Afterburner Announces Collaboration with Paramount Pictures, CMX Cinemas, and Silverspot Cinemas to Host Team-Building Events Featuring the Film Top Gun: Maverick 

The collaboration will empower corporate teams across the country to practice the principles of Flawless Execution while celebrating the film that inspired Afterburner’s founder.

Afterburner, a provider of Top Gun-themed events that train corporations in the principles of Flawless Execution, has announced a collaboration with Paramount Pictures, CMX Cinemas, and Silverspot Cinema to host their signature Top Gun Experience events for corporate teams at movie theaters nationwide. Featuring fun and engaging simulated team-building missions led by real fighter pilots and concluding with a viewing of the new film Top Gun: Maverick, the events will empower teams to develop stronger collaboration skills and boost their revenue execution.

The events are ideal for any corporate team looking for a high-energy experience to accelerate their performance and hit their revenue target. By hosting the events in participating state-of-the-art movie theaters, rather than a more typical setting such as a conference room or hotel ballroom, Afterburner and its partners will create experiences that are both unique and cost-effective. 

Attendees will break into groups to complete their exciting simulated mission, in which they’ll contend with an unpredictable environment, strict time constraints, and a limited allotment of resources. A Top Gun trophy will be awarded to the first team to complete the mission. Successful execution will require the team to communicate, organize, and lead each other with unwavering focus.

“Seeing the first Top Gun film when it came out was an extremely formative moment for me, and actually inspired me to become a fighter pilot,” commented Jim “Murph” Murphy, a former Air Force fighter pilot who was inspired by his time in the military to create the company Afterburner and its Flawless Execution methodology. “The opportunity to combine our events with the film Top Gun: Maverick, and pass that inspiration along to a new generation of leaders, is a true full-circle experience. We’re so excited to provide teams with the opportunity to practice elite collaboration and execution before seeing those skills demonstrated in this amazing movie.” 

Flawless Execution draws from practices employed by elite fighter pilot teams and applies them to business objectives. Built around the core steps of planning, briefing, executing, and debriefing, it provides teams with a framework for mission success and empowers them to align on strategy, build excitement for their mission, and execute on their revenue targets.
