Robert "Hoot" Gibson was fantastic! Our attendees loved him. We had great communication leading up to the event and he really delivered.

How was Hoot Gibson in a word? Delightful. In lots more words? He was wonderful! From speaking with him on the phone ahead of the presentation, to meeting/greeting him the day of the presentation, to his presentation itself, Hoot was the epitome of charm and grace. I loved and appreciated his humble approach to the hundreds of amazing experiences he's had and his willingness to connect with everyone on a personal level. You can see his passion for aviation shine bright with every word he speaks and the sparkle in his eye. For being as much of a legend as he is, he is also incredibly down-to-earth (weird pun for an astronaut, I guess) and reachable. He spent quality time with our attendees and made real connections. I do not hesitate to give him a glowing recommendation to anyone looking for a smart, professional, interesting, and thoroughly engaging speaker.
