Suggested Introduction for Kristin Arnold
Let me start off with a few questions:
- Have you ever been in a meeting that was a complete waste of time?
- Could you use some tips to reign in those that hijack the conversation?
- Are you ready for ideas that will make your teams rock?
If your answer is “yes,” you’ll be glad you’re here. If you didn’t … then you don’t work in a team!
Our speaker today has been facilitating executives and their teams around the world to think critically, make better decisions and achieve greater results for 30 years. She is also a leading authority on moderating panel discussions.
She is the past president of the US National Speakers Association and an award-winning author for her book, Boring to Bravo: Proven Presentation Techniques to Engage and Involve Your Audience to Action. She is the author of six other books and a contributing author to 28 other books on teamwork.
She has an MBA in Marketing Strategy and has worked with every one of the 18 identified sectors of the US economy and 147 different industries ranging from manufacturing and mining to financial services and the arts and everything in between. She has spoken to over 250 organizations in a dozen countries around the world such as the Million Dollar Roundtable, Mercedes Benz (USA and Canada), Lockheed Martin, Caterpillar, Johnson & Johnson, just to name a few. She has worked with over 16,000 leaders and 450 distinct teams delivering practical, real-world insights, tools, and techniques to help their teams to be extraordinary.
What you may not know is that she is one of the first female graduates of the United States Coast Guard Academy AND the first (and only) woman stationed onboard a US Coast Guard Cutter where she learned early on in her career about working well with others.
When not facilitating really important meetings, she plays a decent round of golf and is searching for the perfect olive to complement a vodka martini.
Helping us become thought leaders, please join me in welcoming, from Scottsdale Arizona, meeting facilitator, author, and former inter-collegiate badminton player, Kristin Arnold
