The author of the best-selling book, Second-Act Careers: 50+ Ways to Profit From Your Passions During Semi-Retirement,  the career columnist for NextAvenue.org/(PBS) and Forbes.com and one of the country’s foremost experts on boomers and careers, Nancy is  an engaging, entertaining and inspiring presenter.

With nearly two decades of hands-on experience in the careers world, Nancy is able to speak on a wide variety of topics related to career reinvention, flexible work and second-act careers.

Nancy is available for keynotes, workshops and seminars – all talks are customized to meet the specific needs of your audience. She is based in Old Greenwich, CT and is able to travel for speaking engagements around the country.

“I met Nancy at a conference and was immediately struck at her knowledge of career transitions and knew I had to get her savvy expertise in front of my seasoned alumni. Nancy presented an incredibly valuable webinar for the alumni community, who often asks for resources to combat ageism and other challenges that prevent them from finding employment after age 50. 362 people signed up for her presentation, and I heard nothing but positive feedback on the tactical advice presented in her hour-long webinar.

I was relieved to finally feel like we had put something in front of this population that could actually be of use to them, as so many coaches don’t have real solutions. I hope we can host here again!” – Sarah Hay, Director Alumni Career Services, Emory University

She’s not only a lively, engaging speaker with deeply relatable stories, but her clearheaded career tips get to the core of what so many of us are in need of exploring–and can now dare.” – Laura Blum, Program Director JCC Greenwich
