Christopher is an ex Royal Air Force, now commercial pilot as well as a human performance specialist. Operating under his brand OODA LOOP he helps businesses get the best from their people through training and speaking on a range of Human Performance subjects directly linked to his training and experience as a pilot.
Reaching the rank of Squadron Leader, Christopher followed his dream of becoming a Royal Air Force pilot by making the bold move of joining straight from school at 18 years old and was the youngest pilot in the RAF at the time.
His early career as a Special Forces pilot involved several tours of Afghanistan conducting Counter Terrorism operations before moving on to VIP flying for the Prime Minister and Royal Family which often involved flights into warzones. It was during this time that Christopher completed a degree with the Open University and frequently found himself writing essays whilst taking incoming enemy fire!
On promotion, Christopher commanded a base in the Middle East before returning to the UK as a strategic military planner with a keen focus on the emerging threat from Russia.
Christopher returned to flying in the Air Refuelling role, conducting missions in the fight against ISIS before commanding the UK’s State VIP jet, ‘Vespina’ for the Royal Family and Prime Minister.
After 22 years of service, Christopher flies for a major airline and with a passion for Human Performance, his mission is helping organisations to gain the leading edge by sharing his knowledge and experience across all sectors of industry.
Christopher has a 5 year old son and in his spare time flies vintage aeroplanes and plays tennis.
