In this episode of Trade Secrets, hosts Jamie Biesiada and Emma Weissmann are joined by Christine Vincent, business technology manager for Travelsavers and NEST. They discuss how generative AI is changing the travel industry, and delve into how travel advisors can use it to improve their workflows. They also chat about how to become an effective "prompt engineer" to get a desired output.

And yes, if you were wondering, Google's Bard wrote this episode's title and description (but it was, of course, vetted and edited by the hosts).

This episode is sponsored by ALG Vacations.

  • Character: Tell the AI the role you want it to play.
  • Request: Be specific in your request and give context.
  • Examples: Provide examples of similar styles of writing (this is optional).
  • Adjustments: Ask for adjustments to fine-tune the response.
  • Type of output: Tell the AI how the response should be formatted.
