Event Description

When you need to step up, what will you do?

At this Business Book Club event, sponsored by Rio Tinto, you’ll meet a modern Australian aviation hero you may not have heard of. 

Qantas pilot Richard de Crespigny was lauded a hero after landing QF32 safely after a catastrophic explosion above Singapore in 2010.

What could have been an utter tragedy was avoided due to quick thinking, stellar teamwork, resilience and quality leadership in a crisis situation.

Over breakfast, you'll hear from Richard on his new book - Fly! 

Fly! will enable you to perform at your best and to succeed in any situation you encounter.

Captain de Crespigny will share with you the techniques he’s built up over decades in the high-pressure worlds of military and civilian aviation, unravelling:

  • Mastering your mind

  • How to be a leader

  • Stress and succeeding under intense pressure

  • Learning from your mistakes and failing well

  • Teamwork and disciplined collaboration

  • Sharpening your skills

  • Risk-assessment

  • Being thorough

  • Decision-making

  • Readiness to speak-up

  • Crisis management

  • Building lifelong resilience and recovering from difficulties

It’s a book whose wisdom can be applied to challenges and opportunities in your workplace as well as to your life.

His first book QF32, published in 2012, was a detailed account of what went wrong in the air that catastrophic flight and went on to become an award-winning best seller.

We hope to see you all there!
