In this session, your group will learn how fighter pilots achieve their missions in both training and combat. This keynote includes both a main speaker and a wingman fighter pilot and is highly customized to meet the needs of your audience.

This keynote covers four steps to Flawless Execution:

  1. Plan: Learn how fighter pilots plan for a mission using the Six Steps to Mission Planning.
  2. Brief: Communicate the plan to maximize the quality of frontline execution.
  3. Execute: Discover how fighter pilots ensure flawless execution in their missions by eliminating performance-draining task saturation.
  4. Debrief: Implement nameless and rankless feedback sessions in your squadron to guarantee maximum learning.

A half-day interactive training program that exposes your team to the Flawless ExecutionSM Cycle through an exciting experiential learning format. The Flawless ExecutionSM Cycle is a simple, scalable and endlessly repeatable process that helps individuals, teams and organizations rapidly adapt to change and improve execution and learning. Participants will utilize their learning in a simulation where each member is assigned a unique role requiring their involvement in order to create a common challenge for their entire team to debrief against. Consequently, the scenario develops teamwork and coordination. At the end of the day, participants will be equipped with tools they can immediately apply in their teams. This is the only team building program on the market that can accommodate groups of 30 to 2000.

In a presentation infused with optimism and good humor throughout, Charlie Bolden shares first-hand stories that bear witness to the possibilities that can be realized through a combination of grit, determination, and American ingenuity. Reflecting on a lifetime of service to country, Bolden offers insight into the incredible human effort that was required to implement ideas that started on a piece of paper to what would eventually become the tangible projects that would set a new agenda for the future of exploration to the Red Planet and beyond.

In a message that invites young and old alike to dream big, audiences will be inspired to consider both how far we have come so far and how much we can still achieve if we work together.

A high impact Keynote focusing on how the world’s most successful enterprises—where results truly matter—achieve peak performance by creating a culture of honest and open feedback. At the conclusion of this 45-60 minute multi-media presentation, your team will walk out the door with a clear understanding of the potential power of open feedback. They will also learn how a "feedback gap" can cripple an organization. Finally, they will see a clear path on how you can make open feedback an integral part of your culture.

All great leaders have a system for driving peak performance. This hard-charging, high-impact keynote offers your leaders the straightforward, critical tools that U.S. fighter pilots employ to lead their wingmen into the demanding environment of aerial combat. Learn how the best fighter squadrons and the best businesses in the world hire future leaders, how they then properly train those individuals, and continually promote a process of continuous improvement to stay one step ahead of the competition.

In addition to rising to the top of the aviation community, "AB" has built a business career on sales excellence. After achieving accolades as "Top Producer in the Western US" for a prominent lending institution, "AB" led a team of 40 professionals to grow revenue at a California based start-up company from $500,000 to $65M in just three years. A quintessential sales professional, "AB" will teach your people that just like fighter pilots, "great sales people are made… not born." He draws comprehensive parallels between what makes great fighter pilots and what makes great sales people. For organizations looking to develop a sales team of "Top Guns," this dynamic, interactive speech is a must!

There are many companies with great people and great strategies in the business world today.  Ultimately the difference between the winners and the “also rans” comes down to execution. During this interactive, multi-media keynote speech, AB will share the tools that fighter squadrons use to make sure that we are aligned, flying in formation and executing at the highest level every single time we fly. This highly motivating and inspiring keynote will equip your team with simple actionable tools that they can apply the very next day to improve execution and drive better results as individuals and as a team.  If your company is pursuing a path of executional excellence, this session will reinforce your messaging and provide a fresh perspective on why execution truly matters in every business.

In today’s rapidly changing world companies and their people must constantly innovate to stay ahead of the competition. While many people in business think only of Tech Entrepreneurs as the leading innovators of our day, there is no doubt that fighter pilots are constantly innovating to survive and thrive in the world of aerial combat.   As a former fighter pilot and serial entrepreneur, AB has applied the tools that fighter pilots use to stay ahead of the competition to the world of business.  In this speech, AB will share these secrets and show your audience what it takes to be the best innovators both in combat and in their industry.

 

Safety is the key to every successful mission for a fighter pilot.  No matter how fast they fly, or how accurate their bombing runs, none of it matters if they don’t come home.  Learn how the best fighter squadrons in the world train their people to execute the mission at the highest level every day, while keeping “safety first” top of mind. In this high-impact keynote, AB explains how to build a culture of safety without compromising the mission.  He will also paint a vivid picture of how to identify the series of events that can lead to an accident while offering attendees the critical tools that U.S. fighter pilots employ every day to keep their wingmen safe in the high stakes environment of aerial combat.

Spaceflight is a magical, life-changing experience.  However, there is a darker side to the adventure.  Serious medical issues, both acute and chronic, occur in every phase of flight.  These biomedical challenges are what limit our ability to send astronauts on longer and more distant missions, not the technology of spacecraft or technical systems.

Educated as a chemical engineer, Dr. Chiao first became interested in space biomedicine after experiencing changes in physiology during his first Space Shuttle mission.  A veteran of four spaceflights, he served as commander and NASA science officer of Expedition-X, a six-and-a-half month mission aboard the International Space Station.

After a fifteen-year NASA astronaut career, Dr. Chiao became the User Panel Chairman for the National Space Biomedical Research Institute, and the Biomedical Engineering Lead for the Center for Space Medicine.  Both entities are a part of the Baylor College of Medicine, collocated in the Texas Medical Center.

In this fascinating presentation, Dr. Chiao weaves the physiological effects of the space environment with his personal stories and adventures in space.  In addition, he discusses the synergy between the development of operational countermeasures and diagnostics for spaceflight, and the creation of healthcare solutions on Earth.
