Nancy is a highly respected and much sought-after speaker at franchise, corporation, association meetings and conferences and was voted Favorite Speaker in a national poll for Meetings & Conventions Magazine. She also received the coveted Entrepreneur Hall of Fame Award from St. Louis Small Business Monthly. Friedman helps companies capture, navigate and convert a call, web or store visit to a positive experience and a sale.

Friedman is the author of nine books relating to improving customer service, communication skills and sales and has appeared on The Today Show, Oprah, CNN, CBS This Morning and Fox News for her expertise in improving customer relations.

Customer service not only impacts sales and return business, but can ruin a company’s image.

What do you love most about Your City?  

St Louis Missouri. (Though born and raised in Chicago Ill.)   I’m not too familiar with the ‘city of’ St Louis, as we live in the suburbs and seldom venture out to the city.  We do know it has a lot to offer and I also know St louis gets poorly maligned sometimes.   It’s a great city.  Though I’m a CUB Fan, it’s nice to have the CARDs here.!

Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?   

Jenny’s on Olive.  Small, intimate, not too loud.  Good Service. Usually Scrambled Egg whites/w/onions/cheese.    Their Liver for lunch is great.
