With the world getting back to some kind of new normal, many business leaders need to start their business travels again. With travel comes the need to work from cars, coffee shops, and anywhere with a Wi-Fi connection. While sometimes it might seem daunting to travel and work simultaneously, a few things can help ensure smart traveling to make the workers’ experience easier.
While travelling from one meeting to the next in a taxi, it is easy to use your lap, but then how do you use your mouse? The AboveTEK Portable Laptop Lap Desk with Retractable Mouse Pad Tray will make working on the move easier.

This laptop desk is easy to move around with as it has been designed specifically for easy storage in a backpack.
As a business leader travels, it is not guaranteed that online meetings will be delayed until a more convenient time. While traveling, you don’t want to be caught out with a bad microphone and sound, so the Anker Speaker PowerConf S3 can help with its clear microphone and sound.

This product is small and easy to place in small suitcases and briefcases.
