"The Flight Centre Travel Group has been a member of the Marketing Association for a number of years. The range of opportunities available through the Marketing Association to upskill, learn, bounce ideas off and network with marketing peers is extremely valuable to us and helps push the team to think outside of just the company and travel environment."
