Amelia Rose Earhart Speaker Biography

As a boundary-pushing, around-the-world pilot, Amelia Rose Earhart knows exactly what it takes to venture into uncharted territory – with confidence.

With the odds stacked against her, Amelia not only trained to become a pilot, but to become the type of pilot to choose honor the person she was named after, Amelia Mary Earhart, by piloting a single-engine airplane (Pilatus PC-12NG) 28,000 Nautical Miles around the globe. To accomplish this, Amelia developed a flight plan all her own, and while reporting full-time as on air, TV helicopter reporter, completed private, instrument and commercial pilot training, crafted an entrepreneurial and strategic business plan to design, fund and market her around the world attempt, raised close to $2 million in partnerships with 28 corporations, founded and ran the Fly With Amelia Foundation, which sent numerous teenage girls to flight school, and more.

Today, Amelia Rose Earhart is a full-time speaker, podcast host, and artist living in Denver, CO who incorporates the lessons of her 2014 global flight into every aspect of her professional and personal life. Amelia is excited to share the remaining funds from the Fly With Amelia Foundation to another aviation charity helping to promote women in aviation and will be sharing exciting details soon. From the Air Force Thunderbirds, to the Reagan Library, to corporations like Capital One, Lockheed Martin and United Healthcare, Amelia’s list of clients who trust her message of agility continues to grow.

Amelia is currently completing her book, The Ups and the Downs of Turbulence, which she wrote with author Kristin Clark Taylor, during Winter of 2020. Memorabilia from Amelia’s flight around the world can be found at her permanent display at Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum in Denver, CO.

Flight 2024-2025 Destination: Uncharted Territory
[Both Virtual and In-Person Programs available]

There will be successful companies in 2024-2025 and beyond. What’s one thing these teams will need to have in common? A willingness to venture into uncharted territory. In the midst of professional and personal change, teams who take action on bold, resourceful, and never-before imagined solutions are the ones that will find growth.

As a boundary-pushing around the world pilot, Amelia Rose Earhart knows exactly what it takes to venture into uncharted territory; now she’s sharing her one of a kind perspective and strategy with the world.

With the odds stacked against her, Amelia brought her own bold idea to life in 2014, piloting a small plane (Pilatus PC-12NG) 28,000 Nautical Miles around the globe. To accomplish this, Amelia self-funded her private, instrument and commercial flight training, went through open-water survival training, crafted a strategic business plan to design, fund and market her around the world attempt, help to design and build a custom auxiliary fuel tank for the trip, grew a large and passionate social following to spread the word, raised close to $2 million in partnerships with 28 corporations, founded and ran a charity organization to send numerous teenage girls to flight school, and more.

In Amelia’s keynote, she shares key elements that she used in her successful, uncharted trip around the globe, which is directly transferable to the business world. Whether the attendees are CEOs/leaders, a sales team, or an entire team of an organization, Amelia’s talk contains actionable takeaways that people can start implementing immediately.

Consider All Directions. It's course correction in action. When unexpected challenges force us to choose a different path toward reaching our goal, it can be tempting to lose momentum, or even give up completely. In this session, flexibility and options for success are unlocked and explored, as Amelia shares stories and strategies centered around seeking new paths with confidence and creativity. Gone are the days when responding to challenges with a simple and rigid North, East, South West approach is acceptable, and here, Amelia empowers teams to unlock all directions of their compass through course-correction techniques to help navigate the roughest storms.

How to turn small shifts into massive results
In this insightful and actionable flight lesson, Amelia leads teams through an honest assessment of determining which practices, habits and limiting ideas can be shifted, consolidated or eliminated all together in order to fly further than ever imagined. This lesson packs an extra punch, as Amelia uses actual equipment from her custom designed 200 gallon auxiliary fuel tank from her global flight to emphasize the importance of prioritizing fuel over unnecessary baggage.

