Maurizio Cheli’s private and professional path is studded with successes and experiences fueled first of all by his passion for flying, and then by his passion for work, constantly searching for excellence in every field. Thanks to his experiences as an astronaut, chief test pilot and entrepreneur, Maurizio Cheli conveys the intensity and emotions of his extraordinary experiences to his audience, so as to stir important reflections, useful for the private and professional life. Maurizio proposes aimed motivational speeches for corporate events, conventions and workshops, using his many experiences and the metaphor of space. Maurizio offers ideas to turn every life into an extraordinary adventure and every business into an exceptional place, so that anyone can become the best pilot of his or her existence. Space, the last frontier, is a harsh environment for man, an extreme border. Its exploration requires highly sophisticated technical means and a team organization extremely attentive to every single detail. However, space exploration offers numerous lessons which can be applied also to the most varied organization and management areas, with particular reference to the new cognitive and behavioral models current in the business environment. Thus the “tale” of space lends itself to both analyzing contingent professional and business issues and, on a more general level, for motivational purposes of dynamization and optimization of human, technical and organizational resources.
