Genius Within provides support with disability adjustment and legal compliance, recruitment, performance management and talent programs. She advises NGOs, international and national civil servants and political groups on how to improve disability inclusion. In 2019 she was recognised by the British Psychological Society with an award for her contribution to Policy Impact in Occupational Psychology.
Nancy pioneered the work on Positive Assessment which featured in both series of the award-winning BBC Two series Employable Me. As co-creator and presenter of the series, she supported a group of extraordinary job seekers to unlock their own unique talents and abilities in order to secure employment. Syndicated in 2019 in the USA as The Employables, she continued to deliver the trademark assessments and Employable Genius group coaching with some extraordinary individuals as they searched for work. The show has been incredibly successful demonstrating neurodiversity as a strength and not as a barrier to employment.
