Imagine being a business leader who has benefited from exclusive insights by the very people operating at the cutting edge of human achievement and exploration, tested to the limits.
Well, now you can. University of the West of Scotland, through its sector leading partnership with the International Space School Education Trust (ISSET), is giving you a fantastic opportunity to embark upon a one day CPD leadership course like no other and hear from inspirational speakers who have spent time as an astronaut in space, been part of NASA during some of its ground-breaking missions, and been at the forefront of scientific endeavour.
NASA.. ONE OF THE WORLD’S BEST PERFORMING ORGANISATIONS…
NASA is not only the world’s leading space organisation, but it’s widely-recognised as the top federal employer in the USA, particularly when it comes to leadership, empowerment, strategic management, innovation, training and development.
UWS is offering you the chance to draw upon the experience of top NASA employees and astronauts to help you improve levels of performance, creativity and job satisfaction in your own organisation.
The unique programme is designed to help you address the challenges you face in your industry and hear from some of the most highly trained people on the planet, who, through their various endeavours in space and in the space industry, have literally looked at the world in a different way.
WHO YOU’LL HEAR FROM:
NASA Astronaut, Dr. Michael Foale, CBE
Born in rural Lincolnshire, Michael was the first British-born NASA astronaut and has flown into space on six missions. His experience includes being Commander of the International Space Station (ISS), bringing the Hubble Space Telescope back to life and playing an integral role in saving the Russian ‘Mir’ Space Station as it tumbled out of control around Earth, following the only collision in outer space.
Michael has significant understanding of risk management, particularly in confronting the most hostile environment encountered by humanity and preparing teams for operations that involve high stress and pressure.
Sarah Murray, Vehicle Systems Performance & Analysis
Sarah is the Council Executive for NASA’s Mission Support Council & Partnership Council at NASA HQ. She is responsible for facilitating NASA’s governance process across NASA centres throughout the US.
She has been Deputy Chief of Space Flight Training Management where she was the Chair of the International Training Control Board, responsible for training astronauts and cosmonauts.
Chris Barber, Founder and Director of the International Space School Educational Trust (ISSET)
Chris gained BSc and Master’s degrees in mathematics which opened the door for him to work in finance with a major oil company in London and then as an underwriter of loss caused by insolvency in the City.
Chris founded the International Space School Educational Trust (ISSET) in the nineties and received great support from the top echelons of NASA.
He has led ISSET to develop dozens of science research experiments that are carried out by astronauts aboard the International Space Station. He also heads an organisational leadership and educational consultancy which has enhanced the process of change and improvement in a range of organisations across four continents.
