Famed businessman Bill Gates recently opined on the future of business travel predicting that at least 50% of business is gone forever and 30% of in-office days are also gone. The comments came while Gates was recently speaking at the New York Times Dealbook conference.
The Dealbook conference is put on by the New York Times and features a variety of notable guests who are interviewed with the editor-at-large Andrew Ross Sorkin. The guest list this year included notables like Doctor Anthony Fauci and Micrsoft Cofounder Bill Gates.
In a wide ranging interview Gates discusses topics ranging from Microsoft’s breakup, to taxes, COVID, privacy and yes, business travel.
The core of his opinion is simple: “My prediction would be that over 50% of business travel and over 30% of days in the office will go away,” Gates noted in the interview.

Well if Bill says it, it must be true! I believe they said something similar after 9/11 when all the travel was cut back so drastically. It will be back eventually.
Lol, he’s been wrong about the entire pandemic.
Someone remind me where he did his medical studies?
Hero worship is an awful thing 🙁
I respect Gates immensely on a number of levels but I’m just not sure that I would take his perspective as gospel.
