Select Testimonials

“We hired Clay Anderson to speak to a group of 200 BP new hire employees. Clay presented material from his career at NASA, addressing the value of personal and institutional courage and effectively relating the technical challenges faced by NASA and BP. He is articulate, enthusiastic, and thoroughly entertaining. He tailors his message to his audience and answers questions from that audience with a smile, good humor, and a touch of irreverence. Clay has been a pleasure to work with, and I would recommend his service to any organization.”

Aubrey Collie, BP Challenge Summit Co-Lead

“I think the standing ovation served as the best testimony!”

Mary Ellen Brenner, Missouri Association of Counties

Clayton Anderson is as American as mom, baseball and apple pie. He is an outstanding motivational speaker especially to a younger audience. He comes from small town Nebraska and achieved his lifelong dream of becoming Nebraska's first astronaut. His message is that you can do whatever you put your mind to as long as you work hard and never give up. I have seen him keep an entire school spellbound by his remarks as well as bring tears to the eyes of 500 adults after a keynote address. Clayton has strong family values, an incredible work ethic and despite his success in space has his feet firmly planted on the ground.”
