With 185 years of history behind us and a strong future in our sights, John Menzies plc has a responsibility to set and maintain the highest standards across its global business.
Around the World in 78 Days
Following the acquisition of ASIG, Menzies Aviation held a Global Integration Conference in May 2017. The two day event took place in Las Vegas and was the first time in 15 years that its global leadership team had convened.
Mark Beaumont, endurance athlete and author, joined Menzies Aviation at its Global Integration Conference in Las Vegas and addressed the delegates on the subject of ‘success on your own terms’: the principle of setting a goal based on pushing beyond the limits of what is commonly considered achievable and not on incremental improvement of previous performance. Shortly after the event Beaumont demonstrated this principle in action by successfully circumnavigating the globe on a bicycle in under 80 days and breaking two Guinness World Records in the process. Menzies Aviation supported his journey by streamlining the check-in, boarding and disembarkation process at airports around the world, helping to save vital hours which contributed to the setting of a world record time: 78 days, 14 hours and 40 minutes.
“We Want to set goals for our business in the same ambitious way Mark Beaumont selects his challenges: not by incrementally outpacing our competitors, but by pushing the limits of what is possible.” Forsyth Black, President & Managing Director, Menzies Aviation.
