Peak Performance: Alignment and Flawless Execution in You and Your Business


Afterburner Founder & CEO Jim Murphy Presents Workshop at Inc. 5000

Monday, October 1, 2018 – James D. Murphy, “Murph”, the Founder & CEO of Afterburner, Co-Founder of Advanced Care Partners, and a global business thought leader on organizational execution, has a unique and powerful mix of leadership skills in both the military and business worlds. Murph joined the U.S. Air Force where he logged over 1,200 hours as an instructor pilot in the F-15 and accumulated over 3,200 hours of flight time in other high-performance aircraft. As the 116th Fighter Wing’s Chief of Training for the Georgia Air National Guard, Murph’s job was to keep 42 combat-trained fighter pilots ready to deploy worldwide within 72 hours. As a flight leader, he flew missions to Central America, Asia, Central Europe, and the Middle East.

Murph took the concepts that inspired, trained and scaled elite military teams to the business world in 1996 when he started Afterburner Inc. Realizing that all companies and organizations could benefit from these same concepts, Murph and Afterburner Inc. inspired the “who’s who” of business executives, NFL teams, and other high performers in over 24 countries.

As an eight-time Inc. 500/5000 entrepreneur and Inc. 5000 Hall of Fame Honoree, Murph will guide participants through this simple, scalable framework to reach your potential in business and life. Murph created Afterburner’s Flawless Execution methodology to leverage team experience, lessons learned, and a structured planning process and has spent the last 23 years developing, teaching and embedding in the world’s top corporations. Developed from his elite military experiences, Flawless Execution aims to be the next great business movement. He will present to entrepreneurs on how this framework can drive inspired alignment and disciplined execution in themselves and their teams to achieve exponential business growth.
