Biography

Bertrand Piccard is the initiator and visionary behind Solar Impulse, the very first airplane capable of flying
perpetually without fuel. It is in his DNA to go beyond the obvious and achieve the impossible. As part of a
legendary dynasty of explorers and scientists who conquered the heights and depths of our planet, he made
history by accomplishing two firsts in aviation, circumnavigating the globe in a solar-powered airplane and
before that non stop in a balloon. The ocean depths and the stratosphere attracted his father and grandfather;
the challenges of our time fascinate him. With his dual identities as medical doctor and explorer, Bertrand has
become an influential voice as a forward thinking leader for progress and sustainability and a renowned
inspirational speaker. Following his pioneering spirit in favor of the cause of renewable energies and clean
technologies, he has now set off to select and label 1000 solutions that protect the environment in a profitable
way and will then embark on a third round-the-world journey to deliver those solutions to decision-makers,
encouraging them to adopt more ambitious environmental targets and energy policies.

Large companies wishing to generate customer loyalty or motivate their managers and employees find much of interest in his vision, career, and family history combining science with human values.

Two faces of reality, depending on what we learn from them.
