The Aussie pilot is a dec­o­rated vet­eran of F-15E Strike Ea­gle mis­sions over Iraq and is used to mak­ing split­sec­ond de­ci­sions with his weapons sys­tems of­fi­cer and flight con­trollers.

“Ev­ery truck­ing in­dus­try work­shop has the need for team­work, and Matt is the ideal per­son to talk about it.

“With the help of his team, Matt can han­dle what­ever the job throws at him and there’s a lot we can learn from him and im­ple­ment in the work­shop en­vi­ron­ment.

“It doesn’t mat­ter if you’re com­pet­ing in the Red Bull Air Race or main­tain­ing a fleet of trucks, at the end of the day it’s all about team­work.”

In an hour-long ses­sion at 9am on Oc­to­ber 17, TMC at­ten­dees will hear Mr Hall’s tales from a life­time in avi­a­tion, in­clud­ing evad­ing mis­siles over Iraq, the Red Bull Air Race and near-death ex­pe­ri­ences.
