Virgin teams up with Flight Centre for money-can’t-buy workshop

Flight Centre’s business travel arm has partnered with Virgin Australia to put on a money-can’t-buy workshop to help businesses build back better.

Flight Centre Business Travel (FCBT) and Virgin joined forces to deliver the workshop for 10 individuals across five businesses sharing insights, advice, and mentoring from business leaders, fellow entrepreneurs, and experts.

The winners were picked at random via a draw and came from Manteena Pty Ltd, Aury Australia, Acid Plant Management Services, Lauxes Products, and QBD books, with the event taking place at Flight Centre Travel Group’s Global HQ at Southpoint in Brisbane.

Cameron Harris welcomes the Virgin Australia Money-Cant-Buy winners

“A travel manager is now more critical than ever and we’re incredibly passionate about helping small and medium businesses go places – we take great pride in delivering a one-on-one personal service to help our customers navigate the new normal,” said Cameron Harris, FCBT’s general manager.

“We’re pleased to have partnered with our good friends at Virgin Australia and we put together an exclusive, full-day workshop with some of Australia’s business greats, all with the aim to arm our 10 lucky winners across five businesses with the tools to come back bigger and better post-pandemic.

“Small to medium businesses put in the hard yards – they look for opportunities, learn from their mistakes, think big, take risks, and build a network – and we’re very happy to assist their journey.

“We see ourselves as travel partners and by being part of one of Australia’s largest and most trusted organisations, it allows us to offer our SME clients a lot more than just managing their travel.”
