Tuesday, April 4, 2017 ⋅ 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. Marriott Muehlebach Towers 1213 Wyandotte St., Kansas City, MO 64105
The Rockhurst University Leadership Series, presented by the Rockhurst University Leaders Council and the Association for Corporate Growth, welcomes American hero and NASA astronaut Captain Scott Kelly, as this year’s speaker. Kelly will share his insights on effective leadership, communication and teamwork following his record-breaking year in space. ABOUT CAPTAIN SCOTT KELLY Back from his historic record-breaking year in space, NASA astronaut Captain Scott Kelly has laid the groundwork for the future of space travel and exploration, and continues to garner media exposure like no other pioneer of our time. From the cover of TIME to live interviews on TODAY to features in Forbes and on CNN to a Twitter following that is rapidly approaching 2 million, the world remains in awe as we celebrate a hero’s return to the planet that is home, from an adventure that is extraordinary. Kelly will share and reflect on life lessons and personal stories that reveal unique and valuable advice on pushing one’s own limits, to insight on the leadership and teamwork required in such demanding conditions, and the challenges—such as long term deprivation from loved ones and Planet Earth. An astronaut since 1996, Kelly’s achievements over his illustrious 20-year career with NASA earned him the coveted position as America’s first yearround astronaut. On his historic mission that spanned from March 2015 to March 2016, Kelly and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko conducted experiments, reconfigured station modules, and captivated the world with live interviews and never-seen-before photos from the International Space Station. The historic mission also included NASA’s groundbreaking Twins Study, in which Kelly’s identical twin brother, retired NASA astronaut Captain Mark Kelly, served on the ground as a control model in an unprecedented experiment to understand how space affects the human body. Prior to his career with NASA, Kelly served 25 years in the U.S. Navy, retiring as an experienced aviator and decorated Captain.
