Visit Bentonville’s President and CEO, Kalene Griffith, shares her secrets to “Solving for Yes” with Adam Stoker on the Destination Marketing Podcast. Listen to hear what it’s like to be the hometown of Walmart, how to get your community to buy into your destination organization, and why it’s important to say yes and make things happen for your stakeholders.


"We’re gonna say yes to what you need. There might be a 'yes, but' or a 'yes, and' or you may have to compromise a little bit on your vision because we can’t cater to everything. But in my view, whatever you come to us about, if we have the amenities and facilities, we’re gonna say yes to you. That is our goal." - Kalene Griffith
