With Litmos C3, September 18-20, 2017, Wynn Resort, Las Vegas less than two weeks away, we didn’t want to miss the chance to remind you about some of the big-time speakers at this year’s conference. You may be thinking, “I know, I know. I’ve heard new announcements about presenters and agenda items for the past couple of months,” to which I’ll respond by stealing a line from an info-mercial: But wait, there’s more.
In addition to recent posts announcing legendary business leaders like Patty McCord and Bill McDermott as keynote speakers, the all-star list of learning analysts and thought-leaders making speaking appearances, as well as agenda highlights (parts 1 and 2) for learning professionals, it’s hard to believe that we actually have MORE to tell you! But we do.
The latest additions to the speaker list are Captain Mark Kelly, Commander of Space Shuttle Endeavour’s Final Mission, and Byron Matthews, President and CEO, Miller Heiman Group. We are super honored and excited to have these leaders join our lineup. Here’s why:
Captain Mark Kelly, Commander of Space Shuttle Endeavour’s Final Mission:
NASA space mission commander and American hero Captain Mark Kelly demonstrates how focus, dedication and persistence can help you tap into your potential to succeed in any competitive setting.
With an extraordinary career of service to our military, our nation and humanity, Mark has secured his place in history as a role model, modern-day pioneer, and leader of distinction. Together with his identical twin brother, Scott, he has laid the groundwork for the future of space exploration as the subjects of an unprecedented NASA study on how space affects the human body. Currently, Mark is on the Commercial Crew Safety Board at Space X—and is the only person at Space X who has commanded a space mission—and is co-founder of World View, a full-service commercial space launch provider.
Mark captivates audiences with lessons learned from his extensive travels and experiences in the Navy, outer space and on the ground. From leading teams in some of the most dynamic environments imaginable, to the thrill of spaceflight, and the recovery and resilience of his wife Gabrielle Giffords, he reveals the foundations for success so you can accomplish your mission in life and work.
