Paul Davison is the CEO and Founder of PPWD (People, Practice, Wonder, Develop), a human performance and safety culture development organisation committed to delivering compassionate safety across a range of industries. Seeing people as problem solvers, as opposed to being problems to be solved, has served them well within the rail, offshore wind capture and military sectors.
Prior to PPWD, Paul served in the Royal Air Force (RAF) as a helicopter pilot for 17 years. In that time, amongst visiting some amazing places and working with a broad range of highly talented individuals, he experienced operational tours in Kosovo, Northern Ireland and Iraq. This was followed by a seven-year period at the RAF College, Cranwell, where he instructed junior officers, trained trainers and was responsible for all the theoretical and practical leadership training.
Paul also volunteers with the RAF Air Cadets, with whom he is currently responsible for the risk and performance management of the Central and East Region.
He has supported the BBSA for the last few years through mentoring the Beijing 2022 Bobsleigh Olympic Team Leader and with the provision of bid support. Additionally, PPWD sponsored the 2023 Bobsleigh Push-Track Championships in Bath. His aims as a BBSA Director include generating a sustainable safe and compassionate sport for all.
Paul is married and enjoys long walks with Bonnie, a rescue dog. He thoroughly enjoys sport, and marvels at those who perform at an elite level. He lists his weaknesses as sports cars and dark chocolate.
