Astronaut | Former Commander of the International Space Station

Chris Hadfield will share, in this conference, useful and practical lessons he’s learned throughout his remarkable career in the fields of leadership, teamwork, collaboration, science and technology. He will also motivate the audience to achieve dreams higher than the clouds.

“Good morning, Earth!” That is how Colonel Chris Hadfield—writing on Twitter—woke up the world every day while living aboard the International Space Station for over five months. Since blasting off from Kazakhstan in December 2012, Hadfield has become a worldwide sensation, harnessing the power of social media to make outer space accessible to millions and infusing a sense of wonder into the collective consciousness not felt since man first walked on the Moon.

Called “the most famous astronaut since Neil Armstrong,” Hadfield, now safely back on Earth, continues to bring the glory of science and space travel to everyone he encounters. Hadfield is the pioneer of many “firsts.” In 1992, he was selected by the Canadian Space Agency as a NASA Mission Specialist ― Canada’s first fully-qualified Space Shuttle crewmember. Three years later, he was the first Canadian to operate the Canadarm in space, and the first Canadian to board a Russian spacecraft as he helped build the Russian space station, Mir. In 2001, Hadfield performed two spacewalks ― the first Canadian to do so ― and in 2010 the CSA and NASA announced Hadfield’s third mission: commanding the International Space Station (ISS) ― again a first for a Canadian.

Let this leader inspire you to achieve dreams higher than the clouds.
