Next Event 21st December 2020 @ 1700 GMT

Safety is Freedom defines an attitude and an approach to risk management. We have talked about this at Henry’s Avalanche Talk ever since we started. Now we produce webinars to explore the subject of risk management and decision making through the experiences of successful people in adventure sports, business, finance, medicine, healthcare, military, aviation etc.

Safety and Freedom are mostly seen as opposites, but is that right? We have seen that it is by knowing that we are basing decisions on fact and evidence, for example, that we can be free to enjoy our adventure sport, to succeed in business, to invest for growth, succeed in a mission and to provide medical care. Dr. Atul Gawande, the lead author of the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) Surgical Safety Checklist, says: ‘Discipline makes daring possible’, and we need to pay attention to that.

Every two weeks (or more often) we will speak with someone with experience and insights on managing risk and staying safe so you can have more fun or enjoy more success. Much of this will come from the world of snowsports and mountain adventure. But we plan to talk with people from other sports and the world of finance, medical practice, airline pilots and business.

In this third webinar we are privileged to be able to speak with Anthony Bourke.

Anthony “AB” Bourke is a highly experienced F-16 fighter pilot who has flown tactical missions in countries all over the world. He has accumulated more than 2,700 hours of flight time in numerous high-performance aircraft and was one of the first pilots to fly his F-16 over New York City in the Homeland defense efforts on September 11th.

As CEO & Founder of Mach 2 Consulting, Bourke brings his tactical knowledge and vast business experience to the forefront of the management training world. “AB” has travelled the globe sharing his message of peak performance with over 50,000 people in nine different countries, and is currently working on a book titled “The Art of The Debrief.”

Anthony tells a powerful story about how the chain of events usually leads to the scene of the accident with a gripping tale about how he flew an F4-Phantom into power lines on a low level mission that was nearly his last. This is a potent reminder about what to look out for when things start going wrong.
