Jo Salter

Britain's first female fighter pilot

Jo Salter is an innovative and dynamic individual with over 25 years experience in the public, private and not for profit sectors. She was Britain’s first female fast-jet pilot flying the Tornado GR1 and is a renowned inspirational speaker. Her tales from such an elite world offer alternative insights into personal development, meeting challenges and succeeding in the face of adversity.

“One of the 50 most inspiring women in the world.” Harpers & Queen

Jo has substantial successful experience within strategic planning, governance, analysis, transformational change, high performing teams, HR and financial management alongside a proven ability to lead projects to inception and build strong relationships with individuals across boundaries and levels.   She consistently demonstrates strategic, analytical as well as creative thinking and is particularly strong in understanding complex issues and articulating them in an understandable way.

Her military experience is multifaceted: technical; professional; managerial; political. Add many years of e-commerce experience and management consultancy in both the public and private sector, an MBA, Associate Lectureship with the Open University Business School, writing books, and flying air cadets as a volunteer pilot for the RAF at weekends – and no wonder Jo is so successful in combining management and leadership theory with her unique practical experiences to present a humorous, inspiring and moving range of speeches.

As a combat-ready pilot with 617 Squadron, the Dambusters, Jo experienced operational tours of duty and took part in large international NATO exercises around the world. She worked in intelligence and became a fast jet instructor.

Jo has extensive experience of working with the media, from featuring on the front page of The Times to international radio and television coverage. Her television appearances include Record Breakers as well as various documentaries.

In November 2016, Jo was appointed by PwC as a manager responsible for digital capabilities within the People and Organisation practice.

Jo Salter now uses her boundless energy, never-failing humour, compassion and understanding, as well as her advanced skills, to facilitate workshops, carry out life-changing seminars, conduct high-performance coaching sessions and enable individuals and organisations to solve problems.

To be the first in any area is difficult, but by overcoming the obstacles of the highly selective, elitist, male enclave of a military fast jet establishment, Jo broke the mould.

Jo was absolutely fantastic, they loved her. She was very motivational, great personality and approachable after the talk.
