Damian Cottle

Consultant and Motivational Speaker

Damian Cottle has 15 years and thousands of hours of flying experience as a pilot and training officer with British Airways. He draws on his own experience, as well as using dramatic footage, alongside examples and case studies from the aviation industry that make a compelling case for a seismic change in the way many of our professions, institutions and organisations are run, and indeed the way we respond to mistakes in our day to day lives.

Damian will encourage you to question the validity of your assumptions about what works and what doesn’t, as well as commonly held perceptions of success and failure.

He will focus on key areas such as decision making, error management and a positive reporting culture. Damian will demonstrate why good communication, open reporting and honest evaluation are critical to continual improvement and success and how the aviation industry has confronted failure and learnt from mistakes, making flying the safest form of travel in the world today.

Damian’s thought-provoking, insightful and interactive sessions demonstrate our need to challenge commonly held beliefs and even embrace failure, because that is critical to ongoing development and ultimate success.
