The Aussie from South Africa, Ken Robertson – Chief of E-Commerce at NAQEL Express based in Saudi Arabia

Ken Robertson, a big man with a big responsibility. The ref to down-under was a Rugby joke! Ken has faced many challenges because of CV-19, from the slowdown from China to the rapid increase in demand and business flow into KSA. Worst case scenario strategy to best-case scenario tactics. Operational pressures, segregation of respective employee teams as well as managing a new group of ‘Crowd Source’ delivery agents. We talk about risk, succession and segregation of key workers and performance triggers. A very candid and well-informed account of challenges and opportunities. Ken was also one of the first Senior Managers to contract CV-19 and allows us into his thoughts and experiences during the illness and his time in hospital. Nice session Ken – really appreciated your time._x000D_

EPS 121: Saturday with Chris Notter and Steven Dickson (part 17)

Another Saturday – swapped to Sunday because of some ‘family time opportunities’. This week’s show we cover the dilemma of how hard to push from within and why, in the business commercial/employee survival challenge. Should there be a new way in which to evaluate a company’s true position and why we need the best possible minds to steer our industry out of this crisis. For everyone displaced from their careers, let those still involved remember and commit to their return, ‘Be Good, Be Quick, Bring us back’. How do we keep the doors open and access to knowledge and companies flowing to support, comfort and motivate? _x000D_

Creation of a ‘ Recovery Club & Small Business Cooperative’. E-Commerce waves are coming and will keep on doing so. The question is, ‘should the big guns also take care of smaller alternatives to maintain a production line of new ideas and innovation as well as alternative options? Collaboration and again a sense of ‘Crisis to Care’ approach. _x000D_

The LADY in RED Liz Moscrop – CEO & Founder Gear Up TV. Great story behind the title of one of Chris de Burgh’s famous hits.

Liz has a passion for what she does and certainly manages to put the ‘zing into your aviation video communication’ by creating quality airtime. We both name some great colleagues of the industry in a rollcall of impressive professionals. We discuss the various initiatives such as the 90-day projects, Aviation trade shows (of the past) live stream shows and something close to my heart – story creation. A new initiative as a ‘zoom coach’ and giving a strong message of “showing up as leaders” – Liz enjoys being the creator of magic and appreciates the hat-trick of needs-Price, age, the time associated with private aircraft selection and investment. Great delivery of reference and description as exercised by ‘Aviation Glastonbury’. Great time Liz. _x000D_
