  • Seven-time Olympic Medalist Shannon Miller to Deliver Keynote Address at Meetings Quest in Atlantic City


    01/19/17

    Seven-time Olympic medalist Shannon Miller will provide the keynote address at Meetings Quest in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Hosted by Meet AC and presented by Association News, Meetings Quest is the nation’s longest-running series of educational and networking events for association, corporate, government and religious meeting planners and will be held March 14–15 at the Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa.

    Miller remains the most decorated Olympic gymnast in American history. She is the only American to rank among the top 10 all-time gymnasts and is the only female athlete to be inducted into the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame twice. She has won 59 international and 49 national competition medals, more than half of them gold. At Meetings Quest, Miller will discuss how the gold-medal mindset leads to victory, whether at the Olympic Games, in an exhibition hall or in a boardroom. Through her Olympic and personal experiences, Miller explains ways to overcome even the most difficult obstacles. She relied on these insights in her fight against ovarian cancer. The lessons she learned are designed to help meeting planners with their day-to-day challenges so that they can understand the steps it takes to be a successful leader in both work and life.

    “It is an honor to feature Shannon Miller at Meetings Quest in Atlantic City,” said Timothy Schneider, president and CEO of Schneider Publishing, which publishes Association News and organizes Meetings Quest. “Shannon’s incredible professional and personal achievements are sure to serve as an inspiration to attendees and guide them on their own path to success.”

    Miller’s accomplishments go beyond being a decorated athlete. After retiring from Olympic competition, Miller received her undergraduate degrees in marketing and entrepreneurship from the University of Houston and her law degree from Boston College. She launched her company, Shannon Miller Lifestyle: Health and Fitness for Women, which encourages women to make their health a priority through programs, education and awareness. Miller is also the author of “It’s Not About Perfect: Competing For My Country and Fighting For My Life.”
