Owning the Power of Your Voice

This is a session about engaging your voice in a way that resonates; whether at the boardroom table, managing a crisis or demonstrating your undeniable presence every day. Like a good singer, we all have range. Learn to expand your range and use that range to not only be heard but command respect.

Nancy Osborne

Nancy Osborne CD, is an accomplished speaker and trainer who has presented to audiences from Afghanistan to New York. With a non-traditional career that spanned more than forty years, she often found herself as the only woman in some of the most misogynistic old boy's clubs, in some of the most dangerous places, around the world.

Her stories recounting her adventures are laced with humour while at the same time filled with motivational life lessons. She credits her successes to an “I got this” attitude, stepping into her power and trusting her instincts. Nancy doesn’t have a bucket list but believes that there is always another amazing adventure around the next corner. Through her stories she inspires others to make their voices resonate and their presence undeniable as they navigate life’s unpredictable paths.
