Speaker Nancy Sharp
Nancy holds a MFA in Creative Nonfiction from Goucher College and coaches many professionals on their own book projects. It’s this passion for the written and spoken word combined with her own impactful life story plus two decades in the communications industry and as a CEO speechwriter that distinguish Nancy from the crowd.
Nancy knows from her own experiences, and those of bold visionaries she admires, that: change is possible no matter the circumstances; boldness is a choice; and real success requires courage, resilience, and the ability to think and lead with wide perspective.
Nancy speaks on the theme of Bold Living in the areas of change, resilience, and personal and professional leadership. Some of her clients include The New York Life Insurance Company, Lincoln Financial, New York 92nd Street Y, Centura Health, University of Denver, American Academy of Psychotherapists, and the Dallas Bar Association.
Nancy blogs regularly for The Huffington Post and ESME.com and has also been published in The New York Times and many other national media.
Her first book, Both Sides Now: A True Story of Love, Loss, and Bold Living received eight literary honors including Books for a Better Life and the Colorado Book Award. Based on Nancy’s own story, Both Sides Now offers hard-won wisdom for anyone looking to rise strong after life hands you the unthinkable.
Her newest book, Because the Sky is Everywhere, helps children and families accept that even though someone close to them dies, the love they feel can be everlasting. Directly inspired by Nancy’s twins, Because the Sky is Everywhere is a valuable resource for educators, professionals, and groups who support grieving children and families.
