FLY!

On 4 November 2010, a catastrophic explosion rocked an A380 flight en route to Sydney. In the cockpit, Captain Richard de Crespigny and his team worked tirelessly to land the plane safely. None of the 469 passengers or crew were hurt.

In his new book FLY!, Richard reveals for the first time why he was able to react so calmly in a moment of crisis and the lessons he has learnt from that near-air disaster. He also explains how they apply to business — and life, because when you need to step up, what will you do?

Meet the author and hear his story and advice at this exciting free event. Tickets are strictly limited.

With support from Penguin Random House. Book sales provided by QBD Books Robina.
