Flight Centre Associates, Flight Centre’s host agency solution in Canada, are taking to the highways in an epic, cross-Canada Roadshow!  We caught up with Brand Leader Lee Zanello to catch a glimpse at what they have planned as they visit nearly every province and territory in the coming months.

Growing Our Associate Base

FCA are definitely in growth mode and with all the recent change and innovation in the brand we now have the confidence to go out with the strong message that we are the best option in the Canadian marketplace for a host agency.  Whether you are an independent solo agent, a small agency in a geography not currently serviced by Flight Centre Retail or a niche business that is ready to partner with a Global brand, we are looking to add you to our growing family.

Connecting With Our Existing Associates

Support is taken very seriously at FCA and we are looking at this roadshow as an opportunity to connect with our current Associates as well. We’ll be visiting their homes and places of business, offering back up training and supporting strategies that will help them grow their businesses.  We run this business as a family and we are excited to get out to visit some members of the family we haven’t seen in a while!

Charitable Outreach

Flight Centre has a long standing relationship with Make-A-Wish Canada and I actually just recently returned from a trek in Iceland where 20 of us from Flight Centre raised over $50,000 for the organization.

I saw a great opportunity in our roadshow to be able to connect with families who have felt the benefit of working with this amazing charity first-hand.  We support the organization in many ways, but the stories behind what Make-A-Wish Canada does with that support are what we are really keen on hearing, and we will be meeting with families across the country as we are out there recruiting.

As we evolve this roadshow concept we will also be looking for other opportunities to give back and we have some ideas in mind already. Stay tuned!

Celebrating 20 Years In Canada

What better way to celebrate Flight Centre’s 20th year in Canada than by heading out and discovering this amazing country!  We’ve already driven up/down Magnetic Hill in Moncton, eaten lobster poutine in Shediac and picked up our very own dirt shirts in PEI.  We are travellers at heart and we are looking forward to hitting the road and documenting all the fun we are having along the way!
