Aviation leader to provide insight into competitive airline industry

Virgin Australia Chief Executive Officer John Borghetti will share insight into the competitive aviation industry at the Bond Business Leaders Forum on October 12 at Bond University.

Looking at the dynamics of the global aviation industry, including some of the challenges and opportunities that airlines are faced with today, Mr Borghetti will outline Virgin Australia’s strategic direction and detail a number of exciting initiatives the Group has embarked upon in order to ensure a sustainable future for the company.

Head of the School of Business Professor Keitha Dunstan said she was looking forward to welcoming Mr Borghetti to Bond University, adding to the list of high calibre speakers who have presented at the Bond Business Leaders Forum in the past.

“It’s an honour to have Mr Borghetti on campus sharing insight into a very exciting industry,” said Professor Dunstan.

“Mr Borghetti’s esteemed career makes him an excellent and thought-provoking presenter for the business community to learn from,” she said.

Mr Borghetti has led the strategic repositioning of Virgin Australia since joining the company in 2010. His career spans more than 38 years’ experience in aviation with much of his time spent at Qantas where he was appointed Executive General Manager in 2003.

Mr Borghetti has also served as a Director of Jetset Travelworld, Sydney FC, Piper Aircraft (USA), The Australian Ballet and CARE Australia.

The Bond Business Leaders Forum is an event, which engages the wider Gold Coast community together with Bond University staff, students and alumni and is quickly gaining a reputation as a must-attend event for local business people.

Held over a formal lunch, guests will have the opportunity to network prior to Mr Borghetti’s presentation, after which they will be invited to participate in a question and answer session.

Tickets are available for purchase at $70 per ticket, or $600 for a table of 10. For more information or to register:
