To Infinity and Beyond! Extraordinary Life Lessons From the Kelly Brothers

Highly decorated NASA astronauts and retired U.S. Navy captains Mark and Scott Kelly offer insights drawing from their experiences leading teams in dynamic environments, in combat and as space mission commanders. They’ll reveal powerful lessons on leadership, teamwork and sacrifice.

In this session, the Kelly brothers candidly reflect on the experiences and lessons that shaped their views on teamwork and leadership, how they learned to face and overcome adversities, and their personal strategies for adapting to change. From NASA’s Twin Study and Scott’s Year in Space, to flying in combat and personal reflections on dealing with tragedy, to entertaining stories only a sibling could (or would) reveal, the Kelly brothers’ perspective and lessons leave audiences doubly inspired and motivated.
