Visionaries inspire us to want to be part of something bigger than ourselves.
Visionaries change the world! They are the dreamers, change-makers, innovators, influencers, thought leaders, and disruptors who are fearless and relentless in their pursuit to create a better world while inspiring everyone around them.
How do visionaries make a dream reality? By being intuitively creative and insightful. They are constantly studying and observing, and are particularly good at picking up trends and opportunities to disrupt the status quo. From the first female fighter pilot to animators to a top-notch designer and everything in between, these visionary leaders and pioneers captivate us and inspire the workforce every day by sharing their art, science, creativity, passion, purpose, and innovation. These speakers will inspire you to think outside of the box and push boundaries.
We all saw Top Gun, right?
Of course we did! And what did that movie not have? Female fighter pilots! Right around the time the movie was coming out Carey Lohrenz was in a training program where no female had ever graduated to be a fighter pilot. She knew she was going to be the first and she was determined to do just that! She loved her first day at Miramar and we love her – “she had the need, the need for speed!” More about Carey Lohrenz

We all need to do a better job of that. More about Jonathan Adler
