf the waves of Ireland. Continue reading

In light of the recent tragedy at the Brussels International Airport and the tragic incident regarding EgyptAir Flight 804, more and more corporations and business travelers are realizing that travel security is not something just for the streets and subways of Europe, but a frame of mind that must be active from the moment that one […]
