We all know it’s very important to have a keep a diary during business travels. We’ve got to keep the tax man happy.
So here’s what I realized on my current overseas trip. I can keep all the records I need during my normal daily business procedures without keeping a separate diary.
The logos above, I love. Simply because they create time stamped digital footprints of the work I have done on my overseas trip.
Skype: Who I had chats with from the rentoid team, for how long, when and what was discussed.
WordPress: My ‘Global Marketing’ (subject I teach) research diary for Melbourne University, with insights found and relevant articles written.
Twitter: Staying in touch with rentoid members, chatting and sharing twitpics of ideas with strong marketing implications.
Of course most of the above are done on my iphone with also has the digital time stamps the Tax office requires.
It’s never been a more awesome time to travel on business. It’s easy to share ideas, and with these tools our diary doesn’t have to be a a labourious tax afterwards, but can be an interactive digital tool which is part of the fun during the trip.
