Amelia Rose Earhart            

President of the Fly With Amelia Foundation; One of the Youngest Women to Fly Around the World in a Single Engine Aircraft

As a boundary-pushing around the world pilot, Amelia Rose Earhart knows exactly what it takes to venture into uncharted territory with confidence.

With the odds stacked against her, Earhart not only trained to become a pilot, but to become the type of pilot to choose honor, the person she was named after, Amelia Mary Earhart, by piloting a single-engine airplane (Pilatus PC-12NG) 28,000 Nautical Miles around the globe. To accomplish this, Earhart developed a flight plan all her own, and while reporting full-time as on air, TV helicopter reporter, completed private, instrument and commercial pilot training, crafted an entrepreneurial and strategic business plan to design, fund and market her around the world attempt, raised close to $2 million in partnerships with 28 corporations, founded and ran the Fly With Amelia Foundation, which sent numerous teenage girls to flight school, and more.

Today, Earhart is a full-time speaker, podcast host, and artist living in Denver, CO who incorporates the lessons of her 2014 global flight into every aspect of her professional and personal life. She is excited to share the remaining funds from the Fly With Amelia Foundation to another aviation charity helping to promote women in aviation. From the Air Force Thunderbirds, to the Reagan Library, to corporations like Capital One, Lockheed Martin and United Healthcare, Earhart’s list of clients who trust her message of agility continues to grow.

Earhart wrote "The Ups and the Downs of Turbulence" with author Kristin Clark Taylor during Winter of 2020. Memorabilia from Earhart’s flight around the world can be found at her permanent display at Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum in Denver, CO.

Own Your Airspace: Taking a pilot’s perspective on navigating life’s turbulence

Description: There will be successful companies in 2021 and beyond. What’s one thing these teams will need to have in common? A willingness to venture into uncharted territory. In the midst of professional and personal change, teams who take action on bold, resourceful, and never-before imagined solutions are the ones that will find growth.

As a boundary-pushing around the world pilot, Amelia Rose Earhart knows exactly what it takes to venture into uncharted territory; now she’s sharing her one of a kind perspective and strategy with the world.

With the odds stacked against her, Amelia brought her own bold idea to life in 2014, piloting a small plane (Pilatus PC-12NG) 28,000 Nautical Miles around the globe. To accomplish this, Amelia self-funded her private, instrument and commercial flight training, went through open-water survival training, crafted a strategic business plan to design, fund and market her around the world attempt, help to design and build a custom auxiliary fuel tank for the trip, grew a large and passionate social following to spread the word, raised close to $2 million in partnerships with 28 corporations, founded and ran a charity organization to send numerous teenage girls to flight school, and more.

In Amelia’s keynote, she shares 3 non-negotiables that she used in her successful, uncharted trip around the globe, which is directly transferrable to the business world. Whether the attendees are CEOs/leaders, a sales team, or an entire team of an organization, Amelia’s talk contains actionable takeaways that people can start implementing immediately.

Consider All Directions: Course correction in action When unexpected challenges force us to choose a different path toward reaching our goal, it can be tempting to lose momentum, or even give up completely. In this breakout session, flexibility and options for success are unlocked and explored, as Amelia shares stories and strategies centered around seeking new paths with confidence and creativity. Gone are the days when responding to challenges with a simple and rigid North, East, South West approach is acceptable, and here, Amelia empowers teams to unlock all directions of their compass through course-correction techniques to help navigate the roughest storms.

Weight & Balance: How to turn small shifts into massive results In this insightful and actionable flight lesson, Amelia leads teams through an honest assessment of determining which practices, habits and limiting ideas can be shifted, consolidated or eliminated all together in order to fly further than ever imagined. This lesson packs an extra punch, as Amelia uses actual equipment from her custom designed 200 gallon auxiliary fuel tank from her global flight to emphasize the importance of prioritizing fuel over unnecessary baggage.

Plan for obstacles: The power of understanding worst case scenarios Creating a well-researched plan for tackling potential pitfalls and challenges is an absolute must when exploring uncharted territory. Developing a deep understanding of what could go wrong when innovating and growing, boosts self-confidence, presence, and instills calmness in the face of adversity if and when they arrive. In stressful situations, our body’s hormone levels rise, affecting our thinking, perception, and memory retrieval. Through an in-depth breakdown of how and why pilots undergo open water survival training, Amelia explains how rehearsing for emergency situations in the professional environment can boost confidence, illuminate options and boost performance.

CREW

In her second CREW keynote appearance, around the world pilot Amelia Rose Earhart invites you into the cockpit for a raw and invigorating discussion about the importance of learning to love the turbulence.

Inspired by the tenacious around the world flight attempt of her namesake, Amelia Rose took to the skies with the goal of flying a single engine aircraft 28,000 miles around the globe. Just months before her launch, Amelia’s flight nearly came to a very public crash landing.

Take flight with Amelia as she shares her realtime response to a navigating and course correcting a flight plan, but more importantly, navigating a life.

Amelia’s keynote message lingers with her audiences, combining skills from a decade long career as a NBC TV Anchor & Host in Denver, CO with an invigorating real life account of a successful (& turbulent) attempt to fly around the world.

“The only aircraft that never experiences turbulence is the one that stays locked up in a hangar. That’s not what planes were built for and that’s not what you and I were built for either. We were built to take flight.” -Amelia Rose Earhart

Virtual Program: The Holding Pattern

"Sit tight, stay calm, we’ll let you know as soon as we learn more. Once again, we thank you for flying the friendly skies…”

We’re all stuck in a personal and professional holding patterns as we navigate through the difficult challenges of the Coronavirus pandemic. Our businesses are basically grounded, our families are forced to attend school from home. It all sounds more like the latest Netflix binge than real life. Unfortunately, this is our current reality and we’ve got to figure out how to fly this plane. As an around the world pilot, Amelia has faced challenges that have grounded her flights, closed borders and rocked her wings so hard she thought they’d snap right off.

As a speaker, she has led Fortune 500 leaders toward their personal goals by discussing the importance of learning to love the turbulence. During this bumpy time, Amelia provides virtual discussions and workshops as webinars and/or pre-produced videos, specifically tailored to help you and your team stay in flight during this holding pattern we are clearly going to be in for quite a while. This discussion between your team will include actionable ways your team can reduce “fuel burn” by prioritizing tasks, create a work from home a routine and checklist to maintain straight and level “flight”, and most importantly, discussing several ways to quiet the mental games our “what if” minds use to distract us away from productivity and success.

Defining Your Own True North: The Beauty Of Uncharted Territory

Most people will tell you that they have a dream… only to immediately begin listing the reasons why it will never happen. Amelia Earhart began fundraising for her global flight with zero dollars in the bank. Upon launch, she had singlehandedly earned the unwavering global support of twenty-one leading aerospace and aviation organizations. Defining our own “True North," we can live a life set on fire.

Who Do You Think You Are?: Crafting Identity After Defeat

Just months before launching on a 28,000 mile flight around the world, Amelia Earhart discovered, after thirty years of believing that she was related to the original, that she did not share a bloodline. Can we recover after our personal or business identities are put into question? This emotionally engaging talk outlines ten ways to make a comeback after it seems like the whole world is against you.
