Jim Lovell and Gene Kranz to deliver Synergy keynote
Date: Monday, April 8
Time: 1 p.m.
Where: Valley of the Sun Ballroom
What is the future? We know it’s not the past. We know it is evolutionary, not revolutionary. We know it comes from the natural human aspiration toward progress. And finally, we know it comes from seemingly ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
Such is one concrete story based on shaping the future: the U.S. space program. Key2Act is proud to announce that its 2019 Synergy keynote speakers will be Gene Kranz and Jim Lovell of Apollo 13 fame.
In a joint presentation, Kranz, Apollo 13's flight director, and Lovell, commander of the mission, will discuss and define teamwork and explain how competence, perseverance and leadership combine to assure ultimate victory in any circumstances. Be it in a crisis situation or an ordinary day at the office, this dynamic team emphasizes the importance of control in communication and individual responsibility. For both men, who began their careers at the very beginning of the technological age, success as a unit is intertwined with focused leadership, trust and values, motivation, and the ability to understand that there is no achievement without risk.
