Event description


Provide a platform for discussion and debate, to address some of the key risks to employee wellbeing in the ever expanding aviation industry. The aim is to approach the subject of emotional and physical performance from a non-clinical perspective, while also identifying some of the possible solutions applicable to our daily lives. Our focus is ultimately to support airlines management, regulators & government bodies to develop and integrate a sustainable wellbeing culture. This conference will provide a platform to merge our highly regulated industry to a more holistic approach, pivotal in maintaining safety.

Topics of Discussion

1. What are the current best practices adopted by aviation companies in developing and managing employee wellbeing culture and what can be learned from it?

2. What role do the regulatory authorities take in supporting employees’ wellbeing and how could they further assist the industry to mitigate safety risk and improve human performance?

3. What are the latest research and scientific findings of the psychological and physical human body in a flying and high-stress environment?

Our unique selection of industry leaders, expert speakers and panelists, will share their extensive knowledge, experience and insights.

Together, we aim to learn how to embrace individual responsibility for our own wellbeing and to explore means of support from management, regulators, and decision-makers in the aviation industry.
