This post is part of the 2013 Keynote Vote for The Beat Live 2013, in Miami Sept. 30-Oct. 2.

What will you speak about?

Flex travel: Where to start and how to execute. Open Book and Flex travel has moved beyond the hype, buzz, debate, innuendos and debunks. Companies such as NEC, Google, Salesforce, Cognizant and the silent majority have moved towards execution.

Why should the audience listen?

Here we will outline a precise method for identifying who should be in a flexible travel program, how to provision this group (so as not to let the other horses out of the barn), how to track ROI and areas for the industry to continue to work on.

How will you avoid a sales pitch?

Focus will be on analytical approach to identifying maverick travelers and how to measure spend leakage prior to any product identification.

What insight do you want The Beat readers to share in advance, to help you prepare for your presentation?

Have any readers been successful with maverick spend identification? If so, what stakeholders were engaged and how was lost savings identified?
