Bill Munro, Barrhead Travel : Reflections on a life in Travel
Tue 1 November 2016, 18:00 – 20:00 GMT
It is our pleasure to welcome the Founder and Chairman of Barrhead Travel, one of the largest independent travel agencies in the UK, to deliver the 2016 Moffat Lecture at Glasgow Caledonian University.
Speaking ‘in conversation’ with Professor John Lennon, Bill Munro will share his reflections on a life in travel telling the story of how his business grew from a small shop in Barrhead to now employing over 900 staff in 61 locations across the UK. Bill will provide insight into how his innovative approach has helped Barrhead Travel become a market leader overcoming the impact of conflict, ash clouds and recessions.
The event will also provide the opportunity to celebrate new talent, with Moffat Scholarships presented to GCU tourism and events students. We do hope that you can join us.
