Aerospace Visionary Burt Rutan To Appear At Ohio Community College Event

Designer/entrepreneur of Voyager, first plane to fly around the world without stopping to refuel, and SpaceShipOne, world's first privately funded spacecraft, to share insights on innovation

WARRENSVILLE HEIGHTS, Ohio, Sept. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Burt Rutan, one of the world's leading aerospace engineers and innovators, will appear at Cuyahoga Community College's Corporate College East on Tuesday, October 11. Rutan is the design genius behind Voyager, the first aircraft to fly around the world without stopping to refuel, and SpaceShipOne, the world's first privately funded spacecraft. He has been granted the Presidential Citizen's Medal and the Lindbergh Award for his pioneering aerospace efforts. His appearance is the highlight of a daylong conference titled "Innovation: A Strategic Imperative."

Described by Newsweek as "the man responsible for more innovations in modern aviation than any living engineer," Rutan made international headlines in 1984 when his Voyager aircraft flew 26,366 statue miles in just over 9 days and circled the world without stopping. Then in 2004 he garnered headlines as the designer of SpaceShipOne, the world's first privately funded spacecraft.

The Innovation conference is being hosted by the Northeast Ohio Human Resource Planning Society (NOHRPS) and Corporate College, a division of Cuyahoga Community College. Rutan will discuss the role of leadership in creating, sustaining and imbedding innovation in the culture of an organization. He will also share his predictions on how his successful first steps in private venture spaceflight will lead to affordable space access for the public.

Also appearing at the daylong conference will be Dr. Nancy Tennant Snyder, Corporate Vice President, Strategic Competency Creation and Leadership Development at the Whirlpool Corporation. She is the co-author of Strategic Innovation: Embedding Innovation as a Core Competency in Your Organization and will speak along with Abbe Luersman, Whirlpool's Vice President - Total Rewards & HR Solutions.

For the afternoon session, attendees will have the opportunity to attend two of several workshops focusing on creating a culture of innovation within an organization. A networking reception will follow.

The fee to attend "Innovation: A Strategic Imperative" is $245 and includes continental breakfast, lunch, the workshops and networking reception.
