Speaking Engagements

Helen is often invited to speak worldwide at corporate, public, government, academic and school events, on subjects including teamwork, leadership and motivation. These relate to her career, training and experiences as an astronaut, which she combines with her subsequent management experience.

Helen takes her audience on a journey into space, describing the seemingly endless training and preparation, the launch, how weightlessness feels, what it is like living and working in space, the team work and team spirit, and adjusting to life back on Earth afterwards.

In his foreword to Helen’s autobiography Seize The Moment, Arthur C Clarke writes “Her account of the hours before the launch and the actual sensations during ascent into orbit is so gripping that any reader will feel a vicarious involvement. This is exactly what it must be like”.

On 15 December 2015, when Major Tim Peake began his mission to the International Space Station (ISS). Helen was invited to join the regular presenters (Professor Brian Cox and Dara Ó’Briain) to watch and commentate on the live docking of the Soyuz rocket with the ISS on BBC TV’s Stargazing Live.
