Bryan Williams' Tip: Ultimate Ambassadors
Ultimate Ambassadors: Those are the two words that were branded on my brain recently. My family and I just returned from a week-long trip to Bermuda and I will never forget the taxi drivers. We didn't rent a car so we relied on taxi transportation whenever we ventured off property. In total, we must have taken at least six different taxis and each one was memorable. They were a key highlight of our trip to their beautiful island, mainly because they were such awesome ambassadors. Click here to read 3.5 things the Bermuda taxi drivers excelled at that anyone (in any industry) can benchmark.
