"The Apollo Leadership Experience is one of the best (if not the best) course I have been to. Experience to Lead selected excellent materials, provided great examples, and put together an experience that could translate key learnings from the NASA Apollo days to our current business needs. The tours of the Rocket Park, the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory, and Mission Control will be something I will remember for the rest of my life."
"Having attended the Apollo program, I was keen to share the power of a leadership experience with our global management team…. I plan to make some immediate changes to our leadership structure and to our planning process to implement some of the lessons we learned; beyond that we are going to continue the work we started at Apollo."
