“ Tom Jones was AWESOME – get him again!”
"Tom is an accomplished speaker. His background and experience provided a unique position for our particular event.
...Our only mistake was not giving him more time on the agenda."
-- from an Event Coordinator, June 2009
"Thank you for the admiration and respect for your co-workers that you shared with us.
Most people only refer to themselves and their [own] accomplishments, but you included all."
-- from a listener, May 2009
"I'm writing to tell you what a smash hit our speaker was at our Luncheon...
Astronaut Tom Jones held [our] audience spellbound while he related
his involvement as a mission specialist on several Space Shuttle flights. His talk was informative,
entertaining, and punctuated with many witty remarks that won the audience's goodwill...
His visuals were beautifully done and complemented his talk wonderfully.
-- from a Program Chair
"...many people have said it was one of the best presentations they have ever attended.
Your words and pictures were inspirational to everyone in the audience,
young and old alike. We could not have asked for a better presentation...
than the one you delivered."
-- from a Program Chairman, November 2006
"Thank you for the most inspiring and human presentation we have had...We heard rave reviews from many people
that this was a "not to miss" event."
-- from a business group president, 2006
Tom has been bringing his stories of adventure, teamwork,
and inspiration to audiences around the country - and
around the world - for more than twenty years. As a NASA
astronaut, public speaking was part of his job description;
some of his best memories of that work are of talks beamed
to Earth from the space shuttle and International Space
Since his return to Earth, astronaut speaker Tom Jones has been telling audiences
human experience of space
flight, the determination needed to overcome obstacles on the way to orbit,
the rewards of good teamwork, determination, and
leadership, and humanity's destiny in
space. He looks forward to sharing his insights with
you. Explore the future together with astronaut speaker Tom Jones!
At the British Columbia Institute of Technology in April 2008, Tom discussed how the space shuttle
