With this week marking the largest Applied Net to date, we’re rounding up the major themes attendees are sharing. Don’t forget to follow along with the official conference hashtag, #AppliedNet, on social media whether you’re with us or not!
An “Out of this World” Keynote
In the words of keynote Captain Scott Kelly, “The sky is not the limit.” Kelly, a U.S. Navy captain and astronaut, captivated the world during his record-breaking "Year in Space," which spawned both a PBS series and captivating memoir, and laid the groundwork for the future of space exploration. For his Applied Net appearance, he shared insights that challenged attendees to dream big, test the status quo, and “choose to do the hard things,” transforming everyone’s life — and work — worldview.
