Safety and Security of travelers consistently tops the list of travel management priorities, and it will be a key focus as firms prepare for the return to travel.

It has been well established that organizations need to demonstrate a duty of care to their staff when they travel on company business; however, duty of care can mean different things depending on who you ask.

ISO 31030 establishes clear guidelines for assessing risks related to travel – whether physical, hygiene or cyber related – and how to manage and benchmark those risks. It will remove the guesswork and provide clarity in an area that’s never been more critical for companies and their travellers.

This has many benefits that will help buyers and risk managers develop an efficient and unified process to ensure the safety and well-being of travellers.

This course brings together experts in travel risk management to provide clear guidance on risk and a practical step-by-step guide on how to implement the policies and procedures to run a robust travel risk management program in your own organization.

“Travel Risk Management Bootcamp was one of the most informative sessions I’ve attended in years. Regardless of where you are in your program maturity – there is something to be gained by this session.”

“Our current travel risk program is secure and effective through the pandemic and even before the pandemic, but with the new ISO 31030 that was released the GBTA Travel Risk Management Bootcamp allowed me to gain knowledge of areas that we may be weaker on and need to strengthen. The course was very interactive and presented information that was immediately actionable. The course gave me the tools to develop a project plan to ensure my company is doing everything we can for travel risk management.”

“This training provided the basic expectations for a corporate travel risk management program. Upon completion, I recommended that members from our corporate Security team also attend this training. We plan to work together this year to make some changes to bring our program into better alignment. I highly recommend this course for Travel Program managers and Security personnel responsible for traveler safety.”

“The Travel Risk Management Bootcamp is well organized, presented in an appealing and entertaining way. The step-by-step approach and interactive “translation” from content to action helps to better understand potential dangers, impact and consequences. Notwithstanding 45+ years in tourism and the airline industry, the bootcamp offered me valuable new insights.“
