Nancy Scannell, October 2019

Nancy Scannell is a Professional Member of the National Speakers Association and is affiliated with the Illinois and Wisconsin Chapters.

Contact Nancy at nancy.scannell@gmail.com for information about how she can help inspire and motivate members of your organization. Among other topics, Nancy provides valuable insight into Positive Leadership, Women in Leadership, Faith and Resilience, and the Power of Presence and Self-Awareness to Create Positive Change.

She has also facilitated workshops on developing personal and professional mission, vision, value and goal statements.  She recently delivered the keynote address “Pausing to Lead: Show up in Each Moment” at the Indiana ACE Conference for Women in Higher Education. Her TEDx talk entitled “The Power of the Pause” can be found on Ted.com.


Nancy draws on her own life experiences to engage her audience with a genuine humility and contagious energy.  Being the ninth of ten children frames her unique perspective on chaos and serves as the foundation for her ability to communicate the true power of pause. She connects with an approachable enthusiasm and authentic kindness.  In listening to Nancy, you will learn to listen to yourself.  Only then can you embrace your full capacity to grow and, as Nancy says, “show up in the world.”
