Embracing and driving change as a young professional in aviation

“I can see the positive impact of business aviation every day, and nothing boosts business more than happy customers,” says Emilie Stüve, Operations Control Center at DC Aviation and one of the 10 delegates to represent the business aviation industry at One Young World 2019.

To me, our industry is more personal – there is nothing like being there in person, shaking hands and looking each other in the eye. Especially when making deals, not even digital communication tools like video chats are as effective. When it comes to connecting distant regions, facilitating investment and the growth of business across the world, there is no tool quite like business aviation.

There is nothing like being there in person.

As young professionals in the industry, we have the opportunity to embrace and drive change. Why? Because innovation and different views can disrupt multi-billion-dollar industries overnight. If you’re too set in your ways, you won’t see it coming. A big part of ‘seeing around corners’ is being proactive about change when things are already working well, something that young people can bring to their teams.

At One Young World, I’m looking forward to learning about how other industries have changed in the short- and long-term, and hope to be able to bring those best practices back to drive change in my own community and business.


One Young World is a global charity that gathers together young leaders from around the world, empowering them to make lasting connections and create positive change.
