Episode 67 Shownotes 


Joining me in the studio is fellow Australian Christian “Boo” Boucousis who is the CEO and owner of Afterburner.

Over the past 40 years the Royal Australian Air Force has trained only 400 fighter pilots, Boo was one of them. Less than 1 in 10 start-up businesses survive beyond a year. Boo has successfully launched or grown four.  

How has he beaten the statics to consistently achieve his goals? By applying the fighter pilot mindset to everything he does, every day. 

Boo really started his career as a speaker over 25 years ago, as a mission commander in the Royal Australian Air Force leading 100’s of men and women on complex missions where the margin for error is only 5 secs, all while travelling in excess of 900 miles an hour or 1,500 km/h! He has refined his craft over the past five years as a professional speaker in front of audiences ranging from 40 – 4,000 and his keynotes are some of the highest-ranked on Google. 

His successful fighter pilot career was tragically cut short after being diagnosed with a rare auto-immune disease. Confronting this significant life challenge,  Boo decided to leave his young family and start a business in war-torn Afghanistan called CTG Global, today one of the world’s largest humanitarian project support companies.

With one successful business behind him, Boo applied the skills learned as a fighter pilot to subsequent business ventures including a record-breaking inner city hotel development, co-authoring a book, acquiring and growing one of the world’s largest aviation publishing businesses, and today pursuing his true passion as the CEO and owner of world-class consulting group, Afterburner and co-hosting of “The Few” Podcast. 

His passion for helping people leaps from the stage where his message appeals not only to individuals, as groups of high performing individuals in high performing teams. Over the past few years Boo has worked with some of the world’s biggest companies, from Microsoft and VMWare, to BHP, Citibank, Woolworths, CBA and McDonalds. Focusing on aligning and optimising the performance of everyone from the frontline to the corporate office.

2.  Debriefing is crucial to any business or organization.  Here is what we want, here is where we are, here is the honest reason we are here right now and this is what we are going to do this afternoon to to fix it.
