Imagine it - in just 60 action-packed minutes, you'll turn your group into mission-oriented, flawlessly executing business people. After an Afterburner team-building motivational speakers program, you will have your team working for the common goals set by you. They will execute your company strategy quickly and effectively. When a team works as one unit, it can do anything.

That's the power of an Afterburner Motivational Speaker - helping to improve business performance and management.

  •     Plan. Brief. Execute. Debrief. = Win! A Fighter Pilot's Secret to Business Success
  •     Mach 2: High Impact Execution Skills for Busy Executives
  •     The Power of Debriefing: Accelerating Your Team's Experience
  •     Leading Flawless Execution from the Top
  •     Get your team moving in the same direction with head-snapping speed!

You're spending a lot of money to get your people all in one place - thinking and moving in the same direction. Our message helps you really make this happen. Team building and team alignment are at the heart of our motivational speakers programs. Keeping jets in the air takes a staff of hundreds - coordinating, communicating and executing flawlessly. It takes a mindset to make this happen that many business people don't have. We help your team get it. Walking away from an Afterburner Motivational Speaker program, your team will be completely aligned behind YOUR goals, ready to take action, and improve business performance and management.

You want to create change. Your team resists change. Afterburner motivational speakers programs can help you bridge the gap.

You have a new initiative, new sales goals, or a new product launch. You name it - it's change, and change is often painful for leaders and followers alike. In our world, radical change is a fact of life. One minute the skies are blue and the winds are calm. The next minute we are under fire. It takes a different mindset to succeed in a rapidly changing environment - in combat and in your business. Our motivational speakers programs will help your team embrace change and learn to thrive and succeed in the middle of it.

Your Business, Your Culture, Your Language - Our Message.

Have your global team learn teamwork from the most successful global team on the planet.

Think about it - how does NATO, for example, execute perfectly-coordinated missions with pilots from many nationalities? They do it using the same Flawless Execution Model� our motivational speakers teach at Afterburner - the same model that can help a diverse international team execute perfectly-coordinated missions in their own business environment. With offices in three countries and clients in 18 countries, and a diverse staff of our own, we know how to make everyone feel a part of the motivational speakers program.

Afterburner motivational speakers programs offer you ROI and a way to improve business performance and management - not just entertainment.

The motivational speaker you hired last year made people laugh and cry, but did he really add value to your team? Did you even remember his speech after 48 hours? At Afterburner, takeaway value is a big deal for us. If our keynote speakers have not given you skills your team can use next week and next month, then we have failed. Every team building motivational speakers program we offer will give your team skills that last. Each member of your group will be prepared for anything - every day.

It's not a "macho" thing - it's a Flawless Execution thing.

Guys love jets - sort of like NASCAR with wings. But this is only a small piece of what Afterburner is all about. The heart of our keynote address is not about male bravado, jets, or war - it's about the process men and women Fighter Pilots use to achieve Flawless Execution and improve business performance. Women find this message as empowering as men. This is especially true when we talk about the nameless, rankless Debrief - a method we use to accelerate our experience by giving everyone a voice in the process.

We can improve the business performance and management of your team in 60 minutes with our incredible motivational speakers programs. 

If you're tired of nonproductive speakers and programs that may motivate for an hour or a day but never long term, it's time you book one of Afterburner's Motivational Speakers programs. There are plenty of great corporate comedians, motivational speakers, and celebrities that will wow you for an hour. But how is this going to improve your business performance or management? Is your team going to perform better because of it?

Flawless Execution Keynote

A Fighter Pilot's Secret to Business Success

In this session your group will learn how Fighter Pilots attack 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.

Plan — Learn how Fighter Pilots plan for a mission using the "Six Steps to Effective Combat Mission Planning".

Brief — Communicate the plan to maximize the quality of front-line execution.

Execute — Discover how Fighter Pilots ensure Flawless Execution in their missions by eliminating performance-draining Task Saturation.

Debrief — Implement nameless/rankless feedback sessions in your squadron to guarantee maximum learning.

The Afterburner Day

The Afterburner Day is an interactive, hands-on experience where your team will compare the similar situations faced in business and in air combat. During the Afterburner Day, your group will work side by side with some of America's top Fighter Pilots and learn how they excel in the business of combat.

The day begins in the main briefing room where you will learn how Fighter Pilots adapt to change, assess risk, and prepare for their mission using the Six Steps to Combat Mission Planning. Suddenly, an urgent telegram will interrupt the briefing and alert your team that they have been attacked by a coalition of hostile competitors. Your Fighter Pilots will split into squadrons (breakout groups of 15) where, with the help of their Afterburner facilitator, they will have one hour to formulate a plan to regain your market share. Leadership, teamwork, and communication will allow each group to overcome the challenges of this dynamic Mission Planning exercise. The Afterburners use SCUD missile attacks, intruders, and information overload to closely parallel today's task saturated work environment in a fun, new format that ensures a lasting impression. After utilizing these tools for planning and execution, your team will discover how Fighter Pilots learn from their mistakes through an effective debrief. The Afterburners nameless/rankless debriefs shed new light on how your associates can identify and learn from costly mistakes.

[Full or Half Day Event (5-6 hours) Group Sizes 12-1,000]

This event captures the essentials of the Afterburner Day in a compact format, focusing on planning and debriefing.

Leaning Forward is an interactive, corporate event program where your team will learn, via lecture and experiential learning, how fighter pilots strive for flawless execution in every single mission. Your group will work side-by-side with some of America's top fighter pilots and learn how they excel in the business of combat. Our Afterburner team brings these lessons to your own business environment, in living color, using a multimedia presentation, a role playing breakout session with experienced military fighter pilots as facilitators, and punctuated by an intensely climatic and motivational closing. The energy and skill training of this event will improve your group's performance at every level.
