Behind the Scenes With Kikkan Randall
Kikkan Randall likes to motivate people. Whether it’s encouraging others to chase their dreams or to live a healthier lifestyle, she can share tips and tricks for breaking down big challenges into manageable steps.
Randall has always believed that she can be at her best when she helps those around her be at their best. During her ski career, the sport went from no US women’s ski team in 2006 to Olympic medal favorites in 2014 and 2018. Along the way, the team cultivated a supportive and cohesive environment that inspired not only the US Ski community, but what they did became a model for other World Cup teams.
It took Randall five Olympic Games and 18 Olympic starts to finally win that elusive first gold medal for the US Ski team in cross-country skiing. Over the course of 20 years, she experienced many setbacks, from a blood clot in 2008, to Olympic failure in 2014 to a stress fracture in her foot just months before the 2018 Games. The journey to success is a rollercoaster of ups and downs and it took perseverance to finally reach that top step of the Olympic podium.
"We brought Kikkan in to speak to all our employees (over 500 people) plus all of our most valuable clients, who are some of the top executives in America. Kikkan’s inspirational message and fantastic storytelling ability blew us all away and set just the right tone. To anyone looking for a dynamic keynote speaker who embodies courage, hard work, grit and resiliency, look no further — Kikkan is a standing ovation waiting to happen."
"I appreciated the guest speakers – especially Kikkan Randall – for their insight and motivation. Kikkan’s story is one I will never forget and the sheer gratitude she has for any and everything in life, especially when things don’t always go as planned, was truly an inspiration to reflect on."
