A fighter pilots’ workplace is like no other. They operate in rapidly changing, complex and sometimes hostile environments, yet they consistently excel in achieving successful outcomes, they’ve developed the winning habit. Each fighter pilot is the product of a $15 million training program that pushes them to the limit of mental and physical performance. They’ll share with you the four key secrets to increasing your performance and success rates by three times, what they call “3X”.
Who is afterburner
Afterburner lead speaker, facilitator and coach Christian "Boo" Boucousis was a fighter pilot for 11 years before becoming an successful entrepreneur and published author. With a passion for start-ups, growth and what makes people tick, he delivers a powerful human message through his company Afterburner Australia. What's the message? How to optimise the performance of all the people within your organisation by using the lessons learned in an environment that tests human physical and mental performance at the edge of the envelope, a high-performance jet fighter Squadron. What's the secret? A simple four step process that creates clarity, motivation, continuous improvement, agility and accountability for you and your team.
Whether you are a leader or a valued member within a team, the methods employed by fighter pilots consistently deliver results, whether you are a high-performance sports team, a small organisation or a large complex corporation, there is something for everyone in an Afterburner experiential program. Why do Boo and his pilots love working with you? Because the feedback is always the same:
"Without doubt the best presentation we've ever seen"
"We've never experienced that level of engagement from our team before"
"We still use the fighter pilot methodology three years later"
“I don’t really get into inspiring keynotes, yours was different, I was inspired!!”
Afterburner keynotes and experiential programs are ranked 4.9/5.0 on Facebook and Google by hundreds of participants, not only is Afterburner the 'safe' option for your next event, the pilots will leave a lasting impression on your team and drive genuine results long after your event.

Having been involved with many "team building" type exercises before, I can honestly say yours was the most relevant, practical, entertaining and thought-stimulating program I have ever seen.

The Afterburners Team obviously spent an incredible amount of prep time getting to know our business and our competition. This enabled them to walk and speak our language, which earned instant credibility with our senior leadership team. It opened the door to some great discussions around improving how we work together - the result of which has already made us a more effective team.

I can honestly say that the seminar significantly exceeded expectations and was the highlight of our meeting. We enjoyed the fact that the seminar was delivered in a very professional manner, and had the right blend of pertinent business focus in a light-hearted and fun way.

The impact that the Afterburner seminar had was incredible. Not only was it the highest rated segment of our annual meetings, but our store managers have begun to apply what they learned on a day to day basis. The Afterburner seminar received a standing ovations after every one of its programs. This has never happened before

Even four months later, people are still talking about Afterburner seminars. Your portion of the meeting really had a big impact on our managers. Plan, brief, execute and debrief are terms we hear around the office now. I feel we have built a great working relationship and I look forward to our next project together.
