"Nancy is an excellent presenter who has the gift of being able to present the message in a very relaxing, easy to understand form. Her concepts are clear, precise and are things you can put to use immediately."
Linda S. Thompson, Life Path Solutions, Inc., Gilbert, AZ

"Nancy conducted a staff workshop for us in the late summer of 2007. The workshop was interactive, drew people out of their comfort zones and into productive conversations; everyone commented afterward that the workshop contained information their would use. In fact, for months after the workshop - several staff embers would use a suggested technique - then stop, smile and say I learned that at our workshop. Nancy was professional, personable, and adept at dealing with the personalities of our staff in a very constructive manner."
C. Stage, Neighbors Who Care - a non-profit group serving the homebound elderly, Sun Lakes, AZ

"You have inspired me more than any other guest speaker who has come to our school!"
5th grader, Kyrene del Milenio Elementary School, Phoenix, AZ

"Nancy was hired by Mohave County Tobacco Use Prevention Program to conduct classroom presentations within the Kingman, Lake Havasu, and Bullhead City school districts. Her honest and humorous approach kept children engaged and gave them a strong sense of empowerment to better deal with peer pressure and risk issues. Her message compliments many in-school programs, but was delivered in a manner that was both unique and relevant. She has a great ability to connect with the students, which led to wonderful dialogues throughout her presentations. Nancy also conducted an in-house workshop for our employees and several talks to adults while visiting each city. The feedback from these presentations was very positive."
S. Williams, MCTUPP, Kingman, AZ

“'Words have no power, unless you give them power.'” These were the inspirational words of Nancy Nordstrom of Imagine Nation, as she spoke to our 5th grade students on empowerment and goal making last Spring. Nancy’s approach with our students was very direct, sincere, and meaningful. She told personal stories that the kids were able to connect with their own experiences. Her presentation is interactive and engaging which held the students attention. Nancy touched on three main ideas, including the power of words, the power of choice and the power of perception. She was able to make each idea come alive for the students which facilitated their understanding of the concepts. She left them with the idea that, 'Can’t isn’t a measure of ability, it’s a measure of desire.' Kyrene del Milenio would recommend Nancy Nordstrom to any school who wants to empower their students.

I realized my potentials and decided to make a resolution to work towards my goals."
