It's no different than when you aren't traveling. Find a time where you are available and identify a quiet location to take the call. Do it outside if you have to.

Can you schedule for Friday? If not, are you able to book a room at a client site or go back to your hotel for lunch?

Thursdays and Fridays - then fake sick. I had a terrible bout(s) of stomach flu a couple years ago 🥶🥵

Hi. I have a question. In a world where COVID is under control, how would you feel if your companies went back to being fully in the office? But maybe others were adopting a hybrid model- some days remote, some days in the office. Would it make you want to work elsewhere? How important is being able to work remote (at a location of your choice, not at client /travelling) a few days a week to your job satisfaction?
