Daniel Picave, Counsellor, Writer & McKenzie Friend
An airline pilot is taken ill during a flight and cannot fly the aeroplane for the rest of the journey. A member of cabin crew speaks to the passengers over the tannoy in the vain hope of there being another pilot on board. Two passengers come forward to offer their help.
The first says, "I have recently finished studying Aviation Engineering at university. I have read a mountain of books on flying and the principles of keeping an aeroplane in the sky. I understand the science. I understand the theory. I know how to fly this aeroplane as I have read and digested all the manuals." The second man listens intently to the first and then says, "I can't say I have studied aviation as I have not. I can't say I have read a mountain of books as I have not. I have some idea of the science and maybe an insight into the theory. Having said all that, I have flown aeroplanes many many times. I know what it feels like to fly an aeroplane. I know the joy and freedom of flight. I know the discomfort of turbulence." Who would you choose to pilot you safely home?
Daniel Picave is an unlikely blend of the framework of learning and training and the chaos of experience. At Daniel Picave, the team has done the training to allow us to do the job but the real strength is the experience we have. The trials and tribulations of real life. The joy of success. The excruciating pain of failure. The lightheaded giddiness of love. The emptiness of loss. The uncharted waters of mental health.
At Daniel Picave, we bring functionality to what we offer through the dysfunctionality of what we have felt and what we have experienced. Through all the complexities and the creativity of what we do for our clients, we just seek to be fair and just and deserving of your company.
We pilot your plane through turbulence, time zones and questionable in-flight catering, so we can all land safely.
