Say Yes, Show Up & Be Present!

In episode #28 “Say Yes, Show Up, and Be Present!” Gail McDonald and Susan Sneath welcome “Connector of People and Things Maximizer!” – Anne Nevel, into The Change Zone. She has got stories to tell! There are three themes running through our show:

1. How stories connect us.

2. How we change because of our stories and

3. How our quirkiness can come to serve the world!

Who’s Anne Nevel?

She’s kind, quirky, knows how to say no, and is also a shining example of saying yes, showing up, and being present. Anne authentically uses her many gifts and quirks to serve others in every way imaginable. The Change Zone is delighted to create community with Anne, one connection, one story, one change at a time.

“Your stories don’t define you. How you tell them will.” (Sarah Elkins). Anne Nevel has the stories to prove it!

Anne is so much more than a short bio and more complex than a business summary.

Whether working at her day job, volunteering with organizations she cares about, maintaining side ventures, or serving as a good friend or family member – she aims to create reliable, safe spaces for others to feel free to be themselves.

Anne has held a variety of positions in various industries. Over the last 16 years, in her role in the association space, she has overseen educational activities in several different industries, primarily within trades and healthcare (her favorite was the helicopter industry). Currently, she is the Vice President of Education for the Healthcare Distribution Alliance.

She is fired up by connections…connections of all types.

When she talks about people or projects, she sees connections. Her combination of strengths is what drives her desire to connect the right people to each other and to the right projects.

She leads with confidence in her instincts in terms of the best opportunities for individuals to truly shine in their own talents, for themselves, and for the greater good. The reason people feel good around her is that she truly SEES them and knows what they need to be successful. She then presents her vision of them with so much confidence and leadership they can’t help but believe her – this makes her good at getting people to do things they otherwise are unlikely to do. 😊

As her story continues to unfold, she looks forward to determining how she can best use her gifts and quirks to serve others.

The Change Zone
Susan Sneath and Gail McDonald had been facilitating in-person workshops for the same employment search service for organizations for close to 10 years prior to being locked down due to the pandemic. With workshops at a standstill, the obvious alternative was to go online. Gail proposed the idea to the coordinator of the employment search service and they jumped on board! The idea was a success with full ZOOM classes and the need for other facilitators to deliver virtual workshops was obvious. Susan’s hand shot up to volunteer for the challenge and once again we were in a training situation together, only this time it was for a virtual environment. Our ability to entertain while educating was obvious. The synergy was natural and it was obvious that Gail considered inviting Susan to join her in a podcast adventure Gail named “coaches unplugged.” Hours were spent on ZOOM, talking, joking, laughing, and recording. It was during that time that Bold Brave TV reached out to Gail on LinkedIn as a result of an audio interview and video Gail had recorded months earlier to ask if she’d like to have a talk show! After debating for a couple of days considering whether to respond or not, the decision was made to “do the research and discover how authentic this offer really was.” During the conversation with the marketing director, Gail indicated she had a partner and they were working on a podcast together and were a package deal. He said that was cool and the rest is history!! And as Paul Harvey said – And now you know the rest of the story! We said YES to what’s next – and here we are!!

SOLD OUT! JOIN OUR WAITING LIST! It's not a virtual event. It's not a conference. It's not a seminar, a meeting, or a symposium. It's not about attracting a big crowd. It's not about making a profit, but rather about making a real difference. LEARN MORE HERE
