Read our tools for working on-the-go suggestions and take a step towards becoming a road warrior who works efficiently on the go.

Now that you have the right equipment, how can you make the most of it?
Getting the right tools for working on-the-go effectively is only half the battle. Follow these top tips to maximise your potential:

• Pack your power cord and coil them neatly in your bag to avoid clutter
• Before an impromptu conference call, check the internet speed beforehand so not to risk your image of professionalism and time if it does not work
• Be creative in your spare time. Travelling can be tedious so try and make it as useful as possible by tackling tiny, manageable tasks.
