kstrin-arnold-2015-presidents-awardKristin Arnold, CSP

President Lenora Billings-Harris recognized the contributions  to GSF’s success made by Kristin Arnold. As an expert in facilitating high-stakes strategy sessions, Kristin guided our first multi-day face-to-face strategic planning session for the executive committee. Because of her efforts, we were able to develop the first structured strategic plan for GSF. Her efforts helped us capture the many facets of GSF and set priorities. The resulting document was used by GSF presidents in subsequent years and it helped provide context to the reorganization that occurred in the following years. 

Additionally, Kristin has maintained an interest in the Global Speakers Summit as the keystone event of GSS. Her suggestions and willingness to volunteer helped GSF leaders as they revamped the event.
