Nancy Friedman Customer Service Keynote Speaker
  • "I have never seen anyone deliver so much valuable information in such a short period of time and present it with infectious enthusiasm, simple ideas superbly delivered.”
  • - Thom Gilday, President & COO BrightStar Care
  • "Nancy brought an alluring mixture of common sense, sharp wit, good humor and -- of course -- impeccable listening and communication skills to two of our system wide conferences (so far). So powerful were her presentations that the advice given is taking hold and taking effect at each one of our 300+ home health care agencies across the U.S. and Canada. Looking forward to continuing her role in shaping our Customer Experience."
  • - Steve Schildwachter Chief Marketing Officer. Brightstar Care
  • "Thank you so much for an amazing presentation this past weekend. We look forward to utilizing your online training for our office staff & make more meaningful connections with our clients.

  • - Meghan Pieniazek Brightstar Franchisee
  • "I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Nancy at the Brightstar Care Branch Leadership Conference. I was lucky enough to enjoy the company of Nancy and her husband Dick during lunch before her presentation. Her energy was uplifting and she was lovely, engaging and sincere. Despite this, I expected to be underwhelmed with yet another "overcoming objections" canned sales script type of presentation. I couldn't have been more wrong. Nancy was an outrageously entertaining, very funny firecracker of a presenter. That alone, made the session worthwhile. It didn't end there, though. Nancy's session was packed with useful "nuggets" that I plan on taking back to my staff and implementing immediately. Nancy is so much more than a telephone doctor or customer service guru. She is a master of soft skills and relationships, and she delivers her message in a way that leaves you excited and wanting more. If you are thinking of Nancy as a keynote speaker or corporate trainer, DO NOT HESITATE. She'll make you and your team look like champs "

Nancy Friedman Customer Service Keynote Speaker
  • "Your succinct presentation style, heartfelt genuineness, and endearing wit is so refreshing. It’s refreshing to encounter authentic people like yourself who have mastered an unabashed delivery of these elements, replete with your total immersion in our midst. Your kindred spirit and innate desire to empower others makes for a truly inspirational experience”
  • - Jerry Ryan, PAII Attendee
  • "We in the Bed & Breakfast / Innkeeping business can mistakenly minimize phone skills due to the prevalence of online booking. However, it's the person who takes the time to call that is often most interested in what the business has to offer. With a phone typically always within reach, Innkeepers can use The Telephone Doctor's tips to guide the conversation to 'close the deal' whether they're out in the garden, supermarket, or at their desk. Nancy's presentation was humorous with plenty of common sense (which isn't common enough) in the mix; our innkeepers and future innkeepers really enjoyed her session.”
