Afterburner is a high performing team of men and women who are real-life fighter pilots or military aviators. The Afterburner pilots are passionate about helping people learn and apply the techniques they use every day to achieve a consistent mission success rate of 98%.

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”.

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:

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. The fact Afterburner continues to grow and expand its programs after 22 years is a testament to the quality and durability of the content.

The Afterburner team takes you on a journey, immersing you in their unique world. Through storytelling, video and music, you'll discover what it truly takes to be a fighter pilot. You'll soon realise these fighter pilots are everyday Joe's, who have transformed and developed into highly capable individuals through training and mastery of this very special methodology. Only 15 fighter pilots graduate from the Royal Australian Air Force's training program every two years talk about gruelling! Afterburner demonstrates that no matter who you are, you can sustainably exceed your expectations and goals. You can win. What makes the Afterburner fighter pilots particularly adept at maintaining a clear focus on objectives in the midst of complexity, is how they maintain situational awareness or clarity each day. Afterburner will introduce the concept of situational awareness and how to achieve it by using their four-step FLEX Method.

On Time On Target

On Time On Target

At Mach 1.5, encased in 20 tonnes of metal, fighter pilots don't have much time to think. They prepare on the ground to take on anything in the air, then get their job done.

Former fighter pilots Jim 'Murph' Murphy and Christian 'Boo' Boucousis have built on the techniques the air force has honed for 60 years. You'll make clearer decisions, and put them to action with more speed, more precision, more safety, and more success.

Flex's proven plan-brief-execute-debrief cycle is the original and most widely tested 'agile' approach, getting you better and better with each mission. It cuts through noise and complexity, engages people, and helps build an honest and open working culture. Flex also sets your purpose and destination, so that when your team gives their all, they'll deliver for your organisation.

The New York Giants used Flex to finally crack the Super Bowl. PepsiCo used Flex to take on Coke. You'll see how some remarkable businesses have relied on Flex, and some remarkable pilots have taken Flex to their businesses. You'll also feel what it's like to be in the seat of a Hornet, and why Flex is so appreciated by the pilots it keeps alive.
