Well done Virgin Holidays

Lance was delighted to get a call from Leigh at Virgin Holidays to say they’d just won Silver for the Learning and Development team of the year at the 2014 Training Journal (TJ) Awards.

The winners of the TJ Awards 2014 were announced at The Brewery in front of an audience of around 550 sponsors, guests and finalists.

During the evening, 16 trophies were presented and we’re chuffed to bits that Virgin Holidays were recognised for the outstanding work they’re doing. With the likes of Morrisons, Tesco, Nationwide Building Society, The RSPB and Celebrity Cruises attending the TJ Awards, the guys at Virgin Holidays knew the competition was going to be tough. So they’re all proud as punch to get the Silver Award.

As for us at Rambutan, we’re so proud to be working with them and as far as we’re concerned, Virgin Holidays have the best teams in the whole wide world.
