Do you sometimes feel that you’re never caught up?

Are there days you are too burned out to enjoy any downtime you might squeeze in?

Do you find yourself distracted and unable to focus multiple times during the work day?

You’re busy, but you’re definitely not productive.


Enter speaker, author and leadership coach Neen James.

CEO Think Tank® is thrilled to welcome her back as our Key Note Speaker for our 13th Annual Growth Strategies Breakfast.

Neen believes that in order to lead a more successful life (both personal and professional) it pays to pay attention. Her latest book – Attention Pays is dedicated to giving her readers the tools, strategies and mindsets to focus and reach their full potential.  As Neen says, “Paying attention is the most crucial part of completing tasks and getting things done!”

Plan on attending and you’ll learn:

  • Why we get attention wrong (and how to get it right)
  • The three types of attention – Personal, Professional, and Global and how to master each
  • Strategies to design work and personal environments for optimal attention and focus
  • How to turn your technology and devices from frustrating distractions to powerful productivity levers
  • A simple framework to get your team aligned, focused, and executing faster than ever

With Neen as your guide, you’ll practice intentional attention, developing the skills to help you be happier in your relationships – in the office and at home.

Having worked with a number of Fortune 500 companies (Viacom, Comcast, and Marriott, to name a few) Neen James is one of the world’s top leadership speakers.  One Comcast Executive shared, “Neen motivated, captivated, and inspired an auditorium of our senior leaders. She showed us how our good leaders can become great leaders and is a trusted mentor to our company. Neen is in a league of her own. Her impact on our organization simply can’t be overstated.”
