Change, the ever constant force.
- Concluded and implemented the largest project of my career, a regulatory behemoth that involved over a year of work and will save my employer up to $3,000,000 per year. This project dubbed the "1/50 Project" which I promise I will do a separate post on essentially changes the Canadian regulatory requirement of 1 Flight Attendant for every 40 passengers onboard an aircraft to the global standard of 1 Flight Attendant to every 50 seats installed on an aircraft.
- Purchased a new home. Stressful and exciting. I take possession sometime in June or July. I swore when I built my last house that I would never build new again... I also discovered that when I shop for a new home I am in fact very picky and having something that is a new build suits my slightly OCD personality.
- Developed and launched 3 training programs and a massive amendment to the Flight Attendant Manual. This year, I worked with my team to try something new. We "flipped the classroom" with most of the program in relation to practical and skills based activities. We have had a few classes come through already and the feedback has been very positive.
- Requested and was granted a 1 year leave of absence from work. I am very fortunate to have this opportunity, something that few people are afforded.
- Wait!? What!? ^^^ a leave of absence??? Yes, it is time to take a break from what I am doing, expand my horizons and take stock of where I am. What am I going to do? More on that at a later time too. I know, I know, why all the suspense? Well... I have to keep you all interested after all ;-)
A lot more than the above has taken place but I would say those are the "key" pieces that have occupied my time and attention.
Until next time (soon!),
