We are inviting the legendary Gene Kranz next September in Switzerland, for two private events. We are considering a public lecture at Zürich-Airport on Sept. 2 in the evening. Any interest?

Thank you for your feedback for this exclusive opportunity.

Yep, interested in the public event. I could combine it with a vacation. It would be even better if he could be persuaded to sign an autograph.

I was sent the following message regarding Gene Kranz's visit to Switzerland.
We deeply regret to have to inform you about the fact that Eugene Francis "Gene" Kranz had suffered from a severe health problem which made him unfit for travelling. Thanks to medical intervention he is again in "normal" condition, but he now has to undergo therapy and adaptation of his medication, under medical supervision.

Gene Kranz himself proposed the following solution which we are happy to accept, too: astronaut Charlie Duke, Apollo 16, is going to take over his duties and in particular his lecture on September 3.

Get well soon Gene! Failure to do so is NOT an option!

Thank you for posting our updates. Yes, we are very sad but the health of our legend Gene Kranz has the top priority!

Gene is coming later in Switzerland because; Failure is not an Option.

I have bought last week a ticket in the internet-shop for this lecture. The ticket will be sent via letter to me. Hope it arrives in time. I am missing the correct address of the location, where the lecture takes place. Please be so kind and sent me an email of the Location in Zürich.

It was an awesome and authentic Charlie Duke.

I had the pleasure to be part of a Seminar for Teamwork and Leadership at the University of Applied Science in Business in Zürich. The duration was more than 4 hours. Charlie Duke presented a deep introduction to Teamwork and Leadership during his NASA time. Geri Boller presented before a lecture how the Apollo Mission worked. In a final discussion Charlie Duke showed his aspects to the presented results, worked out in the different groups.

Thank you to the organizer and all the involved persons for this overwhelming and instructive event.
