I look forward to meeting many of you at the AAMA 81st Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida!

For those of you I have yet to meet, I am Air Force Colonel (retired) Chris “Elroy” Stricklin. For more than 23 years, I served at various levels of Air Force leadership, hanging up my G-Suit last year. During my time in uniform, I flew Combat F-15s and Thunderbird F-16s, led a squadron of 36 airmen, a combat wing of 1,000 NATO servicemembers and culminated my career leading a 7,000-person-strong team in a globally dispersed wing of reconnaissance assets. Now, as a partner at Afterburner, I team up with high-performing corporations to enable their evolution into elite teams achieving their strategic goals through the Flawless Execution® methodology.

Afterburner is a leadership training and consulting company unique in that we are comprised of current and former elite military professionals. The Air Force fighter pilots, Army Rangers and Navy SEALS at Afterburner specialize in strategic and agile planning and the continuous improvement required for success through a culture of learning, accountability.

Our methodology was born and bred in the zero tolerance for error world of elite military teams. It is derived from the framework we applied in complex combat situations to instill discipline, focus and alignment across our teams. We now take this same passion, dedication and determination to businesses to equip both individuals and entire teams with the tools to successfully drive accountability, establish strategic alignment and build people first, mission always cultures.

During the keynote presentation at the Annual Conference, we will examine Afterburner’s simple, scalable, proven methodology. The result will be actionable understanding on how to apply this unique insight to your daily business activities immediately. I look forward to meeting each of you and helping you accelerate your individual, team, and organizational performance. See you in Orlando!
