Agenda includes streamlining travel and expense management while maintaining duty of care at Agile Operations Summit – November 6, 2019 – Boston

BOSTON – Oct. 31, 2019Krista Pappas, SVP of Business Development at Lola.com, the Agile Travel Management™ company that provides a super simple way to book, manage, report, and save on business travel, is leading the panel discussion, “Streamlining Travel and Expense Management While Maintaining Duty of Care,” at the company’s first Agile Operations Summit on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 in Boston. Pappas is sitting down with Evan Konwiser, VP Product Strategy and Marketing at American Express Global Business Travel (GBT), Steve Isom, VP of Finance at Flywheel, and Rebecca Morrison, VP of Finance and Operations at Lola.com.

“Your company has a fiduciary responsibility to know where your employees are, but duty of care goes beyond that,” said Pappas. “Duty of care isn’t just for emergencies, it’s about looking out for your travelers’ wellbeing and experience. We’ve put together a first-rate panel to discuss the importance of duty of care in your organization as well as best practices for creating a travel policy that employees will comply with and how to streamline expense management for your team.”

No tool has value unless it is truly useful. Lola.com recommends a travel policy that takes a balanced approach to address the company’s need for timely, accurate, and complete financial information as well as employees’ need for flexibility and choice. There are also various tools that can quickly and easily streamline expense management that the panel is addressing.

Attendees also get to see first-hand how new and innovative technology can help achieve maximum ROI, get personal branding and career guidance from top performers, network with over 200 industry peers, and more.
