Watching a pro work (4) - Kristin J. Arnold, CSP
Watch Kristin Arnold discuss using Inclusive Language (I, me, mine versus you, we, ours) and the Definition of a Facilitator. Kristin was the 2010-2011 president of the National Speakers Association. In 2010 I blogged about her most recent book, Boring to Bravo. You can download her ChangeThis manifesto on 15-1/2 Ideas to Make Your Presentation Go From Boring to Bravo.
She has both a general web site and one for Boring to Bravo. Kristin was one of the first women to graduate from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy (in 1982) and serve as an officer. You can watch a 9-minute promotional video about her as a High Stakes Meeting Facilitator. Another two-minute outdoor video on How to Personalize Your Presentation has great content, but illustrates that wind noise can become very intrusive. Hearing it through headphones reminded me of Wuthering Heights!
