Leadership in Turbulent Times
June 22 UTC-7
The second Leadership in Turbulent Timeswebinar features leaders who have been honored with induction into the Space & Satellite Hall of Fameand 20 Under 35 honorees. Exchanging ideas, challenging each other and finding common ground, they deepen our understanding of what it means to lead in a high-pressure, complex technology sector and where the innovations of today will lead the industry in the future.
Topics for this webinar include:
- Breaching the Barriers to Entry
Once upon a time, the space and satellite industry consisted of niches with high barrier to entry, in which competition was mild and change was leisurely. The $26 billion invested in the sector since 2009 has changed all that. In this panel, members of the Hall of Fame and 20 Under 35 answer questions about leading teams and organizations at a time when a new and still undefined industry ecosystem is taking root. Speakers include: Henry Goldberg, Partner at Goldberg, Godles, Weiner & Wright, Joost van Oorschot, Founder and CEO of Manna Electric SA and Cate Van Oppen, Manager of Strategic Partnerships at the Kymeta Corporation.
- How to Keep Innovation Going for Half a Century
How do successful businesses keep innovating long after corporate adolescence is past and maturity sets in? It is a question that the current generation of startups will face as well as more established companies going all out to survive and thrive in turbulent times. We gather Hall of Famers and 20 Under 35 executives from Hughes Network Systems, one of the most storied names in the business, for a case study of achieving repeated innovation over the long haul.
- Leadership Jam
Careers have inflection points, where what you want and what you’re really good at intersect to produce a leap forward. To open up that topic, we pair off members of the Hall of Fame and 20 Under 35 to ask each other questions about finding their professional bliss in an industry undergoing rapid and disruptive change. Speakers include: Kathy Lueders, Associate Administrator for Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate at NASA, Terry Hart, Former Astronaut and Professor of Practice in Mechanical Engineering at Lehigh University, Giulia Federico, Co-Founder of Space Products and Innovation (SPiN) GmbH, Dr. Jeffrey Stuart, Technologist/GNC Engineer at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Bethany Downer, Chief Communications Officer for the Hubble Space Telescope at the European Space Agency.
