Our next pop-up event, will be hosted by Howard Atkins, GameShift Thinking Partner, leadership consultant & flight instructor, and Paul Lang, professional photographer, helicopter pilot and instructor. Lessons from the Flightdeck is on the 14th December from 8.30 am – 10.00 am. It will be presented live from the flightdeck of a professional Boeing 737 simulator at London Luton airport.
During the session, Howard and Paul will share how lessons from the world of commercial aviation can be applied to organisations from any sector. We will explore subjects including team roles and collaboration, decision making under pressure, speaking up, creating a learning culture, and well-being. With a few stories and some simple concepts, Howard and Paul will illuminate how aviation continues to lead the world in understanding how human factors contribute to safety and success.
The session will be informal and conversational, with plenty of time to explore how the ideas presented can be adapted to apply to your own organisation. No aviation knowledge or experience is required!
