"Year after year ISTAT has grown as the premier forum for connecting people looking for aircraft delivery funding with those willing to invest in them. From its start as an organization representing the lessors and traders of used commercial aircraft, ISTAT today has grown to over 3,500 members, and ISTAT Americas attendance topped more than 1,600 for another record year," said Jep Thornton, ISTAT president.

A selection of ISTAT Americas conference presentations are posted online for members. These are also available in the mobile app. Click here to download the presentations.

More than six years after receiving a downgrade from the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for air safety issues, the Philippines has regained the much-coveted Category 1 status from the agency, meaning Philippine carriers can now add flights and services to more points in the US.

Professional Development
What does it take to build an extraordinary company? An inspiring brand? An infectious culture? Over the years, I’ve worked with hundreds of visionary entrepreneurs on issues such as brand strategy, positioning, leadership, and culture. While the operational and tactical specifics may vary, there are some inspiring tips that I’ve learned along the way that transcend industries.
Most of us strive to become leaders. We want to do something great, be respected by our peers, make more money and acquire more responsibility. Overall, we want to make a difference at our job. However, most of us simply don’t know the proper way to gain heightened respect, confidence and admiration from those whom we work with.
Gallup Business Journal
In its 2013 Absence Management report, CPID, an association of human resources professionals, states that stress is a leading cause of short-term and long-term absence. But stress can cause far worse problems and can even be fatal. The suicides of Swisscom CEO Carsten Schloter and Zurich Insurance Group CFO Pierre Wauthier were both attributed to workplace stress. This topic has been of particular interest to Gallup, as the company's research reveals that there is a significant relationship between work, stress, and health -- and that disengaged workplaces predict an increase in employee depression and anxiety.
For thousands of years, humans have conducted business across geographic, political and cultural boundaries. You’d think it would be even easier now — in today’s "socialized" world — to communicate with colleagues and clients in other countries. But too often, we are careful about what we say and are far less attuned to how our words can be misunderstood because of cultural biases.
