    Amelia Rose Earhart's Speech Descriptions

    Accomplished pilot Amelia Rose Earhart uses her adventures to remind us that we forge our identity and legacy through our actions – not what others think of us. Earhart’s flight around the world along with everything she had to do to make it happen, empowers audiences to chase their own new horizons and big dreams. Furthermore, she imparts sound advice on how to construct a solid flight plan and adjust for unforeseen turbulence, instrumental tools that are applicable no matter what your goal may be.

    Learning to Love the Turbulence: Creating a Flight Plan to Clear Any Goal for Takeoff
    When we set our minds toward any big goal, we imagine creating our plan and executing it to completion. We tell ourselves that if we work hard enough, we will soar from Point A to Point B gracefully, leaving others to wonder how we ever pulled it off. We begin our journey and everything seems fine. The wind is at our backs and the view is spectacular. Suddenly, there’s a terrifying jolt. We’ve been thrown off course by something we never saw coming: turbulence. Our well thought out plan is suddenly thrown out the window. We are now in crisis mode. THIS was NOT supposed to happen. Which way is up? Who is on our team? Is there ANY safe place to land? This is the point where we have to ask ourselves if we are doomed for a crash landing or if we are willing to learn to love the turbulence.

    Key takeaways:
    1. Become the pilot of your life with this flight-based leadership training that is perfect for any audience looking to advance their career and reach their goals.
    2. Learn to embrace and overcome obstacles.
    3. Create a personal flight log tailored toward your own personal and professional goals, filled with eight weeks of content to propel your journey.
    4. Your team will come away with a pilot’s mindset, determination, and a perspective sure to distinguish their ideas from the crowd.

    How a Strategic Flight Plan Can Get You and Your Team to Your Final Destination
    Some of the best ideas are never fulfilled because the destination is unclear and the journey is not mapped. In this keynote, Amelia Rose Earhart helps attendees reach their destination from take-off to landing. Using the strategies she used to fly around the world, Amelia’s content is both inspiring and thought provoking.

    • Create a successful flight plan
    • Trust your flight crew
