For his motivating keynote speeches Philip Keil received several awards, such as the nomination as keynote speaker of the year 2019 & 2020.
The german Handelsblatt states:
“As top-speaker and successful author he inspired tens of thousands of people across Europe”.
Flying is all about teamwork. But what is the secret of success of teams and what make teams fail? As a leader above the clouds, Philip Keil speaks by daily experience about leadership and communication in challenging situations. Who wants to leave comfort zones and empower ownership, must create a team culture of trust beyond rigid hierarchies.
This multiple awarded keynote speech transfers the “human factor” – concept of the aviation industry into the business world – exciting and fully applicable.
Neither in the cockpit nor in life everything runs according our plans. No matter how good the plan is. In aviation these moments are called “decision points”.
Philip Keil shows, how pilots make difficult decisions while adhering to a consequent positive error culture. Only if you dare to speak up freely to mistakes, you can avoid a dangerous chain of errors. Not a wrong decision leads to a crash, but not deciding – in the company cockpit alike!
A thrilling motivational keynote speech with a clear message: Everyone is the pilot of his life! And flying you only learn by flying – not by watching, not by studying theory books. But by doing! What is the role of our “inner compass” for our thoughts and our actions? And what keeps us from following it? Germany’s most famous pilot speaks about comfort zones, hard landings in life and the courage of making survivable mistakes. Maximum thrust for your success!
