Do Business and a Cruise Really Mix?

Business CruiseI just wrapped up a 5-day cruise with CEOSpace.  It’s the first time I have ever cruised with a business purpose and it was great! We had meetings planned in the mornings so we still had the majority of each day for getting off the ship and doing our own thing. 

Dinners were spent together, rotating tables each night so that we could network and do business with as many people as possible (there were about 115 of us in our group).  It was just the right mix of business, networking and fun! 

I collected several funny travel stories for my upcoming book (see for the details), talked with travel industry experts; discussed travel products and met with CEOs and entreprenuers from all walks of life.  All in all, I was very surprised that so much business got done on a cruise ship.  But that’s also the power of the CEOSpace group. 

I’ve only been off the ship a few hours and I’m already thinking about my next working cruise!
