Barb Lindquist’s inspirational journey from a Wyoming swimmer to an Olympian triathlete has provided her with compelling stories and lessons to share with diverse audiences. Barb speaks eloquently about navigating times of transition in her life, taking calculated risks, overcoming disappointments such as not making the 2000 Olympic Team, untying self-worth from performance through faith, and mentoring the next generation as both the USAT Collegiate Recruitment Program Manager and a dedicated mother.

“Barb's presentation is professional, personal and memorable. Her enthusiasm demonstrates her true love of life and her pride in being an athlete, a wife, a daughter, a mother, and a professional leader. Her natural likeability connects her to her audience. Her style is infused with laughter that is genuine and transparency that renders both trust and sincerity. As is true with any good speaker, the end of her talk leaves her listeners wanting more and wondering how the last 45 minutes just disappeared. .” - Julie, Montana Women's Run Coordinator

Barb possesses the keynote speaker professionalism perfect for corporate groups, yet her sincerity and openness allow her to connect with a high school youth group. Coupling her talk with a triathlon clinic or coach’s symposium over the course of a weekend is the perfect way to provide your group with a valuable weekend of learning, maximizing Barb’s passion for triathlon coaching and for sharing her life experiences.
