Dan’s role at VetLed involves providing insights into human performance gained from his perspective across multiple fields; formally as a semi-professional athlete, sports coach, pilot instructor, and currently as a commercial pilot and human factors trainer.
Across all fields, Dan has consistently observed positive change as a direct result of non-technical factors such as leadership, communication, wellbeing and in particular positive organisational culture. He has written and delivered training courses to professionals from aviation, healthcare and veterinary medicine on various performance related topics including non-technical skills, systems and processes such as checklists and safety reporting, and organisational culture. As such, the power of a just culture and the associated growth mindset forms the basis for much of his work.
Dan greatly enjoys developing his knowledge across a wide range of subjects which he believes contribute towards human performance. He has recently completed courses in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Positive Psychology and has worked closely with a team of coaches and Psychologists when developing the VetLed HALT campaign, along with other wellbeing materials and initiatives.
