IDEA is proud to announce our Keynote Speaker! 

After travelling over 143 million miles and 340 days in space, we are thrilled that newly-retired NASA astronaut Captain Scott Kelly will be joining us in St. Paul, MN this summer.

He will share life lessons and personal stories that reveal unique and valuable advice on pushing one's own limits, along with insight on the leadership and teamwork required in demanding conditions and challenges he faced in space - such as long-term deprivation from loved ones and Planet Earth. 
Plan to join us on Tuesday, June 21 at the St. Paul RiverCentre at the Keynote Luncheon to hear this American hero share his story. 

P.S. Make plans to pick up your autographed photo and meet Captain Kelly in the IDEA Trade Show after the Luncheon!
