Business travel can be sterile and constricted. Deadlines and other constraints can deaden our senses. But for international management consultant & author, Pascal Dennis, business travel is the path to a deeper understanding and appreciation of life. Reflections of a Business Nomad: Stories and Poems from the Road is a heartfelt journal that affirms we are surrounded by remarkable people and their stories. Reflections of a Business Nomad takes us to Africa, South America, Europe, Asia and North America. In Pennsylvania we meet a steely third-generation Hungarian family-man haunted by family tragedy, working to save his plant; in Beijing, a kind-hearted hired driver with a taste for high-end moonshine; in Port Suez, a container company executive troubled by encounters with the heart of darkness. In Reflections of a Business Nomad Dennis is genuine and conversational, his observations personal and perceptive. Dennis captures the essence of humanity in these great stories told with subtlety and a light touch. Full of humor and wit, the book also challenges the reader to reflect and learn. Illustrated with original artwork by noted artist and draughtsman, Kirk Sutterfield, Reflections of a Business Nomad combines comedy, tragedy and philosophy, laced with a road warrior's wit. Dennis meets diverse and courageous people, fighting the good fight, often against long odds. He tells their stories with respect and style. Business travelers, students, all would-be world travelers will find Dennis observation professionally insightful, and personally enriching. It inspires readers to put away their cell phones and talk to their cabdrivers.
