Cologne to host TIACA’s next Air Cargo Professional Development workshop
MAY 7, 2015 - TIACA’s next Air Cargo Professional Development Workshop, aimed at growing management skills for air cargo professionals, will take place in Cologne, Germany from 22nd to 24th June 2015. The Workshop Program, designed by Strategic Aviation Solutions International (SASI), will give participants an appreciation of the entire air cargo supply-chain and the component sectors by encouraging discussion and the sharing of perspectives, as well as providing practical advice and insight. “TIACA’s Program has already helped some of our industry’s brightest young professionals in the Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, and across Europe, and more recently South Africa,” said Doug Brittin, Secretary General, TIACA. “We are very pleased to be bringing our expertise to support the next generation of air cargo leaders in Europe.” The Cologne workshop will be led by SASI’s Lilian Tan and Charles Edwards, and will feature practical information sessions, as well as discussion, debate, and a chance to network with peers as well as senior industry veterans. Topics will include market and competitive analysis, brand management, revenue management, understanding and analyzing financial statements, business ethics, and leading teams. TIACA’s most recent workshop took place in Johannesburg, South Africa, in February and was attended by 18 students. “The course challenged the way I think and made me realize that a change starts with me,” said Elize Werner, Branch Manager, Capetown, DN Freight, South Africa, who took part. “I strongly suggest that more people attend. I can apply the knowledge to my day-to-day work.” TIACA will be announcing further Workshop dates soon.
