Our guest speaker Mandy Hickson enjoyed a long career as an RAF fighter pilot for many years at a time when women were in a distinct minority – it’s now about 11% and rising. As an informative, entertaining and motivational speaker, her strapline is “Dream it … believe it … do it” – something that should be relevant to all of us looking to make that key change in our lives.
