Named by the Jaycees as one of the “Top Ten Young Americans”, Amelia Rose Earhart recreated and symbolically completed the 1937 flight of her namesake, Amelia Mary Earhart. Her 28,000 mile flight around the world in a single engine aircraft became a symbol of determination, courage and empowerment for anyone who has ever decided to seek new horizons.
Fortune 500 Companies, The United States Air Force Academy, dozens of Universities and Civic Organizations, just to name a few, have been impacted and thousands have been jolted awake by Amelia’s contagious enthusiasm for action, her raw and charming leadership style and her ability to take audiences along on their own flight around the world with her story.
Amelia is the president of the Fly With Amelia Foundation, a non-profit providing flight training scholarships to young women across America. She spent 12 years on Denver’s NBC affiliate, KUSA-TV reporting on breaking news, traffic, conducting interviews, and the host of Colorado and Company. She is an active member of the Board of Directors at Wings Over the Rockies, Colorado’s Official Air and Space Museum and is currently working toward her multi-engine aircraft rating.
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. Suddenly, our well thought out plan is 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?
In this keynote, Amelia Rose Earhart helps the attendees, from take-off to landing, reach their destination. Using the strategies she used to fly around the world, Amelia’s content is both inspiring and thought provoking.
Amelia shares the same fundamentals needed for business success:
“Sit tight, stay calm, we’ll let you know as soon as we learn more. Once again, we thank you for flying the friendly skies…”
We’re all stuck in a personal and professional holding patterns as we navigate through the difficult challenges of the Coronavirus pandemic. Our businesses are basically grounded, our families are forced to attend school from home. It all sounds more like the latest Netflix binge than real life. Unfortunately, this is our current reality and we’ve got to figure out how to fly this plane. As an around the world pilot, Amelia has faced challenges that have grounded her flights, closed borders and rocked her wings so hard she thought they’d snap right off.
As a speaker, she has led Fortune 500 leaders toward their personal goals by discussing the importance of learning to love the turbulence. During this bumpy time, Amelia provides virtual discussions and workshops as webinars and/or pre-produced videos, specifically tailored to help you and your team stay in flight during this holding pattern we are clearly going to be in for quite a while. This discussion between your team will include actionable ways your team can reduce “fuel burn” by prioritizing tasks, create a work from home a routine and checklist to maintain straight and level “flight”, and most importantly, discussing several ways to quiet the mental games our “what if” minds use to distract us away from productivity and success.

I love how she was able to stay true to herself and use her pilot terminology but still relate it to what we are all experiencing in today’s world and with this pandemic, without constantly using the word “pandemic.” She brought so much energy, passion, and enthusiasm to the series!
