   Captain Mark Kelly 

From leading teams in some of the most dynamic environments imaginable, to the thrill of spaceflight, to the personal tragedy that exposed how love and devotion to family is paramount to defining and achieving success, Kelly offers insights drawn from his various and extensive experiences that are truly out of this world. 

 John Quiñones                                        

 A lifetime of "never taking no for an answer" took Quiñones  from migrant farm work and poverty to more than 30 years  at ABC News and the anchor desk at 20/20 and Primetime.  Along the way, he broke through barriers, won the highest  accolades, and became a role model for many.                 As host and  creator of What Would You Do?, the highly-  rated, hidden  camera ethical dilemma newsmagazine,  Quiñones has  literally become "the face of doing the right  thing" to millions of fans.
