EP. 30 Ramona Reynolds - Remembering Your Unique Presence

May 12, 2022

Do you remember who you were when you were a little kid? Do you remember all of the unique gifts that you put away? Do you have unique presence? I only hang out with people who appreciate my unique presence. What’s your greatness? Do you allow yourself to speak it? Like, out loud, with words and stuff?

EP. 29 Trish Machiri - Walking Her Talk - Aircraft Maintenance to Aviation Entrepreneur

EP. 29 Trish Machiri - Walking Her Talk - Aircraft Maintenance to Aviation Entrepreneur

April 10, 2022

After being silenced by “well meaning” people who presupposed that Trish’s clients would not share her values; and after being told that by speaking her truth her business would be ruined, Trish Machiri found the courage to let the words come again. After a literal break, she rose to build an aviation business, with a focus on safety, that is worthy of her best clients who not only share her values, but also her understanding that jets love to fly. It’s almost embarrassing how much of a fan-girl I am here because I admire Trish so much for her courage, tenacity, experience, and willingness to share despite all the people who told her all the ways she would be better off staying quiet. A short introduction here is not expansive enough to cover all the ground Trish and I covered together. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.

You can connect with Trish at www.charterly.ca or on LinkedIn.

EP. 28 Ramona Reynolds - Setting the Intention: Speak Your Truth

EP. 28 Ramona Reynolds - Setting the Intention: Speak Your Truth

April 6, 2022

Speaking your truth. What does that mean to you? When I was 38, I got a tattoo on my back that said: “Speak Your Truth”. I didn’t want it to be visible to everyone, but I wanted to be able to see it when I looked in the mirror. I wanted it to be a reminder. And then I ignored it. Now my friends, it’s GAME ON! Some truths must still be spoken – let’s set that intention and see where that leads us.

EP. 27 Ramona Reynolds - Total. F**king. Fail. How not to mentor and other brave mistakes

EP. 27 Ramona Reynolds - Total. F**king. Fail. How not to mentor and other brave mistakes

March 30, 2022

We are going to finish strong in March. Thank you for taking the time to explore the many aspects of MENTORSHIP with me. I thought today it might be fun to debrief on a recent adventure where I totally blew it as a mentor and trusted ally. Total. F**king. Fail. I am committed to doing better. I thought I was going in as the teacher here but, in fact, I was the student.

EP. 26 Ramona Reynolds - The Sky Is Just The Beginning

March 21, 2022

I’m not gonna lie – I edited this speech. There it is. That’s the truth. I edited it because I called myself an “old lady” more than once in this talk. More than twice. That’s not going to fly! That is not kind to me; or true. So that’s that.

Continuing with our exploration of mentorship this month, I was asked to speak to inspire young women in aviation and I came away completely inspired by them. What I wanted them to take with them: 1) You are powerful and you know how to feel and be fully empowered; 2) You are valuable. And I AM talking about money so start asking for what you are worth; 3) You have options – lots of them; 4) The sky is not the limit – it’s just the beginning; and 5) You are right on time!

EP. 25 Colin Williamson and Bill McMillan - Friends Who Fly

March 13, 2022

In keeping with our exploration of mentorship, let's talk about building confidence through community. Why is mentorship important as a new pilot or student pilot? From time-building to confidence building, what are the benefits of a formal mentorship program from the perspective of both a mentor and a mentee (or two)? Today I am joined by Colin Williamson and Bill McMillan who are both members of the Victoria Flying Club’s mentorship program who are going to answer those questions.

EP. 24 Christy Pratt- Realtime Court Reporter. Teacher. Leader. Mentor.

March 6, 2022

Today I am joined by Christy Pratt who is a visionary business leader and realtime court reporter in Vancouver, British Columbia. She has reported several landmark aboriginal trials and constitutional challenges, many of them exceeding 150 trial days.

Before becoming a court reporter 25 years ago, Christy was a legal assistant and before that she worked in her family’s restaurant business. Christy ran her own court reporting firm in British Columbia for 15 years and she acquired four additional firms over the past 2 years. In July 2021, all five of these firms joined Veritext Legal Solutions who provide services across North America, and Christy is now the vice president for the Canadian Region.

Christy is passionate about mentorship, and she embraces a growth mindset. She works with an executive coach, and her word for 2022 is ‘mindful.’ She finds joy and balance in cooking and travel, particularly when blended together! She will be going to a cooking school in Italy in October with her partner Erik, who lives in Washington State.

EP. 23 Ramona Reynolds - Don’t Let Anyone Ever Tell You How Your Future Is Going to Go

EP. 23 Ramona Reynolds - Don’t Let Anyone Ever Tell You How Your Future Is Going to Go

March 1, 2022

I’d like to take you for a walk down memory lane. My intention over the next month is to engage in conversations that touch all aspects of MENTORSHIP in our professional worlds and our personal worlds.

When I was framing this month’s intention I realized that I was going to have to do some oversharing but, not only that, I was going to have to examine situations from many sides, and I should take that opportunity now, or I would be fixed in my judgment which is an easy place for me to live. REAL. F’ING. EASY. place for me to live.

EP. 22 Mike Doiron - Mind the Gap!

EP. 22 Mike Doiron - Mind the Gap!

February 15, 2022

This guy LOVES aviation! Today I am speaking with Mike Doiron who has been involved in many aspects of aviation for 50 years. The truth is that this short introduction doesn’t scratch the surface of his career accomplishments and experience in aviation.

Today we get into the gaps in flight training; concerns about the level of competency of new aviators; and how we address those concerns. We discuss the role of Transport Canada; the difference between Transport Canada of today and in the 1980’s and 90’s; the experience of today’s regulators; and what he would watch for if he was a regulator today.

Mike started as a dispatcher and progressed to Chief Flight Instructor and Chief Pilot of the Moncton Flying Club. He spent 19 years with Transport Canada where he held various positions including Superintendent of Flight Training, Regional Director of System Safety and National Director of Aviation Safety Promotions.

In 1998, he left the government to take the helm of the Moncton Flight College as C.E.O. and Principal. He held that position for twelve years until leaving in July 2010 to start Doiron Aviation Consulting, which he still operates today working with aviation clients across the globe. He is the developer of the SMS Tookit, a program being used by the Air Transport Association of Canada as the model SMS structure for their various operators.

Mike has received numerous awards throughout this career. He has flown over 50 types of aircraft. He has held the position of Senior Vice President of Safety Management Systems for Strategic Aerospace International Ltd. He sat as Chair of the Board of the Air Transport Association of Canada, and as a Director on the New Brunswick Aerospace and Defence Association Board, and is currently the Atlantic Canada Regional Representative of the Canadian Council of Aviation and Aerospace.

Mike is also an accomplished and avid photographer.
