approach to ensure further education and resources are available across a variety of
subjects for our Members. It is my privilege to serve the interest of the NATM members
in the field of travel management and to contribute to professionalize and create awareness
to the added value of the corporate travel manager in particular. Being the representative
of this dedicated team of professionals drives me on a daily basis to represent their best
interest as the voice of the corporate business travel industry in the Netherlands and
in the GBTA Europe Partnership Council.
