Full Presenter Profile & Bio
Purpose-driven performance is core to everything that Boo does.
Boo was selected for pilot training in the Royal Australian Air Force at age 18. Successfully graduating as a fighter pilot and being one of only 400 fighter pilots trained over a period of 40 years, Boo had achieved his life's dream of flying an F/A-18 solo. Eleven years of service later, Boo was medically discharged after a diagnosis of "bone-fusing" Ankylosing Spondylitis, ending his dream career and presenting him with one of the biggest emotional and financial challenges of his life.
Boo had no other recognised skills to his name, so he took a leap of faith and entered the business world. He travelled to Afghanistan to establish what is today one of the world’s largest humanitarian service providers: CTG GLOBAL. As the founder and CEO, he considers this period in his life to be “the ultimate MBA program.” With a unique bank of knowledge and lived experience like speaking at the UN in New York and Geneva, and speaking with local Afghan people as a part of his company, Boo developed an authentic understanding of purpose, empathy, determination, and the importance of service leadership when running a complex business.
Boo knows and understands that his purpose is to foster success in the lives of others – his fundamental understanding of what it takes to Get it Done, he approaches everything with an accelerated mindset allowing him to approach life with velocity and momentum.
Boo believes in people. He believes in their inherent goodness and their to desire to help. With practiced knowledge of leadership, Boo has long been ready to assist in building your courage and leading you on your journey. McDonalds, Zurich, Microsoft, Lenovo, Woolworths are but a few of the global leaders he has shared his secrets to creating ‘Deep Performance’ with. That disruptive and sustainable high-performance mindset which creates genuine momentum for you and your organisation for years to come.
As a bestselling author, Boo is a living proof that you can achieve anything you set your mind to. He is obsessed with performance: he blogs, writes, coaches and mentors all things “deep” performance, and defines his success by the success of those he works with.
