About Steve Smith

Steve Smith made an audacious childhood dream to be an astronaut come true despite multiple setbacks. He is one of America's most experienced astronauts with 4 spaceflights and 7 spacewalks to repair the Hubble Space Telescope and to build the Space Station. At the conclusion of his career he was the third most experienced spacewalker in history and he twice received NASA's highest honor, The Distinguished Service Medal.

Steve's path to space was long - three decades - and arduous. That path ...

His very impactful keynote speech for our sales conference provided memorable insights on how to improve business performance. He shared management techniques and lessons learned from his successful missions to service Hubble and build the Space Station. Steve has the rare ability to make his remarks very personal even in a very large setting.

Tom Wroblewski - IBM Global Vice President

Our folks were mesmerized by his stories. Hearing Steve's experiences and his insights from his unique vantage point was very motivational! I appreciated his energy, humility, and his deep perspective on life. Steve shares a message of hope, born of his experiences as a true explorer.

Scott Shute - VP - Global Customer Operations / Chief Mindfulness Officer at LinkedIn

I knew he had the amazing content (resilient life journey, flying rockets, repairing Hubble, etc) but his effective application of his experiences and insights to our business priorities is what set Steve apart. He was given a vigorous standing ovation and feedback forms had him off the charts: his post event satisfaction scores were the highest of any speaker over the last five years.

Debra Cross - Program Executive, Digital and Social Strategy, IBM Digital Business Group

What I appreciated most about Steve was his heart of service to our team. He didn't just come to speak, he came to connect and engage on an individual basis. He generously gave of his time to meet everyone he could. He went above and beyond for the entire time.

Perry Holley - Author | Speaker | Teacher | Coach - Author of "Repeat the Remarkable"

Our audience was captivated by Steve's stories. He gave each audience member a reason to pursue their dreams with vigor! His eloquent description of Earth as an island in a vast ocean was deeply thought provoking Steve inspired audience action that will help make our world a better place.

Adam Stern - Environmental Executive

Steve did everything he could to ensure the success of this event! Before the event, he was outside welcoming guests. The audience was enthralled by Steve's stories about his pathway to space and inspiring messages about following one's dreams. The Museum audio tech, who has worked with many speakers (including astronauts), said Steve was far and away the best speaker he had ever heard there!
