Short Description

Having enjoyed an illustrious career that has cemented Colonel Ron Garan’s place as one of the world’s most influential individuals, the iconic father of three is a decorated NASA astronaut, fighter pilot and test pilot, a humanitarian, and a social entrepreneur.

As part of a select group of individuals who have been fortunate enough to see the world from space, Ron champions his “orbital perspective” message to improve life on earth. Ron is celebrated not just for his research in space but also for his humanitarian contribution to life on earth.

A thirty-year career in the US Air Force and NASA has given Ron a unique perspective on how teams function under stress.

Ron has been a member of several high-performing teams in combat, during high-risk test flights, and in dealing with life-or-death aircraft emergencies—which have forged a process to turn stress into performance. Ron merges those lessons with his entrepreneurial and corporate executive experience, providing unique insights for organizations facing tough challenges.

The idea of strapping yourself to a rocket filled with 4 million pounds of explosives forces one to learn and accept new technology.

Many of the problems facing organizations today have technological solutions. However, we can’t just slap a technical Band-Aid on a problem and expect it to go away. Success occurs when we take a holistic approach to technical solutions. Using real-world examples, Ron navigates the benefits and unintended consequences of technology in an increasingly interdependent landscape.

Keynotes & Speeches
Taking Ron’s orbital perspective, audiences learn to look beyond what separates us and to recognize that we’re are all in this together, on one common mission.

Ron’s career as an astronaut, decorated combat fighter pilot, commercial space executive, and humanitarian offers a unique perspective to any meeting or event. His lessons from living, working, and spacewalking on the International Space Station, perhaps the most complex structure ever built, serve as a perfect illustration for collaboration.

His approach has a powerful effect, allowing audiences to set aside differences, work as a team, and embrace change for a brighter future. Ron’s long-term and big-picture perspective continues to effect positive change in individuals and organizations across the planet.
