Be prepared to go outside of your comfort level. I learned that if you are open to new ideas and activities then you will really enjoy your time!
It is important to go outside your comfort zone and explore! It's amazing how much you'll learn from strangers, and people in general.
The most rewarding part was having access to be able to ask questions of the many different executives that gave us tours. When we visited all the different companies, we were welcomed by the top managers there and given personal tours by them, along with a Q&A session afterwards. This was very helpful in getting a real essence of what the companies were trying to accomplish with their strategies.
