Our 2022 Keynote Speaker

Chris Hadfield

Astronaut, Pilot, Engineer, Commander of the International Space Station, Best-Selling Author

First Canadian Commander of The International Space Station Colonel Chris Hadfield has had the type of career one can only dream of – just like he did as a child watching the Apollo 11 moon landing.

Chris Hadfield is a Canadian icon. He's proud of where he comes from and he's passionate about his work. He's humble and charming because that's how Canadians are raised. With his feet firmly planted on Earth now, he works tirelessly to inspire young people to do what they love (especially, if it's space-related) and to be fascinated by the world around them. Occasionally, he's been known to dabble in some music and play a tune for his friends and family.
