If you close your eyes and imagine a fighter pilot, you’ll probably imagine a man. Or Tom Cruise. But as a child, Mandy Hickson saw herself in that jet and was willing to put the afterburners on to get there.

Now a human performance coach specialising in cultural change and debriefing, Mandy is a renowned worldwide motivational speaker.
