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, Amelia 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, Amelia 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.

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.

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.
LEARNING TO LOVE THE TURBULENCE
When we set our minds toward any big goal, we imagine creating our plan and executing it to completion. We tell ourselves that if we work hard enough, we will soar from Point A to Point B gracefully, leaving others to wonder how we ever pulled it off. We begin our journey and everything seems fine. The wind is at our backs and the view is spectacular. Suddenly, there’s a terrifying jolt. We’ve been thrown off course by something we never saw coming: turbulence. Our well thought out plan is suddenly thrown out the window. We are now in crisis mode. THIS was NOT supposed to happen. Which way is up? Who is on our team? Is there ANY safe place to land? This is the point where we have to ask ourselves if we are doomed for a crash landing or if we are willing to learn to love the turbulence.

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.
