Dan Lowes

Dan Lowes is a leading high-performance executive coach who had a 16 year career as an Officer and Fighter Pilot in the Royal Air Force, including three years as a Red Arrows pilot. 

Dan graduated from the most demanding and gruelling RAF course and went on to conduct the flying tests of aspiring Red Arrows applicants. 

The lessons he learned through his successful RAF career are as applicable today as workplaces become more remote and virtual. He works with organisations providing coaching and delivers keynote speeches on team development, communication and improving performance.

He has become a practitioner by thriving in one of the world’s most demanding and dynamic environments for over 16 years; surviving from time critical information arriving in the right place at the right time through effective communication lines and processes.

In his talks, Dan shares anecdotes from his life in the RAF, focussing on subjects of communication, leadership development and performance management.  He has  delivered talks recently to Barclays, Swansea City Youth Academy and the Premier League Head of Coach Development.

Type Of Speaker


“Dan delivered an inspirational session on team effectiveness that focused on the skills of debriefing used in his extensive career background in the Red Arrows. Our learners took away key insight in the importance of trust, integrity, honesty and respect. These values were role modelled by Dan throughout the planning, delivery and reflection phases of the shared work with us. Dan utilised his knowledge to transfer the similarities and key differences between our respective performance contexts. He skilfully embedded important messages around high challenge and high support environments and gave our learners bitesize takeaways to take back to their personal context.”

Scott, Senior Coach Development Management, Premier League


“It was right on message, clear, simple in a good way and engaging. I took plenty of notes personally, and there was much to reflect on for the team and the wider business.”

Stephen, Regional Director, Lloyds Bank

“Dan’s ability to deliver key messages on resilience, motivation and life planning was received exceptionally well, especially as many of our young people either suffer or have suffered in these areas in the current climate. I cannot recommend Dan as a speaker enough. The feedback and response that I have received from Dan’s guest speaker appearance has been nothing short of phenomenal”

Rachael, Development Officer, Scouts NI
