“Nancy was the ideal emcee. In her role as co-host of the Great Big Gig with Ian McKinnon, she exuded professionalism, warmth, and even a bit of humour when appropriate. Whether she was encouraging the crowd to bid up the silent auction items or introducing a guest – her natural skill and poise on stage shone through. From a planning perspective, she was readily available to meet with us offering welcome advice and guidance. All in all, she’s a pro.”
Chair, The Great Big Gig
“Nancy Regan is one of the most natural public speakers I have ever seen. She is supremely comfortable in front of the crowd, but more importantly in the crowd. A natural “people person” her grace, personality and sense of humour shine through regardless of the nature of the event. Nancy also has a keen sense of what works and what doesn’t and is able to use this to her advantage both to work the crowd and very professinally represent the organization on whose behalf she is working. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her as one the best in the business.”

“Our first annual PwC Women In Leadership event held September 29th was well received and exceeded our expectations. Nancy Regan hosted the event and facilitated a panel discussion of various women in leadership. Our panelists were Kim Mason, Regional President, Atlantic Provinces of RBC Royal Bank, Adrienne Powers, Canadian Olympic Athlete and Monica Banting, PwC, Senior Manager of Women In Leadership. Nancy was able to tap into the personalities of our panelists and engage in personal and frank conversations of challenges and successes in their professional and personal lives. She also incorporated some of her own experiences on the topic which helped to facilitate the panel discussion. She took the time to research the panelists beforehand so she could be knowledgeable on their backgrounds and thus ask pertinent questions. She did a fantastic job of creating the informal atmosphere we were aiming for and in allowing everyone to feel comfortable in asking questions. She was able to deal very well with the impromptu nature of a panel discussion and appropriately transition one topic to another in a natural way. Nancy took the time to meet with us beforehand to understand our goals for the event and made several suggestions that the committee appreciated. You could tell she really cared about the event and the topic which made for a great success. We would love to have Nancy back every year to host our event.”

“I’ve had the pleasure to work with Nancy Regan on a number of live events in the years since 2011. Nancy is a natural on the stage and in front of the camera. She is exuberant and fast on her feet, and her infectious enthusiasm makes her invaluable as an MC.
Equally impressive and critical to the success of the various projects that we have collaborated on has been Nancy’s ability to contribute to the planning and production process: whether its the minutia of run sheets or comic timing in the script, Nancy has the ability to keep track of the details without losing sight of the big picture. She has never been anything less than generous with her time and talents.
Highly recommended !”

Nancy continues to keep her material fresh and relevant and never fails to inspire a boost of confidence within our students. Her presentation is always well prepared, her delivery is from the heart and entertaining, and her material is meaningful and uplifting. The impact from her sessions run deep for our students who regularly quote a variety of lessons Nancy shares many years later. We’re confident any group would benefit from time spent with Nancy Regan.”
