Robert Ballard – Motivational Speaker

3 Programs By This Presenter

In his talk, through the use of stunning high quality images and personal accounts, Dr. Ballard will present his most recent work in deep water exploration and the technology of tele-presence. He discusses motivating people to think outside the box, learning how to deal with failure-that failure is just a step along the way to success, motivating children to choose careers in math, science and engineering; and how to live your dream.

Dr. Ballard uses the emerging science of deep-water exploration and advances in technology to share his findings from numerous expeditions where he searched for, located and document sites of historical, geological and biological significance.

Dr. Ballard shares his incredible story of the significant discovery of the Titanic, how sharing his vision with the US Navy afforded him the opportunity to embark on that world famous expedition. He relates advances in technology since then, his use of robots and unmanned submersibles today, and what the future holds for deep-sea exploration.

“Dr. Ballard was fantastic! He was engaged with everyone he spoke with. He refused to go to the Green Room and instead roamed the auditorium and foyer and spoke to people who were coming in for his talk. That was a wonderful touch and people were stoked they were able to meet him one on one. I overheard many comment that his presentation was the best we had this year. It’s spring break here for K-12 so there were many families in attendance and he stayed after in the auditorium to sign books and National Geo’s!”

“The presentation was amazing and all of our attendees couldn’t stop talking about him! Our survey question “what did you like best about the Forum,” 50% of the people have responded with Dr. Ballard. Dr. Ballard was friendly, on time, and took time after his presentation to take pictures and greet and chat with our attendees.”
