“Each year NBTY invites our top leaders from around the world to come together in a special forum to share ideas, track our path, define our future goals and generally energize the organization to be the very best global wellness company we can be. We were pleased and honored to have Michelle Stacy join us as a special keynote speaker to kick off this year’s NBTY Leadership Conference. Our 2014 event focused on the topics of leadership and unlocking the power of true teamwork, two subjects that Michelle was able to personally speak to as a respected and accomplished leader in the consumer marketing space.

Michelle’s presentation followed the opening remarks of our CEO setting the stage for the topics that would follow during the two day conference. Her presentation was not only engaging but truly inspiring and thought provoking. Michelle provided our leaders with valuable insights that allowed us to take another look at our roles and skills as leaders while providing real world advice on how we can energize and activate our leadership at every level. Using some very simple visual cues, she challenged the audience to look at day-to-day situations from different angles allowing us to better understand the viewpoints of our peers and overcome some of the most common obstacles to effective teamwork.

Our post meeting survey confirmed that Michelle’s content, presentation style, personal experience and insights truly resonated with everyone in the audience surpassing our goals and expectations for the conference.

Once again we were pleased and honored to have her join this year’s NBTY Leadership Conference.”
Chief Marketing Officer, NBTY
