Dean Canning 1985
Occupation: Airline Manager

When Nick Burman, a pilot and old friend of the Ramsays and Robinsons, arrived in Erinsborough, Paul Robinson was soon taken with the idea of becoming an air steward. Paul, however, was disappointed when he contacted the airline, only to be told by manager Dean Canning that there was a waiting list of a few months for an interview, as he had wrongly believed that Nick's influence might get him pushed to the top of the list. Though unhappy for a couple of days, Paul eventually realised that he needed to be more proactive, and went straight to the airline offices, asking to see Mr Canning urgently. The receptionist was charmed by Paul, and agreed to ask Mr Canning, who said that he would fit Paul in between other appointments. Impressed by his determination, if not by his methods, Dean Canning agreed that he would arrange for Paul to speak with the airline's personnel manager, Kathy Woodfield, who, after chatting to Paul, put him through to the next stage of recruitment.
