Singing Space Oddity from the International Space Station was only the beginning…

CH_LATERAL_345x454In his passionate and inspiring talks, Hadfield imparts the useful and practical lessons he’s learned throughout his remarkable career – in the fields of leadership, teamwork, collaboration, science and technology – in space and on Earth.

Chris Hadfield leapt to worldwide fame by singing David Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’ while weightless in the International Space Station.

Canadian astronaut and international sensation Cmdr. Chris Hadfield harnessed the power of social media to make outer space accessible to millions, infusing a sense of wonder into our collective consciousness not felt since humanity first walked on the Moon.

As a metaphor for pursuing our dreams we’re often told to reach for the stars and Chris literally did it. The commitment, intelligence, sacrifice and hard work that allow him to achieve his dreams have taught him some valuable lessons over his 20+ year career – and have left him with some incredibly riveting stories and advice to give.

Now he wants to share his experiences.

Commander Chris Hadfield previously toured with Lateral Events in 2015.
