Natalie Siston is a coach, speaker and writer who specializes in networking, presentation and professional development. Through her experience in the non-profit, higher education and corporate sectors, she realized that everything she ever needed to know she learned by growing up in a town of 600 people. This inspired her to create smalltownleadership.com, a platform to share stories growing up in a small town and corresponding leadership lessons.
Natalie has extensive experience in relationship management and helps her clients focus on making the most of their personal and professional connections. She works with them to understand their network, explore what is holding them back from authentically connecting with others, and put a networking plan into action.
Natalie has her BA and MBA from The Ohio State University. She earned her Certified Professional Coaching designation from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC). At Nationwide, Natalie has held roles in corporate strategy, integrated marketing, and strategic partnerships. She has also led the 3,500 member All Women Associate Resource Group. Prior to her roles in corporate America, Natalie worked at the Stanford Alumni Association as a student and young alumni programs coordinator.
