The Bathroom Manufacturers Association (BMA) has announced that Jo Salter, motivational speaker and former Royal Air Force pilot, will deliver a keynote address on “The Growth Mindset” at the upcoming Annual Conference.

The BMA’s Annual Conference, scheduled for September 16th and 17th at the prestigious Queens Hotel in Leeds, will feature thought-provoking keynote talks, panel discussions, and networking opportunities centred around the theme of ‘building growth.’ Attendees can expect to gain valuable insights and strategies for driving innovation and success in the bathroom manufacturing industry.

Jo Salter’s remarkable journey, from being the first female fast jet pilot in the Royal Air Force to her illustrious career in business and advocacy, makes her the perfect speaker to discuss the theme of ‘building growth.’ Her inspirational story of overcoming challenges and embracing opportunities embodies the very essence of the growth mindset.

After joining the RAF at the age of 18, Jo Salter defied expectations by earning her wings to pilot jet aircraft in 1992. Throughout her military career, she shattered barriers and rose to the rank of Flight Lieutenant, earning the title of the first female fast jet pilot. Since then, Jo has transitioned into the business world, holding leadership positions in various organisations and making significant contributions to sectors such as technology and investments.

In addition to her professional accomplishments, Jo Salter is a passionate advocate for social causes, serving as a Trustee of The Royal Air Force Club and an Ambassador of the Global Angels charity. Her commitment to empowering women and youth aligns perfectly with the values of the BMA and its members.

“We are thrilled to have Jo Salter join us as our expert motivational speaker for this year’s Annual Conference,” said Tom Reynolds, Chief Executive of the BMA. “Her remarkable journey and dedication to growth and empowerment will undoubtedly inspire our attendees and spark meaningful conversations about the future of our industry.

“Following the success of last year’s conference, we are confident to be delivering another valuable two days of informed sessions and discussions for our members in 2024.”
