What I use Linkedin for:

LinkedIn is the best platform for Aviation social media. In my field, I get to be aware of everything from Airlines to MRO / other Traders etc etc. Our industry is a fast pace one that requires to always be aware of the evolving markets.
I use LinkedIn a lot as well for finding new potential customers / suppliers and recruits. It truly is the best tool for our industry. Certainly for me 🙂

Who am I:

I have known since I was 12yo that i wanted to be travelling the world, speaking english, trading, attending conferences and shows while helping and saving money for others.
It was when I was 16yo working a summer job in a MRO business (where my dad worked as an engineer) that I realised that this was it. My calling, ma passion was for Aviation.
Since then, I always worked in this industry and made an impact on who I was meeting, working with, helping. It is always clear to me that whatever business I am engaged in, it has to be a win-win situation for everyone involved.
I always go above an beyond for each and everyone that reaches out to me, work with me. And that is why I think, I am well known and appreciated in the industry.

What I do:

I have grown a lot in my 15+years in the Industry and 6 months ago, I finally took the leap of having my own aviation trading business.
All on my own. Very scary yet so rewarding.
I offer tailored made solutions to Airlines, brokers, OEMs in surplus spare parts.
Whether it is for a bolt, an IDG or a Landing gear, I can provide an amazing service making sure, that aircraft will be flying again in no time.
Sustainability is something that I am trying my best with my company DBK AERO LTD on a day to day basis to do with a conscious mind.

Why you should follow me on Linkedin:

In the goals for 2022, is to be able to post on a weekly basis some tips on startup business, on what I do to make my business more sustainable, hoping others will follow. We know our industry is not carbon neutral (yet) – but there are ways to move towards a more eco friendly / recycling steps on a day to day basis without impacting our core business of trading. Whether it is from using special approved boxing / biodegradable tapes/ a one nfc Business cards etc etc etc

My most successful post so far is the one from last Friday 1st of April. Viewed so far over 12,000 times

I am always honest, straightforward and personable. Which I think is what people love, they absolutely love to be part of my journey and see what I do, where I go and how I manage to be where I am today. I get a lot of private messages with random questions which I make sure I always reply to.

When people can relate or help to a post, I believe that is when they are keen on commenting, sharing their journey as well. It becomes a conversation.
