On Wednesday the 14th April at 7pm for a 7.30pm start we have the pleasure in welcoming Kirsty Murphy the world’s first, and only, female Red Arrows pilot. She is as much at home in the air as on the ground following her almost 30-year connection with the aviation industry.��Born into a Royal Air Force family, she’d already decided her future path by 11, inspired by her father, a retired Tornado navigator. Leading both combat and commercial assignments she is used to intense, stressful and high-performance situations with her team. From flying Tornado operations in Iraq, instructing Hawk T1 pilots in their tactics, and being part of the ultimate Team, The Red Arrows.
Overcoming the stress of her father’s capture as a Prisoner of War, having to retrace his steps later on a mission of her own, and witnessing the loss of friends in two fatal aircraft crashes, she has embraced cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
This will be a fascinating evening as Kirsty will bring a refreshing perspective to the unprecedented challenges facing today’s organisations.
