How the Top Gun Event Works

01. Kick Off

In Chicago, IL, our team of Fighter Pilots will share insights into their world and align this high-performance message to your organization through our pre-event customization. We can adjust the fun factor or deliver a more L&D focused session based on your business needs.

Learn the power of the Debrief, a simple tool that can increase the performance of your team by 400%, after our pilots debrief the results of your mission.

03. The Mission

Each team member will be appointed as a Squadron Commander with your team. Depending on your organization's requirements, we can plan either a combat or humanitarian mission. Every player has a critical role to play. We also have the options to include themes, hats, and a fully-themed room.

04. Get To Know The Fighter Pilot World

During and after your event, our Fighter Pilots are keen to engage with you and your team, answering questions about their unique world. Be prepared though, our pilots are just as excited about working with you and will have plenty of questions for you on how your business works too!
