Guest Speaker Erik Lindbergh will do a presentation on “Personal Air Vehicles, Prize Philanthropy, & Storytelling — Innovation For A Resilient Future.”
A commercial rated pilot, artist, entrepreneur and speaker, Erik Lindbergh is the grandson of Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh. Erik is the Founder of Powering Imagination whose mission is to promote and showcase advances in aviation by: creating aviation adventures and events, telling amazing stories that are exciting, compelling and just a bit humorous, entertaining our audience of tech-savvy, adventure-oriented viewers, and creating outstanding marketing value for our sponsors.
Erik currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Aviation High School in Seattle, and NatureBridge – Olympic National Park campus. Previous experience includes serving as Vice President and Trustee of the X PRIZE Foundation, Chairman of the board of the Lindbergh Foundation, Public relations for Columbia Aircraft Manufacturing, Spokesperson for Immunex, and National Spokesperson for AOPA’s Project Pilot Mentorship Program. Erik is also an accomplished artist whose unique sculpture and furniture designs out of wood and bronze can be viewed at LindberghGallery.com
Erik’s work with the XPRIZE Foundation showed him that the impossible dream is indeed possible. “We shifted the world’s perspective on spaceflight with the Ansari XPRIZE, and in the process, we unleashed the potential for incentive prizes to be applied to the great social, technical, and environmental problems of our time. Now, we must realize that potential.”
A master storyteller, Erik uses exciting images, video clips and humor to take his audiences on a journey from the past, to the present and into the revolutionary future of flight. This journey sets the stage for Powering Imagination. Contact: [email protected]
