Alan Bean

Astronaut and Fourth Man to Walk on the Moon

As humans we are dreamers and we are doers. We were born that way. It is in our hearts.
As an astronaut and the fourth person to walk on the moon, Alan Bean is dedicated to inspiring people to be the best they can be, so their families can be the best they can be, and their companies can be the best they can be.

The Apollo program was an impossible dream come true. Sending humans from Planet Earth to explore the moon and return was a glamorous and newsworthy dream, but no more important than the dreams we all have in our hearts right now. With this conviction, Alan will take each person in the audience with him as Lunar Module Pilot on the flight of Apollo 12 and along the way present some thoughts and ideas that will help individuals and teams reach for their own professional and personal stars.

By talking with, and listening to the client prior to an event, Alan custom tailors each speech around the theme of the client’s event and the specific goals they wish to emphasize. He does this by telling stories from personal experiences during his 18-year career in NASA, Alan can focus on a broad variety of subjects from teamwork, adapting successfully to change, achieving at maximum potential, and thinking more creatively. Alan will share his ideas on effective leadership, and effective followership, as well as ways organizations can accomplish their goals and more. Captain Bean will talk about the most important life lesson he learned in his 18 years as a NASA Astronaut.

Captain Bean knows about reaching for the stars, organizationally and individually. In 1973, he was Commander of Skylab Mission II (SL-3) where he lived 59 days in space, orbiting 270 miles above our planet Earth. Under his leadership his crew accomplished 150% of their pre-mission goals – a record unsurpassed before or since.

Apollo 11 Anniversary - CBS News w/Buzz Aldrin, Alan Bean & Charlie Duke

As humans we are dreamers and we are doers. We were born that way. It is in our hearts.
As an astronaut and the fourth person to walk on the moon, Alan Bean is dedicated to inspiring people to be the best they can be, so their families can be the best they can be, and their companies can be the best they can be.

The Apollo program was an impossible dream come true. Sending humans from Planet Earth to explore the moon and return was a glamorous and newsworthy dream, but no more important than the dreams we all have in our hearts right now.

Under his leadership his crew accomplished 150% of their pre-mission goals – a record unsurpassed before or since.

Reach For The Stars

To each of his motivational and inspirational presentations, Alan Bean brings a powerful and perceptive viewpoint – one deeply rooted in a rare and life-changing experience. As the lunar module pilot on Apollo 12, he stood on the moon, saw the earth rise and watched as it hung silently and delicately against a black and infinite universe. It was the ultimate group photo of all earth’s inhabitants and one that left Alan with the supreme conviction that as human beings, our only limits are those we impose on ourselves.

Alan is a natural and persuasive communicator. He speaks from experience and from the heart. Covering topics that range from teamwork, achievement, risk taking and goal setting to attitude control, maximizing potential, creative thinking and leadership, Alan customizes each presentation to the specific goals of his clients. While no two presentations are ever the same, his ultimate message is always profound: with extra effort and dedication to accomplishment – all things are possible.

Alan shares his unique view of two universes – the one in space and the personal one each of us carries within – and motivates us make the most of the roles we play in both. For organizations and the individuals who make them up, nothing is more important that the dreams we hold today, and with a relatively short window space in which to achieve those dreams, what better time is there than now to reach for those dreams?

Tom Hanks

What one must understand about Alan Bean is he is the only artist to have ever walked on the moon. No poet has ever been to the lunar surface, nor any journalist, architect nor songwriter. In the realm of the Arts, it has fallen upon Alan Bean to be the one moonwalker to turn hard data brought back from the moon into something other than numbered photographs. The images that Al has committed to canvas, then, are important, inspiring, and priceless works of art. Not only has he painted the moon, he's been there.

Neil Armstrong

Alan Bean and his astroartistry recreate the drama and excitement of man's exploration of the moon as only could be chronicled by one who has been there.
