National Ocean Month is held every June, and celebrates all the resources and incredible creatures of the sea. It was originally created in 1983, with the goal to recognize the importance of harnessing the seas for our country’s national security and growth.

These two keynote speakers are oceanographers who are known for their successful explorations. From developing technology for underwater expeditions, to discovering the Titanic wreckage — they have both made great contributions to the oceans.

Dr. Robert Ballard

He also discovered hydrothermal vents and “black smokers” in the Galapagos Rift and East Pacific Rise. As a keynote speaker, Dr. Robert shares fascinating stories from his deep-sea expeditions, and connects them to topics such as science and goal setting.
