Meet the GHI team

3/25/2020

The UK might be in lockdown, but the GHI team are keeping calm and carrying on from home offices across the land. How are they getting on? This week, Alice Williams our Delegate Services Director, shows her Dunkirk spirit…

Q- How have you been affected by the coronavirus pandemic?

Alice: “It is strange having sat down at the start of 2020 and mapped out a very busy year of travelling, exploring and executing GHI events in Buenos Aires, Singapore and Cape Town, to now being on day seven of working from home with a very empty upcoming BA travel schedule. We have had to be reactive to the changing face of the aviation and events industry. We all look forward to the time when we can connect again and share some good times in whatever part of the world, we find ourselves in.”

Q- Talk us through your new home office?

Alice: “I have always wanted to work in an office where I can bring my four-legged best friend (Carlos, my handsome Cocker Spaniel). Now, he is my new assistant and is keeping me company every day and is the star cameo on video conferences (but don’t tell the other GHI furry friends that!).

Q- How have you been ensuring strong communication with the rest of the GHI team over the past few weeks?

Alice: “We are very fortunate as a team to have the facilities to work from home. We have implemented daily video meetings via Zoom to better collaborate, while ensuring the safeguard of everyone's health and safety. Communication really is key in times like these.”

Q-What’s your message to GHI delegates during this time?

Alice: “Working together, sharing expertise and best practice has always driven and brought our tight knit industry community together. My message to you would be to stay resilient, keep laughing and don’t be a stranger. We are always here for you. Uncertainty can make it challenging to see the end of this situation, but (hopefully!) things will be back and better than ever soon!”

Q-Any tips on keeping our spirits up?

Alice: “The moto in the GHI camp is good vibes only! Send us your stories, we want to hear about your teams working tirelessly, day and night, your unsung heroes, how you are staying connected? We may be on the ground for now but let’s elevate aviation in its greatest time of need.”
