Lionel & Human Kindness / Desperately Seeking Networking/The Wings Of Man FlyingTalkers By Geoffrey Arend

    • Aviation

For a while most people in air cargo transportation knew Lionel Van der Walt from the time he served as President of Cargo Network Services (CNS).

All of that has changed because for some time now Lionel has served as CEO of fast-rising PayCargo.

The thing about Lionel is that he is a genuine good guy.

He listens well, is not fearful of tough decisions and standing up for what is right. Most endearing, to us at least, is that he is somebody always willing to lend a helping hand.

A money guy with heart, what a concept!

Lionel van der Walt has the milk of human kindness by the quart in every vein.

COVID Will Shut Down 2021 Meetings

OK we get it that you are desperate to get out to a meeting.

But hear this  . . . it is February, a grim first anniversary of the world in the grip of COVID-19, and the pandemic is still raging everywhere.

So do the math, and have a reality check:

Truth be told, there is about an ice-cube’s chance in hell that any air cargo trade shows or live gatherings make much sense right now, or will take place in 2021.

The Wings of Man

In a world where timing is everything and COVID-19 has turned aviation upside down, the wonder is how could these folks behind this latest Eastern Airlines start-up attempt not feel snake bit?
