Staying Alive

Staying Alive


Do you have a plan to survive the year?  And beyond?  A system to guide you along the way?  I do, and I’m going to reveal it.

Staying Alive Presentation Slide for BPA AGM

This weekend is the British Parachute Association Annual General Meeting and I’ll be speaking on the topic of Staying Alive.  I’m going to share my plan to do so and how I will ensure I make it to the end of the year despite undertaking a bunch of seemingly crazy activities.

If you’re a skydiver or BASE jumper, this is certainly for you.  If you’re not, there’s still some highly relevant content that every single one of us can apply to our daily lives.

Here’s an outline:

  • I’m going to share with you the most common ways to die when parachuting (read Pete Allum’s article to gain some more background knowledge).
  • I’m going to tell you about 2 of the occasions that I nearly died, what I did wrong and what I’ve learnt from it.  One of these incidents is on a video that has never before been released, which I’ll be sharing.
  • I’m going share my Survival Manifesto.  It’s based on content from the Preventing Death Part 1 and Part 2 blog posts which went viral (and crashed my server) and I’m going to add further value to these points.
  • I’m going to explain why my Survival Manifesto is a great step in the right direction.  But I’ll tell you why it’s not quite enough and what action you need to take to address this.
  • I will share The Knowledge Protocol.  It’s a simple concept that you can take into your jumping to make you a safer person.  In fact, you can take this into your professional and personal life to add even further value.
  • And, I’m going to tell you how you can adopt these strategies without holding you back.  You can still have fun, push your own boundaries, step outside of your comfort zones and do something special.
  • Oh, and above all, I’ll make sure I finish with plenty of time for you to recharge your glasses at bar before the next speaker takes the stage.

The presentation is being recorded so I hope that, in time, those that can’t be there live can still benefit from it.  Update: tune in to the Livestream at 1500 UK time on Saturday

If you are heading to the BPA AGM then make sure you send me a tweet (feel free to use this link: and use the hash tag #BPAAGM14.

Question: As I fine tune my presentation, is there anything else you’d like to see or hear?
