If you do not enjoy solving a problem, you will never solve it! Having enjoyed the past 20 years of my professional life, I believe that solving problems help you to learn something new - and no one should ever stop learning since it could change your life. Personally, when I'm learning I feel it's enhancing my outlook in life.
I am very enthusiastic to be part of AirBusiness Academy and I look forward to sharing my experience with the Airbus community and to learn something from you!
