Justin Hughes's 2022 biography

Justin Hughes’ background

Expert on building high-performance cultures

Justin’s passion for high performance evolved from his experience as a fighter pilot and subsequently as Executive Officer on the Red Arrows, performing over 250 displays worldwide.  He has a rare experience of how you plan, execute and adapt in situations characterised by ambiguity, imperfect information, speed of change and pressure to deliver.

Since leaving the RAF, Justin has worked as a strategic adviser who helps senior leadership teams deliver.  Clients have included Microsoft, the United Nations and Mercedes Formula 1, and he is a regular contributor to BP’s global Leading in Operations programme.

During the Covid-19 crisis, Justin walked his own talk in a senior line manager role as L3Harris’ Director Integrated Airline Services.  In one of the hardest hit sectors, Justin managed a major change programme in a fast-moving environment, while also sitting on the global business continuity team.

Most recently, Justin led a successful million dollar fundraising round for a biotech startup focused on eliminating agriculture’s estimated 2bn tonnes of CO2e annual contribution to global warming.

Justin is a renowned speaker on a range of topics relating to high performance including leadership, building high-performance teams (inc virtual), decision-making and cognitive diversity, and risk and safety.  He has presented in the US, Europe, the Middle and Far East, and China, and has shared the stage with Kofi Annan, Lord Sebastian Coe, Daniel Pink, Malcolm Gladwell, Gordon Brown and Sir Richard Branson, among others.

Justin is the author of The Business of Excellence (Bloomsbury, 2016), has been profiled in the London Standard, Director, the Daily Telegraph and the Independent, and interviewed for BBC World ‘Talking Business’, BBC Breakfast and GB News.

Justin has an MBA with Distinction from London Business School and an MSt with Distinction in International Relations from the University of Cambridge.  For the latter, he planned a thesis on pandemics but thought nobody would be interested(!), and instead analysed the threat posed by cryptocurrency to the financial order; he is currently sitting on a return of 1000%; unfortunately he only bought $30.
