Chris McGinnis hit the roads and skies early on and has never let up. As a kid on family vacations in the 60's, you'd find him in the airplane galley chatting with flight attendants, scoring airline wings or decks of cards and begging for visits to the cockpit. Later, Chris pursued a degree in international business....Why? Because of the opportunities to travel that such a career would bring.

His first job as a management consultant in the mid 1980's had him living out of a suitcase at hotels around the world and racking up thousands of frequent flyer miles. In the process, he lived and learned the intricacies of the travel business and then set out on his own founding Travel Skills Group, Inc, a company that trained new recruits at multinational corporations on how to be better, more efficient and productive business travelers. Eventually, those training programs evolved into popular, long-running business travel columns in the Atlanta Constitution and Entrepreneur magazine, two books published by McGraw-Hill and a gig as travel correspondent on CNN Headline News. These days, Chris blogs for Best Western, tracks travel trends and offers travel advice for a variety of media, from websites and magazines to network television and radio.
