With experience at the cutting edge of leadership, team work, high performance and risk management, Jas will describe the inner-workings of the world’s premier formation aerobatic team. He has led the Red Arrows across 4 continents delivering over 500 public displays to tens of millions of spectators. However, although recognised as world-class, the Red Arrows have to deliver this consistent output under continual change - each year the most experienced 3 pilots leave; there is a 33% turnover of key personnel. Consistent results are a function of culture, behaviour, process and leadership rather than individual stars. His high impact, entertaining and memorable presentations will inform, engage and inspire, with messages that will have impact far beyond the event itself.
TEAM DEVELOPMENT SEMINARS
Jas also offers the opportunity to deliver exciting ½ day seminars tailored to, and aligned with your corporate objectives, which involve a unique and highly engaging insight into high-performance organisations. Through a powerful blend of dramatic in-cockpit video footage, interactive group exercises and real-life case studies, the team development seminar is an execution-focused interactive event, which gives delegates a completely fresh perspective on team and organisational performance, based on the behaviours and processes used by fighter pilots when working in complex cross-functional teams. The aim of the event is to motivate and inspire delegates via a high-impact intervention, to concentrate their minds on your major execution issues from a unique perspective, introduce some tangible tools which can be applied the next day and act as a genuine catalyst for performance improvement.
