- Fourth Man to Walk on the Moon
- Lunar Module Pilot on the Apollo 12
As humans we are dreamers and we are doers.
We were born that way.
It is in our hearts.
As an astronaut and the fourth person to walk on the moon, Alan Bean is dedicated to inspiring people to be the best they can be, so their families can be the best they can be, and their companies can be the best they can be.
The Apollo program was an impossible dream come true. Sending humans from Planet Earth to explore the moon and return was a glamorous and newsworthy dream, but no more important than the dreams we all have in our hearts right now. With this conviction, Alan will take each person in the audience with him as Lunar Module Pilot on the flight of Apollo 12 and along the way present some thoughts and ideas that will help individuals and teams reach for their own professional and personal stars.
By talking with, and listening to the client prior to an event, Alan custom tailors each speech around the theme of the client's event and the specific goals they wish to emphasize. He does this by telling stories from personal experiences during his 18-year career in NASA, Alan can focus on a broad variety of subjects from teamwork, adapting successfully to change, achieving at maximum potential, and thinking more creatively. Alan will share his ideas on effective leadership, and effective followership, as well as ways organizations can accomplish their goals and more. Captain Bean will talk about the most important life lesson he learned in his 18 years as a NASA Astronaut.
Captain Bean knows about reaching for the stars, organizationally and individually. In 1973, he was Commander of Skylab Mission II (SL-3) where he lived 59 days in space, orbiting 270 miles above our planet Earth. Under his leadership his crew accomplished 150% of their pre-mission goals - a record unsurpassed before or since.
