Keynote: LEADERSHIP

In this presentation Jerry acknowledges the interpretive and emotional elements of leadership and decision-making, offering insights garnered during his time as a search and rescue pilot with the Royal Navy. He speaks about the significance of quick decisions, clear communication and – perhaps most importantly – living with the consequences of your decisions and the leader you have become. Jerry will also speak about the key elements to a successful team and the extraordinary things that those teams can achieve.

Within just a few months during early 2015 Jerry’s three decades of work and experience in flying on major cinema and television productions almost entirely vanished into thin air; the DRONES had arrived and taken over. Jerry tells of the most extreme form of disruption; when the career he’d built simply ceased to exist. He talks about what he had to do to recognise it, to address it, and the changes he had to make to enable him and his team to move forward positively.
