Commitment vs Assumptions

Putting the second Key Moments series together, long-time supporter,
NZ Trade & Enterprise nominated a number of candidates 
to be our series’ export intrapreneur.

Certainly, amongst them, the business of exporting aeroplanes from our shores
was a little hard to ignore, as was Pacific Aerospace CEO, 
Damian Camp’s very grounded ideas around the realities of setting up 
global markets, and most wary of the wishful-thinking traps assumption could lay.

I left his initial interview with no doubts as to the hard-won, long game of making it happen 
in places where it had never before, a firm reassurance within Damian’s same words. 
While there was no defined schedule for market breakthroughs,
there did appear to be a certainty in playing a long-game as he defined it,
based on the ideal that every potential deal had to be truly respected and apportioned its own 
unique life span.

Moreover the man loved what he was doing; whether the deal took three weeks 
or three years, the journey was a vocation in itself.
