Foundation CEO Inspires Future Leaders

Foundation CEO Inspires Future Leaders On Oct. 21, Space Foundation President and Chief Executive Officer Elliot Pulham was the keynote speaker in Honolulu, Hawaii, at the National American Pacific Islander Leadership Institute (NAPALI). Each year NAPALI brings together a hand-picked group of young engineers, teachers, and executives of Pacific Island heritage for leadership training and mentoring. Pulham delivered remarks drawn from his space career to help inspire this select group of young American leaders from Hawaii, Samoa, and Guam. A native of Ka'u, Hawaii, Pulham recounted his journey from small town Hawaii to space industry leadership, and the significant lessons of education, mentorship, leadership, and life-long learning that are crucial to servant leadership.
