Past Speaking Events
Ron uses space exploration to speak about various topics from the “Orbital Perspective”. The topics he loves to speak about include:
- Risk Management
- Corporate Social Responsibility
- Social Media/Marketing
- Social Entrepreneurship
- Business Startups
Ron Garan has returned from his space missions not as someone who believes himself to be above us all, but as someone who remains down to Earth. Someone who knows that we are part of something bigger. What Ron has started around the world has made a deep impression on me and the 800 young leaders at the Pathfinder Conference.
Ron is a tremendous inspiration to our global health students and faculty at Duke. His global perspective and message that “nothing is impossible” resonates with audiences young and old.
Ron is an extremely compelling speaker who masterfully blends his diverse professional experience and experience as an ambassador for the social business movement into a message that has left a profound positive impact on countless individuals and organizations. Using stunning imagery and compelling dialog, Ron puts the issues and challenges facing all organizations into a whole new perspective – an orbital perspective. We recommend Ron as an inspirational speaker at all our conferences and to our corporate clients.
Ron Garan delivered an extremely inspirational and thought provoking address at the 2013 Association of MBAs’ Conference for International Deans and Directors. His personal insight into a field that very few of us will ever get to experience combined with strong messages and lessons for the audience ensured that his participation was one of the highlights of the event. Delegate feedback reflected this. I would not hesitate to recommend Ron for other conferences as someone who has a unique story and is able to tell it in a way that delivers at both the inspirational and educational level.
Keynotes and Speeches
When we explore topics affecting society, business, the environment, and our lives through the lens of the orbital perspective, trends, patterns, and truths emerge that can shift our understanding and perception in a profoundly positive way. Discussing a long-term and big picture perspective has the power to affect change in ourselves, our communities, our nations and our world.
