ABOUT PROPEL PERFORMANCE

 
 
 

The aviation industry has long recognised that the weak link in the
safe operation of any flight, is the pilot’s vulnerability to human error.  Many fatal accidents have unnecessarily occurred due to the limitations of the pilots’ performance.  Such limitations are accentuated when working in stressful, high work load situations, operating under commercial pressure.  These same pressures are evident any business where humans are involved.  See our wide variety of clients below and their testimonials, to appreciate the application in any business. 

Use lessons learnt from flying, to help your organisation reduce its exposure to costly human error in the workplace.

Matt is an engaging, enthusiastic and inspiring trainer and several people said it was the best training they had been on
— Consultant Pediatrician, NHS Sheffield Hallam Trust
Assessing and managing risk”. It was a great session, very interactive and managed to engage all the SME Managing Directors that were present. I would thoroughly recommend Matt to anyone looking for a keynote speaker on this area
— Lisa Lister, The Yorkshire Leadership Group
A thoroughly professional and interesting presentation, giving lots of food for thought. Matt was inspirational, highly articulate and persuasive
— The UK Border Force
Really enjoyed Matt’s Human Factors Awareness day, he created a relaxed learning environment, and gave an engaging and coherent summary of what can be a really complex area. The human factors implications for patient safety often seem obvious, but in healthcare we often struggle to integrate HF thinking into the design of new spaces, equipment, and ways of working. And I’m sure that HF is still a “missing piece” in quality improvement in healthcare, and well beyond. I left Matt’s session with some clear, practical ideas about how we might do things differently …
