Peace is the Only Gold - Applying Olympian Thinking to Peace in Our Lifetime

Broadcast on August 14, 2012
With Marilyn King

Marilyn King

Former Olympian, Corporate Consultant, Peace Activist

Marilyn King is a two-time Olympian in the grueling five event Pentathlon. Her 20-year athletic career includes five national titles and a World Record. An automobile accident in 1979 rendered her unable to train physically for her third Olympic Team. Using only mental training techniques for seven months, she placed second at the Olympic trials for the 1980 Moscow Games.  This extraordinary experience led to a 30-year career as an expert in the field of exceptional human performance. Her work is a powerful example of applying skills learned through sports to business leadership, education and peace.

Marilyn’s participation in an international, five- year think tank on the role of business in the 21 Century led to a career that includes conducting programs for senior executives with global responsibilities at Fortune 500 companies. Her corporate clients include: AT&T, Apple Computer, Hewlett Packard, IBM, Ikea, Microsoft, Nokia, Oracle, Starbucks, The Federal Reserve Bank and Wells Fargo. Marilyn has presented at over 200 national and international education conferences with academicians and researchers who are designing the schools of the future. Her most pioneering work, a joint Russian-American venture called “The Peace Team” prompted two invitations to speak at the United Nations.
