Arpad Szakal MRAeS
I am an Aviation & Aerospace Lead at Cellence Plus, a boutique executive search & leadership assessment firm based in London. We provide mid to senior-level executive search and leadership advisory services to a broad range of clients in the aerospace and broader transportation sectors. Prior to my career in search, I worked at the Aviation Departments of two leading international law firms in London where I handled various EU regulatory matters including passenger rights. I earned my LL.M. (Adv.) degree in Air & Space Law at the Leiden Institute which is one of the leading academic research and teaching institutes in the world, specialising in aviation law and regulation. I am also an active member of The Aviation Club of The UK, the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) and the Air League.

Jenny Edwards ARAeS
I am a University of Southampton graduate with a Master’s degree in Physics with Astronomy. During my time at University, I undertook two summer engineering placements as a Systems Integration Engineer with Archangel Aerospace and as a Development Engineer with Rolls-Royce. I have been on the Lockheed Martin Ampthill graduate scheme since Autumn 2018 working as a Systems Engineer. During this time, I have had placements in the Special Projects Team within the Modelling & Simulation group, on a Research & Development project investigating Operational Analysis tools, as the technical assistant to the chief engineer of the Ajax vehicle turret program, and currently I work as a Systems Engineer on a defensive space project. I sit on my local RAeS branch committee, have presented on a panel for emerging defence issues with the Royal United Services Institute and am an active STEM Ambassador. As part of this, I am on both the Outreach Committee and lead the Women in STEM team for Lockheed Martin Ampthill, promoting careers in science and engineering to children and young adults across the UK.
