Podcast – Episode 44:
The ponderings of a tech leader in the airport industry 

Leadership insights from the CIO of MAG (Manchester Airports Group)

Today we get a peek behind the scenes of an industry so many of us rely on: the airport industry. In this episode, we get the inside scoop from Nicholas Woods, the CIO of the Manchester Airports Group (MAG).

You can absolutely train people to develop their skills. To give them the experience that helps them to do their job. But you can’t necessarily train people in terms of having the right attitude, having them want to take ownership, wanting to drive themselves forward.

Nicholas Woods, the CIO of the Manchester Airports Group (MAG) joins us to share his leadership journey. The challenges this industry is facing and aspirations for the future. To get an idea of Nicholas’s leadership scope, MAG owns and operates Manchester, London Stansted, and East Midlands Airports in the UK. Not one, but three airports. 

Key takeaways from the podcast are: 

  • Examples of leadership that worked and didn’t work 
  • Designing, operating and maintaining tech in an airport  
  • Aspirations for the future of the industry
