Description

What is....an Officer but not a Gentleman????? It is...Mandy Hickson! Mandy dreamt of being a fast jet pilot when she was just 13. She went on to lead an entirely male dominated Front Line Tornado Squadron, flying a multi-million pound jet in hostile territory for the Air Force.

In this week's episode Gwen has the immense privilege of talking to Mandy one-on-one about her incredible journey to become one of the UK’s first female, fast-jet pilots.

You can read about how Mandy overcame obstacles and developed the skills needed to succeed in a demanding and unusual career in her fascinating book, An Officer Not A Gentleman. Find out more about what she does now - helping businesses and inspiring leaders - on her website.

Every week in the Gwen Gets To Work podcast, Gwen finds out about what a different adults does all day at work. Visit our website for past episodes and videos: https://gwengetstowork.com/

Help us out! Gwen is fundraising for some better equipment so that she can get out and about and interview adults like Elaine at their places of work, once it is safe to do so. Here is her Go Fund Me link.
