About us

We help organisations build high-performance cultures. Founded in 2003 by a former Red Arrows pilot, team members have first-hand experience of the most demanding high-performance and high-reliability environments.

The Business of Excellence by Justin Hughes

Our Approach

We are not theoretical observers of the action from the stands.  We have spent a lot of time on the pitch.  Our approach is empirical – we have reverse engineered our methodology from what we know works and then spent over 10 years refining it for other organisations.  To learn more about our approach and our high-performance model, see The Business of Excellence.


The business case for organisational learning

Many organisations believe that learning and reflection are important, but there are few examples where that belief has been successfully translated into a winning learning culture. Our white paper sets out the business case for organisational learning and the link to high performance.
