Mandy Hickson – Motivational March Speaker

Posted on Tuesday 23 February 2021

Pioneering female pilot turned motivational speaker and business navigating consultant, Mandy Hickson has developed an enviable skill set in the Royal Air Force that she now translates into valuable workplace tools as a speaker. We’re delighted that she’s speaking for us on Thursday 18 March at 1900 – you can book your ticket HERE.

She has recently launched her bestselling book, ‘An Officer, Not a Gentleman‘, her inspirational journey to become a pioneering female fighter pilot.

Mandy Hickson has over 30 years experience within aviation. She joined the Royal Air Force in 1994 and flew the Tornado GR4 on the front line, where she operated in hostile environments, including patrolling the ‘No Fly’ zone over Iraq. Since leaving the RAF she retrained as a facilitator and coach in human performance factors. Drawing on her experience of calculated risk-taking, decision-making under pressure and the critical role of the human in the system, she transfers vivid lessons from the cockpit to other management and leadership contexts.

Mandy is now a highly demanded keynote speaker across a range of  business sectors, where she talks with humour and great passion to inspire those around her. She has been invited to share her insights with some of the most successful organisations across the world where she describes the strategies & behaviours that can adopted when the stakes are at their highest.
