ABOUT DEIRDRE VAN NEST

Hi there!  I’m Deirdre. I don’t believe in boring you with a laundry list of credentials. That being said, if you’re reading this section of our website, it’s likely because you want to know more about me. So here goes:

I am the go-to expert for financial professionals and thought leaders on how to Make An Impact when you express yourself.

I am a top-rated, International Keynoter, Trainer, Story Artist, and the Creator of the Crazy Good Talks® Blueprint and the Emotionally Engaging Advisor™; two practical communication systems that have taught thousands how to capture attention, connect emotionally, and Make An Impact.

I am passionate about this work and feel blessed every day to help my clients succeed.

On a personal note, I’m an Italian, Irish, New Yorker living in Minnesota, where I try hard not to scare people with my loud voice and enthusiastic hand gestures.

I love boating, travel, wellness, reading, bible study, personal development, getting involved in causes I am passionate about, and hanging out with my family and friends. 

I enjoy collaborating with talented people, so to best serve you, we team up strategic partners on certain projects. I also have an amazing core team, one who helps bring my vision to life. I’d love to introduce you to them below.  

Thanks for stopping by and if you’re interested in Making An Impact, please click below to start a conversation.

My background is in Project Management, Organizational Development, and Business Planning. I attended Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, and have multiple certifications in Project Management, including one from Cornell University. 

I love the work we do at Crazy Good Talks, because I believe  everyone has a message and a story that needs to be heard!
