Mandy Hickson
Former Fighter Pilot

“I rolled the aircraft 120 degrees and pulled 4g towards the ground. That’s 4 times your bodyweight. The reason: a surface-to-air missile had been fired and we were its targets”. Mandy was the only female pilot on her Front-Line Tornado Squadron, flying multimillion-pound fast jets for the Royal Air Force. She has operated in hostile environments, including patrolling the ‘No Fly’ zone over Iraq. Drawing on her experience of calculated risk-taking, decision-making under pressure and the critical role of the human in the system, she transfers vivid lessons from the cockpit to other management and leadership contexts. Mandy has been invited to share her insights with some of the most successful organisations on the planet and, at the SuMMit, she will describe the Strategies, Tactics & Behaviours that she adopted when the stakes were at their highest.

Sean O’Connor
Co-Founder of STATSports

Sean co-founded STATSports some ten years ago following an impromptu conversation on the sidelines of an amateur football match in Dundalk.

Its clients include Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur as well as the Brazilian, German and English football associations. In 2018 the company secured a partnership with the US Soccer federation, which will result in the world’s largest player data monitoring programme. Teams in GAA, IRFU, NFL, and NBA also use the company’s APEX units to help drive improved performance. Sean will share the STATSports story and the lessons that he has learned along the way.
