During his record-breaking year in space, U.S. astronaut Scott Kelly captivated the world while laying the groundwork for the future of space travel and exploration. And while science was at the core of Kelly’s groundbreaking expedition, it is his life lessons and personal stories from 229 miles above earth and the path that led him there that provide such a unique perspective on embracing risk and discovering one’s true potential to achieve the seemingly impossible. Capt. Kelly’s extraordinary insights on managing anxiety, loneliness, stress and uncertainty offer a soothing tonic for a global workforce still grappling with the mental health impact of the coronavirus pandemic. With a journey that exemplifies the power and resilience of the human spirit, from U.S. Navy fighter pilot to record-holding astronaut, Kelly reveals the choices and life events that paved his way. An American hero whose contribution to humanity is as far reaching as his epic story, Kelly reflects on his journey with his trademark candor, humor and humility. From the leadership and teamwork required in such demanding conditions, to the long-term separation from loved ones and planet earth itself, Kelly will leave attendees with advice they can apply to their personal and professional lives.
