Another get together and catch up with Steven Dickson.

Perfect storm –
• Lack of specialist skills
• Lack of employee numbers
• Lack of equipment
• Lack of services – China/Covid, Ukraine Impact, Inflation, drop in demand, drop in production
Yet – should be the perfect time for recovery and confidence

Some challenging times ahead
Crisis Leadership is now a focus much in need — how to navigate around the volume of disruptive events.

• Bonuses
• Compressed working weeks
• Incentives to join
• Retention bonus etc.
Is this the way forward?
Question – ‘Why is all of the above not linked to service levels, added-value services, quality, satisfaction etc..
Being busy is not necessarily best!

How do we change and what should be changed first before the cascade effect is expected over the next 9-18 months..

Also covered –
• Qantas –
• Project Sunrise
• TFL – Cross Rail
• Odessa Runway damage
WALK FOR LIFE!
