Deirdre Van Nest is a speaker and coach for Fortune 500 companies and small business clients.  But there are plenty of speakers and coaches in the world.  What makes her different?  As the only person in America triple-certified as a:

  • World Class Speaking Coach ™

  • Fearless Living Coach ™

  • Get Clients Now!™ Facilitator

She can help grow your business 3 ways:

1. Teach you how to write and deliver presentations that motivate your audience to take action.

2. Move you past the fear and excuses that hold you back in your business.

3. Get you into focused action so you get more clients.

On top of that, Deirdre has lived your life.

Her entire speaking and coaching practice was born out of her frustration in starting a business in 1999 and not being able to accomplish what she wanted — because fear kept getting in the way.

Deirdre is not an academic in an ivory tower – she has lived, breathed, and proven every single tactic she teaches and speaks about.

As a result, speaking audiences connect with her authenticity and interactive style.

Coaching clients appreciate her compassion, willingness to hold them accountable, intuitiveness, and commitment to helping them thrive.

Deirdre is the only speaker and coach in America to combine these 3 certifications. That means she can move fluidly between 3 powerful skill sets, to help you achieve more:

  • As a Certified Fearless Living Coach™, she helps you uncover the worry, self-doubt, and excuses that hold you back. Anyone can hang out a shingle and call themselves a coach. But, Deirdre completed two years of highly specialized training though the Fearless Living Institute in Denver, Colorado.

  •  As a Get Clients Now!™ Facilitator, she helps you develop and execute a strategic action plan that brings in new business. Deirdre trained with marketing master and best-selling author C.J. Hayden.

  •  As a Certified World Class Speaking Coach™, she teaches you how to grow your business through public speaking. You will learn how to create and deliver presentations that will captivate and motivate your audience to take action. Deirdre trained with Professional Speaker and Author, Craig Valentine. Craig holds the 1999 World Championship title for Public Speaking.

Deirdre received her Bachelor’s degree in Communication from Boston College and Master’s in Occupational Therapy from Nova Southeastern University

A native New Yorker, she lives in the Minneapolis area with her husband, two children and dog. She enjoys spending time with friends and family, exercising, reading, learning, theater, and travel.

She is a member of the National Speakers Association, was a former president of the All About Business chapter of Business Network International (BNI), and currently holds ministry positions in her church.
