Interviews with the Leaders of NewSpace and the Space Frontier Foundation’s NewSpace 2017 Communications Chair

Newspace People Kicks off Its Leaders of NewSpace Interview Series in September

In the fall, NewSpace People will begin to share our interviews with the top decision makers in NewSpace. Gain insights into what has shaped their character and learn how they approach their leadership roles to ensure success.

Interview with NewSpace 2017’s Communications Chair

Sponsored by the movers and shakers of the moment, including Brand Delta-V, Luxembourg Ministry of the Economy, and Moon Express, the leading global NewSpace conference is back with NewSpace 2017, and it’s got its finger on the pulse of the major discussions happening right now in NewSpace.

Each year the conference’s keynotes update us on the behind-the-scenes high-end discussions shaping the industry, and we asked Ricki Watkins to tell us what’s the buzz this year.

A couple of our questions to Ricki are below, to give you a flavour of the interview:

1. Every year the NewSpace conference seems to have the right people talking about the right things at the right time. What do you expect to be hot topics at this year’s conference?

2. The conference has given many NewSpace companies a great platform to spread the word of their activities, early on, and a great many of them have gone on to be highly successful. What do you look for when inviting companies that are still early on in their development to speak at the conference? How do you screen and select your panels each year?
