Lessons Learned from NASA and SpaceX
Drawing upon his multiple Space Shuttle and Space Station missions as a NASA astronaut and his over seven years working for Elon Musk as an executive at SpaceX, Dr. Garrett Reisman will share his lessons learned regarding inspiration, determination, vision, and innovation.

Astronaut Reisman has the distinction of being a key player in both the traditional NASA space program and the rapidly expanding commercial space flight industry. Using illuminating and humorous personal stories and an engaging multimedia presentation about both spaceflight past and future, Dr. Reisman will leave you with useful gems of wisdom while keeping you thoroughly entertained.

Innovation at NASA and SpaceX: Who does it better and why?
Who does it better and why? - As a NASA astronaut and an executive working for Elon Musk at SpaceX, Dr. Garrett Reisman had first-hand experience with two vastly different approaches to innovation, risk management and decision making. The freedom to fail is an essential requirement for breakthrough innovation, but how do you fail safely when your goal is to fly people in space?

Dr. Reisman will use an engaging multimedia presentation, humorous personal stories and examples from his 13 years at NASA and now 12 years and counting at SpaceX to illustrate the strengths and weaknesses of both approaches. This behind-the-scenes and entertaining look at human spaceflight past and future will provide lessons that you can use for yourself and your organization to increase innovation.
