I am excited to announce my next commissioned book. The book has a temporary “working title” of “Phoenix”.
Phoenix will be available released in September 2018
“Phoenix” will explain my values and beliefs and perhaps gives insight into all the elements of survival and success we need to face change, disruptionand uncertainty ahead. It will included the elements of leadership, marketing, management and PR as described by Tony Hughes in this excellent essay.
The timing of this next book now unfortunately requires that my Big Jets book, that was 30% completed when the QF32 event occurred, must now be pushed down the queue. Many readers have been waiting for the Big Jets book so I regret the delay.

“Phoenix” and Giving Back
Thank you for your support that you have given to Coral and me over the last few years. It has been an exciting journey travelling and meeting diverse groups around the world. Coral and I have felt especially proud and privileged to be able to help others and “pay back” the hospitality that others have given to us. Our travels enable us to connect people and muster support to help the aeronautical industry and organisations such as Disabled Wintersport Australia, the Charles Sturt University and the Uiver Restoration Trust.
I am also passionate to further the interests for STEM literacy in the minds of Australia’s government, corporate leaders and school children.
I am the 28,000th STEMNet Ambassador registered in the UK. This means that Australia should have (pro rata) 10,000 STEM Ambassadors. Professor Ian Chubb (the Australian Chief Scientist) and I have a lot of work to do. I’d be happy to be STEM Ambassador #1 in Australia and welcome all volunteers who wish to join me and lay the foundations for the future for our next generations.
This work is not my job. This work is my passion and I hope that I will be able to help and motivate others in the process.
“Phoenix” is just another stepping stone along that path.
I’m loving being head-down putting it all together and I hope that you will ultimately enjoy it.
Good health and best wishes to you all,
