Speaker: Natalie Siston is a speaker, writer and certified professional coach. She believes everything she needed to know to succeed in her career she learned by growing up in Republic, Ohio (population 600). After leaving Republic, Natalie made The Ohio State University home and graduated at the top of both her undergraduate and MBA classes. She started her career in Silicon Valley where she not only created groundbreaking programs for students at Stanford University, but also served on non-profit and alumni boards of directors. After her time in Silicon Valley, Natalie returned home to Ohio where she quickly took on leadership positions within a Fortune 100 financial services company. At the same time, she started her own company, Small Town Leadership, as a way to honor her upbringing and share insights on leadership, networking and forming meaningful connections.

Natalie has been motivating and inspiring audiences of non-profit, higher education and Fortune 100 leaders since winning her first blue ribbon in public speaking in 4H when she was 8. She has written over 100 blog posts about growing up in Republic, Ohio and the associated leadership lessons.

Natalie’s work has appeared on Thrive Global and One Idea Away, which are communities helping people get clear and take action on their ideas.
