Engage Others & Get What You Need

A hallmark of Nancy Dunleavy's philosophy is the importance of connecting. Connecting is both personal and professional. Finding commonalities and way that relationships can be more than just transactional, but opportunities to grow and deepen our value to others. More than "networking", connecting offers a platform to become more invested in the needs and solutions placed on the table and encourages collaboration.

For many years, Nancy has been a coveted public speaker sharing her creative approach to identifying personal strengths, tips for building relationships and being and engaging leader in your field by asking for what you need. Heard nationally and locally at conferences and webinars, she weaves a love of connecting with personal experience and lessons learned in an interactive presentation that is both engaging and inspiring. Nancy is currently accepting inquiries for speaking engagements. Contact Patty Cook for more information.

Taking her experience to another level, Nancy recently captured the highlights of her presentations and published 'Exercise Your Ask Muscle: The no-weight workout with proven results'. In the book, she contends that working out can be fun - it just depends on what muscle you’re working and how you’re working it!

You will find that the success you’ve been dreaming of is just around the corner. And it’s not nearly as hard as you may have imagined.
