“As a Director Consultant at BNI, an international business networking group, I see hundreds of presentations every year by our members. Last Fall, as part of ADHD awareness month, Nathalie did one of the best and most effective presentations I have ever seen. In only 10 minutes, she was able to convey the number of people who are affected by this condition, the impact it can have on their life, the signs to look for that may indicate someone has ADHD and how, as a Professional Organizer and Coach who specializes in working with creative people, she can help them.
Clear, to the point; simply and eloquently said.”
- Arthur Benilous, Area Director

INTERNATIONAL ADHD CONFERENCE 2018 - Professionals' Day
Nathalie was one of the first presenters at the Professionals Day of the 2018 International ADHD Conference in Saint-Louis, Missouri. The topic was: "Should I Keep or Let it Go: How to Declutter When Drowning in Stuff". She offered some insight to fellow Coaches, Professional Organizers & Therapists on the impact that clutter can have on one's state of mind, the related health issues and how it can affect family dynamics when someone has ADHD. Audience participants learned some ADHD-friendly strategies on how they can help their clients let go of their excessive possessions.
"...Presentation was well-organized. Leaving with info I can implement immediately."
- Anonymous, Conference Participant
INTERNATIONAL ADHD CONFERENCE 2018 - General Conference
Nathalie closed the first day of the General Public Conference Day at the International ADHD Conference in Saint-Louis, Missouri. After realizing how many her clients struggled with meal preparation, she developed this conference topic that would seem a no brainer for the neuro-typical population. Through her talk on: "What's Cooking? How to Organize Your Food From Dawn to Dusk", Nathalie walked the audience through the various steps involved in getting dinner on the table in a timely and healthy fashion. Her strategies offer relief to the ADHD community that otherwise is challenged by their glitchy Executive Functions for a seemingly simple task.
"As another ADHD Coach/Organizer, I've given many presentations on this topic and just want to say I thought yours was exceptionally well done -- and you are a great presenter!
The topic of meal planning DOES have to start with kitchen organizing and you nailed it. One woman sitting near me kept saying "this is life changing...this is life changing." And there's no better feedback than that for us, is there?
- Lynne Johnson, Professional Organizer

Fabulous comment to come.

Nathalie has been an amazing source of support and resources to me and my ADHD group. She goes out of her way to help people with any concern that they may have. Nathalie was one on the speakers at one of my meetings on ADHD and organizing your life! She was amazing! I cannot recommend her enough!"

"Today, I attended a conference Nathalie Pedicelli was giving to a women's business luncheon. As a public speaker, she was eloquent and very generous. I loved the fact that it was structured and yet speaking from the heart. Bravo Nathalie for speaking about this condition (ADHD) that is still, to this day, not well understood.”
- Danièle Soaré, Financial Coach
