Captain Alan Bean, the fourth man in history to set foot on the moon, knows about reaching for the stars, both organizationally and individually. In 1973, he was the Commander of Skylab Mission II (SL III), where he lived 59 days in space, orbiting 270 miles above Earth, leading his crew to accomplish 150% of their pre-mission goals – a record unsurpassed before or since. Captain Bean shows why human beings are the most extraordinary creatures in the universe. We are unique because as far as we know we are the only beings in the universe whose only limits are those we place on ourselves.
As a NASA Astronaut, Bean learned that people do not have to be especially gifted or talented to do something great, and that no matter the level of past achievement, with extra effort and dedication they can be great in the future. Organizations and individuals are almost always significantly better than they know or believe. In his presentation, Alan will take each person in the audience along with him on the flight of Apollo 12 and along the way present some thoughts and ideas that will help each individual reach for his or her own professional and personal stars. By talking with and listening to the client prior to an event, Alan custom tailors each speech around the theme and specific goals of the event; the emphasis can focus on a broad variety of subjects from teamwork, high achievement, risk taking, goal setting, attitude control, achieving maximum potential, creative thinking, leadership, and effective followership, to showing how a company and an individual can find ways to accomplish specific goals.
Captain Bean is also an extraordinary artist, creating paintings that artistically record for future generations mankind’s first exploration of another world, and illustrates his personal journey to the moon through a visual extravaganza of pictures and paintings of outer space.
Reaching for the Stars
Tailored to each audience’s particular goals, Captain Bean’s program is entertaining and motivational and incorporates slides of his mission to the moon on Apollo 12. By offering a look inside the hearts and minds of astronauts, scientists, and engineers who worked together as a team, took risks, and made an impossible dream a reality, he inspires audience members to realize they can accomplish equally challenging goals in their own lives.
