Why are some companies ordinary while others can reach for the stars? When you look at companies like Tesla and Amazon, they are changing the world. But not every company can do the extraordinary—unless they have a great leader. Gregory Robinson, a 33-year NASA veteran, knows all about leading an organization to accomplish the extraordinary. In 2018, Gregory was tasked with leading the $10 billion James Webb Telescope Program, which at the time was billions of dollars over budget and years behind schedule. In doing so, he oversaw thousands of scientists, engineers, and staff in multiple organizations and countries. With its successful launch, the telescope changed our understanding of the universe. In this dynamic talk, Gregory shares his insights on how to lead others to do the extraordinary. Audiences will come away with how to communicate, build trust, and envision, so they can accomplish their own extraordinary goals.

In 2022, Time Magazine declared Gregory Robinson as one of the most influential people. With his determined leadership, he helped launch the $10 billion James Webb Telescope, which changed our understanding of the universe. But his future success was never guaranteed. Born ninth among eleven children to tobacco sharecroppers in Virginia, Gregory had to attend racially segregated schools and earn a football scholarship in order to put himself through college. In this moving talk, Gregory will share how he went from a sharecropper’s son to one of the most respected leaders in NASA and one of Time Magazine’s most influential people.
