Zoom Webinar

What do you do when 95 per cent of your customer traffic disappears almost overnight, but over 85 per cent of your operating costs are fixed?

Few sectors have been more directly impacted by COVID-19 than travel and tourism, and few sectors will be more important to our economic recovery. Learn how Winnipeg Airports Authority is adjusting its flight plan to the new realities of aviation to continue to lead transposition innovation and growth for the benefit of the community it serves.

Attendees will learn:

1. Why it really does all ‘Start with Why’
2. The importance of a diversified business model
3. How our community’s connectivity will drive our economic recovery

A strong commitment to customer and community service has guided Barry in his 40 plus years in the aviation industry. As President and CEO of Winnipeg Airports Authority Inc. (WAA) since April 2002, Barry has led the transformation of the airport to enhance our region’s connectivity. Barry serves on a number of boards, including chairing the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s Inuit Art and Learning Centre Capital Campaign, and is the first-ever Honourary Colonel of 1 Canadian Air Division.
