Jo Salter "One of the 50 most inspiring women in the world." Harpers and Queen
Jo Salter was Britain's first female fast jet pilot. Her tales from such an elite world offer alternative insights into personal development, meeting challenges and succeeding in the face of adversity
Imagine being in control of 25 million pounds of screaming metal flying just above the ground - decisions have to be immediate, reflexes lightning fast. For Jo Salter, this was just the day job when she became Britain’s first female fighter pilot flying the Tornado GR1, then one of 5 women fighter pilots in the world.
Her military experience is multifaceted: technical; professional; managerial; political. Add 5 years of e-commerce experience and management consultancy in both the public and private sector, an MBA, Associate Lectureship with the Open University Business School - and no wonder Jo is so successful in combining management and leadership theory with her unique practical experiences to present a humorous and moving range of speeches.
Jo has extensive experience of working with the media, from featuring on the front page of The Times to international radio and television coverage. Her television appearances include Record Breakers as well as various documentaries - most recently the BBC’s Inside Out programme and she can currently be heard as a regular guest on London's leading talk radio station, LBC 97.3.
As a combat ready pilot with 617 Squadron, the Dambusters, Jo experienced operational tours of duty and took part in large international NATO exercises around the world. She worked in intelligence. She became a fast jet instructor. Her tales from such an elite world offer alternative insights into personal development, meeting challenges and succeeding in the face of adversity.
Jo uses her boundless energy, never-failing humour, compassion and understanding, as well as her advanced skills, to facilitate workshops, carry out life changing seminars, conduct high performance coaching sessions and enable individuals and organisations to solve problems.
Achievement is a way of life for Jo – and, yes, achievement while living in the real world as a daughter, sister, partner, parent, friend… Jo is a determined and visionary realist. Be prepared to be challenged.

She is both funny and dramatic without being melodramatic. Her message about change is wonderful and her performance that day touched me and inspired me."
Doug Stevenson - Speaker, Trainer, Author, and Coach

From being a small boy watching David Nixon on TV, to entertaining Hollywood stars at The Magic Castle in California, Michael Vincent has come a very long way. His dream was simple: to become the very best at his chosen craft, and bring world-class magic within the reach of everyone. Now the high standards that he set for himself, has audiences catching their breath. They see it, but they don't believe it. Fasten your seat belts, and set your faces to stun, Michael Vincent has arrived.
Never ridiculing or humiliating, Michael treats his audience with the utmost courtesy and respect. Once using magic as a means to overcome his own shyness, Michael now utilises his art to assist others to overcome theirs, by drawing his audience into a world of wonder and enchantment. His skills break the ice at functions, making people relax and interact - a good time is had by all.
Recognised for his performing excellence and relentless, painstaking, attention to detail, he is justifiably proud, and grateful, for the many honours that have been bestowed upon him by his peers:
* Magic Circle Magician of the Year
* International Magician of the Year
* Best British Performer - The International Grand Prix
The reward for the thousands of hours of practice and training which has brought Michael to his present level, is observing the thrill in peoples eyes, as he invokes the emotions of total astonishment. For when 'the moment' comes, we all forget our troubles and are transported back into our childhood, as a miracle unfolds right before our eyes.
"I'm lucky to have the greatest job in the world" says Michael. "In return for the warmth that people generate towards me, as I watch them bond with 'the moment' and each other,
I get to give each and every one of them a happy memory to treasure for the rest of their lives. They 'touch' me with their applause, and I 'touch' them with my art".
His communication and diplomacy skills, forged through the experience gained in performing his craft, have made Michael Vincent a much requested after-dinner speaker, motivator and trainer.
Lindsay graduated in 1991 with BA (Hons) Creative Arts, then worked as a radio newsreader before setting up her own business to match passengers with drivers on long distance journeys. The company, Freewheelers Ltd. targeted student and back-packer markets, generating ongoing publicity, blue-chip sponsors and 17,000 members. She was awarded a finalist place in the 1998 Cosmopolitan Women of Achievement Awards for this work despite having not made any money!
The company did not reach critical mass, so reluctantly she closed the business and took up the offer of launching a similar scheme in Sydney before returning to the UK. She worked in business development for a video production company and directed a show-reel, which won a Gold Award at the 1999 International Film and Video Festival before joining an eight-man Multimedia and Video Production Company, Viscom based in Aberdeen. She was promoted to General Manager status and within eighteen months, led the company to diversify and increase profits.
Then, switching from micro to macro business environments, Lindsay joined a communications consultancy, on immediate assignment to Shell Exploration and Production. Located full-time onsite with the knowledge-sharing team and the Petroleum Development Oman integration team, she learned the ropes for 18 months before joining Shell as staff in the role of Communications Manager for the Group-wide global learning organisation.
Having been an Apprentice, Lindsay is now an independent practitioner, writing and studying organisational communications.