Plan for obstacles. The power of understanding worst case scenarios
Creating a well-researched plan for tackling potential pitfalls and challenges is an absolute must when exploring uncharted territory. Developing a deep understanding of what could go wrong when innovating and growing, boosts self-confidence, presence, and instills calmness in the face of adversity if and when they arrive. In stressful situations, our body’s hormone levels rise, affecting our thinking, perception, and memory retrieval. Through an in-depth breakdown of how and why pilots undergo open water survival training, Amelia explains how rehearsing for emergency situations in the professional environment can boost confidence, illuminate options and boost performance.


LEAD LIKE A PILOT: Take on a Pilot’s Perspective to Navigate Change and Success with Agility 

Pilots are known for their clear communication skills, decisiveness, situational awareness, information processing, workload management, and overall sense of personal responsibility.

These same skills are invaluable in today’s workplace, given the varied tasks and responsibilities each team member is required to perform, often in the work from home environment.

In this talk, each member of your team will learn immediate ways to think and act with a pilot in command mentality.


  • How conducting “pre-flight” style team briefings can ensure understanding, preparedness and confidence among team members
  • How to identify and avoid the five most hazardous attitudes to stress responses, and how to counter them with positive action
  • How the use of checklists can free up working memory while building team trust and synchronicity

LEARN TO LOVE THE TURBULENCE Creating a Flight Plan to Clear Any Goal for Takeoff

It would be great if all our goals could be reached without any disruption, but the reality is, reaching new heights requires us to get comfortable with the possibility of turbulence.

Preparedness and understanding are the strongest antidotes to turbulence.

Drawing upon her upcoming book,  Learn to Love the Turbulence: Flight Lessons on Becoming the Pilot in Command of Your Own Journey”,  Amelia shares what it takes to create a solid flight plan to reach any goal, identify and assess risk, and formulate backup plans to prepare for disruption, adversity, and  challenges.


  • How forecasting and proper planning can prepare us to make even the most difficult journeys.
  • The concept of 360 degree thinking to gain confidence in course correcting through and around major challenges.
  • The importance of “Aviate, Navigate, Communicate,” which allows us to distribute responsibility and prioritize appropriate action in times of stress and confusion.


OWN YOUR AIRPSACE: How to Be Bold, Resourceful, and Agile in Uncharted Territory

In aviation, airspace is the environment where aircraft fly. In the professional world, the “airspace” in which we operate can be thought of similarly. When we own our airspace, we know where we’re going, who we’re sharing airspace with, and we fully understand the rules of the airspace in which we choose to fly. Only then can we begin to fly with confidence, direction, and a sense of mission.

In this talk, your team will learn how to see the big picture, strategically avoid potential storms,  and identify their own unique headings to not only soar, but truly “own their airspace.”


  • The three levels of true situational awareness: Being a passenger, a pilot, or an air traffic controller.
  • To identify headwinds, tailwinds, and crosswinds in terms of professional challenges and opportunities.
  • To become comfortable flying “unusual headings” through a divergent creative thinking exercise.


THE SKY IS THE LIMIT: Your Flight Plan for Success

Amelia Rose Earhart knows how to bring a bold dream to life – even when all the odds were stacked against her.  In 2014, she followed in the footsteps of the American hero she was named after, Amelia Earhart, and flew a small plane (Pilatus PC-12NG) 28,000 nautical miles around the globe. To accomplish this, Amelia self-funded her instrument and commercial flight training, crafted a strategic business plan to design, fund, and market her around-the-world attempt, grew a large and passionate social following to spread the word, raised close to $2 million in partnerships with 28 corporations, and more.

In this motivational speech, Amelia not only inspires, but provides the practical guidance to create your own plan for success.


  • How to identify a route toward your goal, identify your personal “fuel sources,” and unlock methods to navigate through and around the storms that may pop up along your path
  • Why the use of checklists and procedures can free up working memory to allow for maximum focus,  creativity, and innovation
  • Ways to rely upon others in your “flight crew” to delegate tasks and increase confidence in the midst of change and challenge
