A business traveler and a briefcase

In the first segment of this episode, Accenture’s Jonathan Sullivan argues that domestic business travel is coming back around the world, particularly as companies ramp up their sales pipelines. One complicating factor, though, is that it’s hard to have face-to-face meetings when most employees still are remote. In the second segment, Edward “Ned” Russell and Madhu Unnikrishnan talk about domestic summer demand and why Americans are falling back in love with their national parks.
