I'm Nell. I build actionable inspiration with high-performing individuals and their organizations. 


What I Do

I speak at conferences, top universities, and private events to share my work as the founder + CEO of Inspiring Capital: guiding people to do meaningful work that aligns with their skills. I'm a contributor at Forbes, writing about the increasingly common challenge of job transitions, to get to that meaningful work. We are all most engaged, satisfied, and productive in that state of actionable inspiration. I will help you and your organization get there, to perform at your best.

Nell tells it like it is, eloquently and diplomatically. She inspires and motivates collectively.
