Shellye Archambeau: Platform Summit

Shellye Archambeau: Platform Summit


In this video, former Chief Executive Officer of MetricStream, Shellye Archambeau, speaks at the Platform Summit, opening with how one night she came home late to find her house flooded. When recounting the events of the previous night, it took Shellye 15 minutes to tell her sister what had happened, whereas it took Shellye's husband only 30 seconds to share what had happened with his brother. She explains how the communication styles of men and women differ, but this does not necessarily have to be a problem.


Archambeau has proven global business expertise combined with public policy passion. She shares her powerful personal story of overcoming the odds to achieve enormous success and provides audiences with the four-step framework she has used throughout her entire life to achieve happiness and prosperity in her personal and professional lives. She also shares the tactics she has used in business to get ahead of industry trends, uncover and dominate emerging markets, and to grow MetricStream from a company with razor-thin margins to an industry leader. Archambeau both inspires and motivates audience members, who are encouraged to take charge of their development and chase opportunity.
