Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I spent over 20 years in the corporate space working in marketing and communications leadership positions. I've seen great soft skills (interpersonal skills) in action and not-so-great soft skills in the workplace. Now, I use my experience, knowledge and skills to help others become more confident and successful in both their professional and personal lives. I believe passionately in developing people, especially their interpersonal skills. “You can achieve your goals – you just need a clear vision and a strong belief in yourself. Soft skills are learned and the more we practice, the better we get. I also love creating compelling marketing materials that help generate business, create more awareness of the business and raise the stature of the business.

Motivational Speaking

Our organization contracted Polished for our annual national sales kickoff meeting in January 2016. Nancy is a joy to partner with through the entire end to end process; the content planning, the tactical and logistical coordination, and the execution and delivery of the training program. Nancy is highly engaged and responsive throughout the entire process, and is truly committed to impacting the organization through her training and development programs. Nancy is very receptive to creativity, input and suggestions, and provides exceptional thought leadership while determining the right program to suite each organizations needs.I highly recommend Nancy for her professionalism, expertise and above and beyond commitment to mutual excellence.

Motivational Speaking

Nancy was a pleasure to work with. We communicated through email and phone to set up a speaking engagement that went wonderful. She is very attentive and follow up was appreciated. Her knowledge of the healthcare industry and simple, yet important business tactics, was a hit with our orgazation members.

So impressed with Nancy's leadership, and her ability to personalize a coaching session with my 20 year old son. Her strong interest and eagerness to help people grow their network is so very valuable. I immediately felt comfortable with her. She is the one to call if you want to be competitive, or if you want that extra edge!

Motivational Speaking

Nancy was a pleasure to work with! She was very quick to respond to all communication and was extremely courteous in all of our conversations. She provided a wonderful presentation to the young men attending the Alpha Delta Gamma national convention in St. Louis and they all gave raving reviews of her. All of the information provided was done so in an entertaining way mixed with humor, real life examples, and demonstrations. I would recommend Nancy and Polished to any company or organization!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing varies depending on the length of the workshop. I try as much as possible to work with a organization's or individual's budget.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I ensure my presentation or motivational speech is right on target with what the client wants and expects. I take time to understand their needs by asking questions, offering suggestions and sharing successful topics to past audiences. When customers are unsure of what they need, I provide lots of examples of relevant topics.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I attend educational conferences and take ongoing training courses to keep up to date with the latest trends. I'm also a member of several professional organizations.
