About This Speaker:

About Kevin Sweeney -

Kevin talks about Peak Performance under pressure. The main story he tells is where he was the Captain of a KC-135, the military version of the Boeing 707, 4 engine jet, at night, maximum weight on a Desert Storm mission when the two engines on his left wing came completely off the airplane.

With the help of his crew, he flew the airplane back and successfully landed. Kevin talks about how to put you and your team in position to handle the pressures we all face personally and professionally on a daily basis.

Kevin Sweeney's Media Quotes:

Reader’s Digest

"It was sheer skill and remarkably calm performance that kept the airplane flying that night. Last May, Sweeney, Selanders, Mermis and Stucky were presented the U.S. Air Force Distinguished Flying Cross “for extraordinary achievement.”

“How did you manage to do it?” a reporter asked Sweeney. “We stayed calm, practiced basic airmanship and did what we had to.”

Private Clubs

“I relate that to my audience. If a salesperson has prepared for that irate customer to call, that’s not a bad day. It’s OK, they know how to handle it.”…”I talk about some of the biggest stress in life, which we cause ourselves. I talk about focus, ignoring the immaterial. How many times do we find ourselves looking at the wrong thing?”

Oklahoma Association Manager

“Think ahead; avoid putting yourself into a known position of pressure. You can control the situation; put yourself into a position for success.”
