Retail education from the cockpit
Outside the world of flying 737 simulators, Check Captain Carlo is also a successful entrepreneur with a background in retail and a company that specialises in supplying IT and web based systems, equipment & services to retailers (RetailCare
). He was recently to be found on the cockpit of our 737 simulator
discussing retail challenges with David Barnes from Platform Interactive
while also instructing him on the finer points of flying into Kai Tak and Las Vegas (did we mention Carlo can multi-task exceptionally well?)
David and Carlo are both members of Entrepreneur’s Organisation (EO), a dynamic network of business owners. David has written about his experience and some of the retail challenges that were discussed on his blog. No matter what industry sector you’re in, the skills associated with flying a 737 can certainly help to stretch your abilities and give you a boost to face the challenges in the world outside the cockpit.
