​"Jake's presentation on human performance tools and the over-focus of laying blame on individuals instead of addressing organizational weaknesses was well received by our attendees.

 

The presentation was highly interactive and provided great use of props and videos. Our audience really appreciated the opportunity to take these ideas back to their individual organizations for further use."

Brian Van Gheem, Manager of Reliability Compliance, ACES

"Jake is not your ordinary keynote speaker. Like most, he is entertaining. But what sets Jake apart is a hands-on, experiential method of delivering a powerful and memorable message... Last year’s keynote, How To Freeze Time included an exercise so profound that I now build it into all of my training. This year’s keynote, Brain Based Learning, with three key tips, had the same profound impact.”​

Deveny Bywaters, Training Manager,

The Four Best Questions to Help Your Team Learn From Experience

When I took responsibility as the HPI Lead for a 3,500 person business unit, I quickly learned that many people didn't "get" conventional HPI curriculum... or want it.

In the late 1930s, test pilots loved the B-17. A tragic mishap on a critical flight inspired them to create of one of the most popular and life-saving HPI tools in history.

 

And during WWII, these same B-17s were crashing in one specific and unusual way that no one could understand or prevent… until one of the first aviation psychologists saw one minor detail and revolutionized the way we think about errors.

 

Here are both suspenseful, fact-filled stories.
