Our mission has always been to bring you the most relevant training available – taught by our instructor staff whose real-world experience and credibility are second to none. The Competitive Outcomes’ approach blends this experience with explanations developed in partnership with experts in the fields of psychology, statistics, and sociology to bring you a training methodology that has proven results. These tactics are flexible and replicable for a wide variety of applications - by design.
Our unique training approach has been used by national championship winning sports teams, the most elite ceremonial military units in Washington, DC, Special Operations Forces, local/state/federal law enforcement agencies, Fire/EMS departments, business executives, and by foreign governments & militaries.

Bill Owen, Founder & President
"Iron sharpens iron."
Our training staff/cadre all come from a wide variety of drill team & Honor Guard positions that truly represent the tip of the spear. All drill team trainers have National Championship titles on their resume, and all Honor Guard trainers are subject matter experts (SME) in their field, having worked at the highest national and international levels to include ceremonies for Heads of State.
Founder & Director of Training
Mr. Bill Owen is a Florida native who is widely considered one of the world’s leading experts in military drill & ceremonies training for both drill teams and Honor Guards. His talented and unique approach has been used to train tens of thousands of trainees, not only in the United States, but also internationally at the request of foreign governments to revamp or create their national ceremonial drill units and Honor Guards. Bill is also a subject matter expert (SME) for military, police, fire, EMS, federal agencies, and other Honor Guard units worldwide. In the United States, he has trained the US Army 3rd Infantry Regiment "The Old Guard", trained and choreographed the US Army Drill Team, and has also trained members of the US Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon and the US Navy Ceremonial Honor Guard - all in Washington, DC.
Mr. Owen has both judged and trained judges for National, International, and World Drill Championship competitions. He has also served as an event supervisor, event director, and competition director for these competitions and developed the first real time and live scoring software for drill team competitions.
It is his well-rounded, scientific, and unique perspective that forms the skeleton of all of Competitive Outcomes’ techniques and strategies. Bill’s work has directly contributed to well over 50 National, International, and World Championships for both drill teams and Honor Guards, an achievement that is unparalleled.
The lessons that drill & ceremony teach as well as the mission of the Honor Guard are things that Mr. Owen truly believes in. He has said time and time again that they shaped him into the man he is today. Training others in these skills and seeing their progression is his true passion.
Bill has earned degrees from the University of North Florida, the University of Central Florida, and the Federal Emergency Management Institute. In the past, Bill has sat on the International Association of Exhibition Drillers’ Board of Governors, the Military Drill Hall of Fame's Board of Directors, Drill Nation Board of Directors, and as an event supervisor for Honor Guards of America & National Honor Guards Day.
