Explore topics affecting society, business, the environment, and our lives through the lens of the orbital perspective: trends, patterns and truths emerge that can shift our understanding and perception in a profoundly positive way. Discussing a long-term, big-picture perspective has the power to transform ourselves, our communities, our companies, our nations and the world. Individuals and Global companies, are better positioned and empowered more than ever to lead change and garner profound results.

The true leaders of the 21st century will be those who understand that we can no longer go it alone. The problems facing our world are too big, the challenges too critical and potential catastrophe too imminent to adhere to the old way of doing things. We must be able to find ways to set aside our differences and work together toward our common goals. The successful companies of the future will also realize that they can do well by doing good. Ron Garan knows firsthand that the definition of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is being turned on its head.

The desire to see over the next hill has propelled humanity to ever-increasing capabilities. In society’s rapidly changing landscape, not exploring new ways to push human capabilities is no longer an option. With any change comes risk. Ron Garan pulls from decades of risk management experience as a seasoned fighter pilot and astronaut and drives home the point that today, the riskiest course of action is to do nothing. Organizations need to embrace change and understand that the riskiest course of action is to keep doing the same things the same way.

Innovation is not doing the same thing better, it’s doing something completely new and radically better. The fundamentals of business are transforming and the impossible is becoming possible on a daily basis. Ron Garan illustrates how exponentially increasing technology is causing trends and economic engines to develop that, if embraced and accelerated, could have a profound, positive effect on the environment, society, and a business’s bottom line.

“Ron Garan has returned from his space missions not as someone who believes himself to be above us all, but as someone who remains down to Earth. Someone who knows that we are part of something bigger. What Ron has started around the world has made a deep impression on me and the 800 young leaders at the Pathfinder Conference.”

“Ron Garan delivered an extremely inspirational and thought-provoking address at the Association of MBAs’ Conference for International Deans and Directors. His personal insight into a field that very few of us will ever get to experience combined with strong messages and lessons for the audience ensured that his participation was one of the highlights of the event. Delegate feedback reflected this. I would not hesitate to recommend Ron for other conferences as someone who has a unique story and is able to tell it in a way that delivers at both the inspirational and educational level.”
