News & Notes: "All Systems Go" Brings Big Names to Orlando!

Out of this world and sometimes “other worldly” is how we would describe our first two Keynotes for IASA2017.  

Back from his historic record-breaking Year in Space, IASA will welcome NASA astronaut Captain Scott Kelly.  Captain Kelly has laid the groundwork for the future of space travel and exploration, and continues to garner media exposure like no other pioneer of our time. From the cover of TIME to live interviews on TODAY to features in Forbes and on CNN to a Twitter following that is rapidly approaching 1 million, the world remains in awe as we celebrate a hero’s return to the planet that is home, from an adventure that is extraordinary.  Our thanks to Majesco for their sponsorship of this keynote. 

In addition, IASA looks forward to hearing from Executive Producer and TV Host Mike Rowe, who has had hundreds of jobs and relished his role as a chronic freelancer.  He’s best known as the “dirtiest man on TV,” a title he earned on Discovery Channel’s hit TV series Dirty Jobs
where he travels to all 50 states; completed 300 different jobs; and transformed cable television into a landscape of swamps, sewers, and coal mines. Most recently, he launched The Way I Heard It, a five-minute weekly podcast of short mysteries for the curious mind with a short attention span.  As CEO of the mikeroweWORKS Foundation, Mike speaks regularly about the country’s dysfunctional relationship with work, highlighting the widening skills gap, and challenging the persistent belief that a four-year degree is automatically the best path to take for the most people.  Our thanks to Insurity for their sponsorship of this keynote.
           
Registration will open in January of 2017, mark your calendars to join us June 4 – 7 in Orlando, Florida because you won’t want to miss these two very different speakers share their experiences of keeping “All Systems Go!”
