Biography

Renowned as one of the most dynamic keynote speakers in the industry, Jack Becker has spoken to some of the highest-performing organizations in the world including General Electric, Allied Transportation, the American Heart Association, and SunTrust Bank. His keynotes deliver action-packed lessons of fighter pilot combat missions to instill a culture of continual process improvement. Regardless of your business, Jack’s keynotes simply reduce human error.

Your team will make fewer mistakes! Within all seven regions of GE Power and Water alone, Jack’s program has reduced OSHA recordable mishaps over 60%.

Jack is a leadership, human performance, teamwork, safety, and process improvement professional whose years of expertise inspired him to found Flight Level Solutions, Inc. Now Jack has successfully adapted the same peak human performance skills that made him successful flying combat missions in the F/A-18 Hornet, to training companies striving to perform at fighter pilot levels. He served as a carrier-based F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet fighter pilot, instructor pilot, landing signal officer, quality assurance officer, and crew resource management instructor. Jack has over 2,000 hours flying supersonic fighter jets and brings the same passion and excitement to each keynote speech he delivers. He is a decorated combat veteran having flown strike missions in Operation Iraqi Freedom and is a graduate of the U.S. Navy Crew Resource Management (CRM) School.

As one of the Navy’s most highly decorated Landing Signals Officers (LSO), Jack was instrumental in incorporating the process improvement model of CRM to help pilots improve quickly while landing supersonic fighter jets on nuclear-powered aircraft carriers. He was responsible for over 21,000 mishap-free carrier landings. Jack’s unique experience as both an LSO and as the Navy’s top CRM instructor, he saw an opportunity to relay the same skills of Brief-Execute-Debrief-Perfect to the American workplace. From healthcare groups to manufacturing, construction, sales teams, and insurance firms, Jack’s dynamic keynotes and seminars leave a lasting impression.

Jack earned a BS in Political Science with an emphasis on organizational leadership from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. Currently, he serves part-time as an F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet instructor pilot in the U.S. Naval Reserve.

Testimonials

Outstanding! Jack Becker has truly changed our culture for the better. Zero mishaps for the first two quarters following the training!! Best presentation I’ve seen in my career by far!!!
– Jim Foreman, III, North American Director, General Electric
Jack was very well received by our employees. The fact that we had a fighter pilot here to talk about safety and human performance, so soon after Top Gun Maverick came out, was great timing. I had not seen Jack’s presentation prior to him being here, but the culture shift we are seeking in human performance, which in turn has a tremendous influence on safety and production efficiencies, were perfectly aligned with Jack’s message. I liken him to one of my kid’s cool friends. I can tell the kids something and it goes in one ear and out the other, but the same exact message seems to resonant differently if it comes from the cool friend. As leaders, we have developed programs and processes and it is received so-so by our workers. But the same message coming from Jack seems to pack more of a punch, and I look forward to hearing how he has impacted our site as we journey on with HU. Please use me as a reference if you have any clients who like to hear a first-hand experience regarding Jack.
– Staci White, Safety and Emergency Response Manager, Urenco
Jack Becker is one of the best, most knowledgeable, and inspirational storytellers I've heard speak. He makes you feel as if you are part of his story, and I was able to envision myself in his shoes feeling all the feels. Myself and those around me were completely captivated from the time Jack walked on stage to when he received a standing ovation.
– Becky G, President Elect of EO Chicago, CEO of Candor Threads
