Happy New Year!

We've now been established over a year, and 2017 proved to be an exciting one - new clients gained and in discussion, presentations at 2 prestigious conferences and 2 papers published in influential publications. We are also at or near the top of Google rankings for aviation psychology and aviation psychologists

2018 so far looks like it might continue the same way - we've active discussions with a number of new clients and hope to present papers at two upcoming aviation safety conferences, in addition to our continuing work on aircrew psychologcal assessment and mental health and wellbeing.

I enjoyed presenting at the excellent CIEHF conference last week at LGW - the topic as you can see was Big 5 personality factors and safety in maintenance engineers. The talk was well received with plenty of discussion afterwards - picture courtesy of Andy Evans of Aerossurance. Next up is my presentation at the EASA Rotorcraft Symposium in Cologne the first week in December.
