Featured Keynote

Adam Steltzner

Technology Is Not The Obstacle

Described as “Einstein brilliance meets Johnny Cash cool”, Adam Steltzner can help you harness the power of curiosity to spark innovation and collaborative leadership across your entire organization. From aspiring rock star going nowhere fast to a history-making PhD rocket scientist, Adam Steltzner is recognized as one of NASA’s leading – and most unique – innovators. For nearly a decade, Adam led and inspired the breakthrough team that invented the ingenious “sky crane” landing system that so spectacularly landed the Mars rover, Curiosity, on the martian surface 300,000,000 miles from Earth in 2012. Next, Adam will lead NASA’s Mars 2020 Project that will gather core samples of Mars for scientific discovery. In his book, The Right Kind of Crazy: A True Story of Teamwork, Leadership and High Stakes Innovation, acclaimed by The Washington Post as “the best leadership book of the year”, and an “Editor’s Choice” by CEO READ, Adam brings to life unique strategies and perspectives on breaking through the seemingly impossible.
