Public Speaker, ceo, and comics in Rye, New York
Nancy Silberkleit is the Co-CEO of Archie Comics. She is a well-respected educator, public speaker, and internationally-recognized entrepreneur.

Nancy's years with Archie Comics have been dedicated to promoting graphics as an academic resource for communicating in today's world. In Nov. 2012, Nancy spoke at INK Talks in Pune India and returned months later to be part of Globe One. Her visit to India connected her to Flame University, where students shared their thoughts on global education and getting young people interested in education. Her philanthropy has been steadfast throughout the United States and abroad with the passion to encourage youth to embrace her message: "Never let anyone define who they want you to be. You know who you are. Get active in your life."
Nancy maintains an intrigue for an entrepreneurial course of study for today's minds. These words are echoed in her lectures:
"Never question if you can. Only question why would you ever think you cannot! Stay on task. Focus. Never let anyone draw you into their box. Create your personal path that rises above and beyond this universe. Technology made you global thinkers; let your thoughts take you anywhere and everywhere. Today you are the generation that will show us what we do not know."
