Aerospace Leadership with Astronaut Michael Barratt


Find out what it takes to be a leader in space. Astronaut Michael Barratt will be speaking to us on how to be bold and courageous in developing new technologies, services and products as consultants.

Tech Talk: Our active NASA astronaut Michael Barratt will be speaking on Aerospace Leadership. To become an astronaut, you must be bold and fearless in stepping forward to promote our national interests. As consultants we also need to be bold and courageous as we step forward to develop new technologies, products and services for our customers and clients. Michael will share with us today these leadership skills that are needed to step forward and take the risk of space flight to develop new technologies for our country. He will give us leadership skills and tips on how to be bold and how to step forward in our pursuits to become better consultants and how to be proactive on developing new technologies and services. As a medical doctor Astronaut Barratt will be providing our astronauts vital information on their 2 1/2-year mission to Mars. Find out what it takes to prepare our astronauts for this mission to Mars! Are you ready for space flight?
