THE ENGAGEMENT SPECIALIST
The success of the day depends on the speaker you choose ... the ability to relate to your audience, to engage, to educate, to entertain, and to inspire.
MEET CLINT SWINDALL
Clint Swindall is the seasoned speaking professional you need --- engaging, entertaining, and absolutely unforgettable. He understands the power of engagement. He understands the critical roles both leaders and employees play in building a culture of engagement, and how a focused effort for both can dramatically improve an organization.
Organizations across the nation have been using his ideas to enhance the way people lead themselves and those around them. As the president and CEO of Verbalocity, Inc., a personal development company with a focus on leadership enhancement, Clint has delivered his programs throughout the United States, Canada, South America, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Bermuda, and the Bahamas. For the past two decades, he has delivered high-content keynote presentations in an entertaining and inspirational style to Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, and trade associations.
Clint enjoys the challenge of enhancing employee engagement for his clients by delivering programs based on his book entitled Engaged Leadership: Building a Culture to Overcome Employee Disengagement (John Wiley & Sons). He recognizes that a culture of employee engagement is a two-way road, and that true engagement comes when leaders and employees are both doing their part. In addition to working with leaders to build a culture to overcome employee disengagement, he addresses the employee’s role in his follow-up book entitled Living for the Weekday: What Every Employee and Boss Needs to Know about Enjoying Work and Life (John Wiley & Sons).
He is a seasoned professional speaker you can depend on to educate, entertain, and engage. He is the recipient of the Certified Speaking Professional designation, the speaking profession’s international measure of professional platform competence. Just over 10% of speakers worldwide who are a part of the Global Speakers Federation hold this designation.
Clint does more than just talk about leadership. His leadership roles in the community include serving on the Executive Committee of the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, as well as the board of directors for GVTC, the largest telephone cooperative in the state of Texas. He is founder and chairman of the First Chance Foundation, a 501(c)3 dedicated to assisting abandoned, abused, and neglected children. He is a past board member of the Texas State University Alumni Association, Junior Achievement of South Texas, and Provisions Food Pantry.
He and his wife Heather of 15 years reside just north of San Antonio in Bulverde, Texas…the front door to the Texas Hill Country. When he’s not working to enhance the leadership skills of his clients, he can be found pursuing his hobby of competition BBQ!
Verbalocity founder Clint Swindall shares his inspiring and educational message of employee engagement as a keynote speaker to corporate conferences and trade association conventions across the country. As a seasoned professional speaker, Clint has been recognized as a Certified Speaking Professional by the National Speakers Association and the Global Speakers Federation.
Clint Swindall is prepared to help you build a culture of employee engagement beyond the platform of a keynote presentation. In order to determine a benchmark for leadership development within your organization, we administer our own online Employee Engagement Survey (EES) that measures against the Engaged Leadership model, the foundation of the leadership development offered by Verbalocity.
Clint has developed front-line managers, CEOs, and levels in between through leadership coaching. While awareness is often gained in a keynote presentation and development is gained in training, true accountability is gained in leadership coaching. To ensure steps are being taken to improve based on feedback from a 360° assessment, we schedule monthly leadership coaching sessions with leadership development participants.
A critical aspect of ongoing leadership development beyond a keynote presentation or leadership training is specific feedback from a 360° assessment. We take advantage of the decades of research of The Leadership Circle, and the certification given through CCE (approved by the International Coach Federation). Clint is certified to administer the Leadership Circle Profile, Manager Edition, Leadership Culture Survey, and Follow-Thru Tool in conjunction with our leadership development initiatives.
We offer customized leadership training based on the leadership platform, Engaged Leadership. While often delivered as a stand-alone event, it also is part of Verbalocity’s leadership development program, Engage! To supplement classroom time, we offer webinars and tele-seminars when appropriate to build on an existing leadership development program. We recognize that face-to-face meetings are not always practical for reinforcement, and encourage clients to find ways to utilize our webinar and tele-seminar offerings as reinforcement.
Clint is the author of two books on employee engagement --- both published by John Wiley & Sons. He shares the leader’s responsibility in his first book, Engaged Leadership: Building a Culture to Overcome Employee Disengagement. He shares the employee’s contribution in his second book, Living for the Weekday: What Every Employee and Boss Needs to Know about Enjoying Work and Life. Each book offers an applicable business fable, coupled with step-by-step blueprints to show successful methods for building a culture of engagement.
