The Busy Aviation Podcast

Leading from the Jumpseat with Peter Docker

February 12, 2022

Peter Docker is an accomplished aviator but also a teacher, presenter and author.  Peter spent 25 years in the Royal Air Force rising to the rank of Group Captain and commanded a frontline VC10 squadron.  Peter has used his aviation and senior management experience to teach leadership that is focused on commitment and human connection.

In episode 7, we talk about Peter's experiences gained whilst in the RAF but also his wide-ranging industry experience since leaving including time spent working alongside business guru and coach,  Simon Sinek.  It's a fascinating journey and I for one gained so much from Peter's insight into management plus some excellent aviation moments - I hope you do too!
