Justin joined the RAF aged 23, having previously served as an Army Officer and gained a degree in physics from the University of Bristol. During officer training, he was awarded the Wilkinson Sword for Outstanding Leadership and graduated as top cadet of his entry.
After completing flying training, Justin went on to fly the Tornado F3, the RAF’s front-line air defence fighter aircraft. He has taken part in both training and operational deployments all over the world, including support of UN peacekeeping operations in Bosnia. On the Tornado he became a ‘force commander’, qualified to lead any scale of mission in any theatre worldwide, and was subsequently selected for the Red Arrows.
Justin served for 3 years on the team performing over 250 displays worldwide. He was the Deputy Team Leader and Executive Officer.
On leaving the RAF, Justin founded his own corporate development company which consists of a team of ex-Red Arrows and RAF fighter pilots, specialising in the development of outstanding leadership, teamwork and execution skills. Services include high-impact conference seminars, motivational keynote speakers, leadership development, risk management, execution-focused training programmes and strategic planning.
Previous clients include Astra Zeneca, BP, HSBC, IBM, Lloyds TSB, Merrill Lynch, the NHS, Prudential Assurance, Saatchi & Saatchi, Unisys and Vodafone.
Justin has extensive experience on the professional speaker conference circuit, and in 2004 addressed Europe’s biggest gathering of business leaders, the Institute of Directors’ Annual Convention at the Royal Albert Hall, alongside Gordon Brown and Michael Howard.
