Melynn Sight (Download Melynn’s Speaker Introduction)
What does Corporate America and Association marketing have in common? Well, a lot – and nothing at the same time!
Marketing technology products and services seems like a world away for Melynn, even though it was 25 years of her business life. It was clear that marketing and sales was her place. Marketing high tech products and services at Xerox and StorageTek all prepared her for her move to nSight Marketing.
Working with Association CEO’s and leaders was surely the best next step.
Melynn is passionate and focused on helping association leaders discover a common voice that conveys and persuades members why your association matters. Her work teaches association staff how to cut through the clutter that faces busy, distracted members.
It turns out communications touches every part of an association. Melynn’s company, nSight Marketing works with associations to get better at conveying value and relevance in today’s world!
When she’s not on the road, Melynn believes in giving back to her community as:
- A Rotarian
- A business coach for a College-level Business club called Enactus.
- A teacher for an anti-bullying program at a Kansas City charter school called Step Up Sisterhood.
Melynn lives with her husband in Kansas City.
