This was one of the best experiential learning experiences I have had during my nearly 45 year professional career.
Excellent opportunity to learn and connect leadership lessons through the lens of the Apollo Program.

Unique peek into the inner workings of a world class performance focused organization and how the leadership concepts that made them so successful can be utilized within your company too.

The Retail Experience truly delivered on our objectives "spot on" and was an outstanding learning experience for our Marketing and Sales team. There was an excellent mix of retail visits and tastemakers to create an enriching experience and learning.

The Conference Board Innovation Experience is an eye-opening and valuable program. The facilitated discussions provided a great opportunity to step back, learn, and think differently about opportunities and problems. The experience had an immediate impact on our management team, and challenged us to apply what we learned into our business planning and management approach.
Scott Clarke, Executive Vice President, Michelin North America
I found the Team USA Leadership Experience to be insightful, inspirational, and practical. The program provided a unique setting and an amazing blend of experts to consider new strategies and tools to take personal leadership and organizational performance to the next level.
Kevin Wilde, Organization Effectiveness and Chief Learning Officer, General Mills
I found the Apollo Leadership Experience to not only be informative and inspirational but also directly applicable to the leadership challenges that I face on a daily basis. The format of the training provided a great overview of the significant history of the Apollo program that is complemented by in-depth personal stories and then followed up by discussions that relate the topic discussed to present day situations. If I could recommend only one leadership course for managers of teams, then this is the course. It is perfect for working with teams charged with pushing boundaries and developing innovative messages/approaches.
Nicole Ream, Account Manager, MWH Global
The Apollo Experience is a unique leadership event -- in content, setting and impact. The Conference Board/NASA team create a compelling atmosphere of scientific intrigue and intellectual appeal, as they walk participants through an experience that develops a visceral appreciation of how to build a compelling sense of organizational mission and individual inspiration to excellence, which can be carried home to make new impact.
Susanne M. Bruyere, Associate Dean of Outreach, Cornell University, ILR School
The Apollo Leadership Experience is one of the best (if not the best) course I have been to. The Conference Board 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, Mission Control will be something I will remember for the rest of my life.
