National Business Development Association (NBDA)
Generating new business is the lifeblood of any company. And it’s a skillset Christine is particularly passionate about. She founded NBDA after being regularly asked what resources existed to teach the best practices of business development. As a member of more than 15 boards over her career, Christine realized the value of sharing ideas and resources among other professionals. Christine assembled a board of like-minded executives and officially launched NBDA in 2012. This exclusive, trademarked network provides value found nowhere else. Still aligned with Christine’s passion and process for business development, NBDA provides tools, techniques and resources to grow members to their next level of achievement.
Vistage is the world’s leading business advisory and executive coaching organization. Membership is exclusively for CEOs, business owners and key executives. Members meet in small, moderated groups. Christine first attended Vistage as a speaker, to address meeting attendees on the subject of business growth and profitability. She immediately saw the potential benefit of sharing experiences with so many accomplished executives and became a member. With her natural coaching abilities, she was asked to become a Vistage Chair. In this role, she is tasked with ensuring that every bit of member experience and wisdom is shared in a Vistage meeting within a trusting environment where members can speak confidentially. As a Vistage Chair, Christine is part facilitator, part coach, and totally committed to the success of group members. She helps stimulate thinking, frame issues, guide discussions, limit tangents, and ensure accountability in the group. She fulfills her role with the express purpose of helping others build great (or greater) businesses. She currently leads five Houston Vistage groups, and she speaks across the country for Vistage International. Vistage remains one of the most rewarding things Christine does.
