Invite Neen to Speak at Your Event

Ask people if they want to get more done and perform to their highest potential, and they will say “YES!” But HOW- right? Today’s leaders and team members live, work and breath in a whirlwind 24/7 commitments, distractions, data, and deadlines.

And THAT? Leads people to feel STRESS, OVERWHELMED and OUT OF CONTROL. Something has got to give right?

That is where Neen comes in. 

In her insanely high energy, business motivational keynotes, sales and leadership speaker Neen James empowers people with the kind of straight-talk strategies that lead them to make more money, get more done and focus on what really matters.

Your team will show up every day ready to take on the world—and motivate others to achieve more, too. And it all begins with attention. 

Neen’s keynotes are totally interactive, all about your audience. She’s fun, irresistibly upbeat and brimming with unique Aussie charm! Don’t be fooled. There’s plenty of substance behind the sass. A sales, leadership expert and productivity expert, Neen shares bold, real-world strategies that can be implemented as soon as people get back to work and also at home and in their communities.

Neen’s Signature Keynotes

Neen’s keynotes are all customized to meet the requirements of your industry and conference theme. Her office is happy to arrange an autograph signing of  Attention Pays (excited to be published by Wiley in 2018) or Folding Time (available now) books for attendees.


Attention PaysTM

Neen’s most requested keynote. Why? It changes EVERYTHING.

To get the results you want, you need to get attention. But most people don’t know how to get it and keep it.

People often see attention as a transaction, something to trade, but it’s much more than that. Neen has identified that people pay attention at three different levels: personal, professional, and global, and she’s designed a powerful methodology that makes it easy to leverage all three. 

Neen’s Intentional Attention model helps individuals and organizations be more deliberate about the choices we make and the actions we take.

Join speaker, author, and sassy little Aussie, Neen James, and discover what makes attention valuable and why paying attention in very specific ways drives profitability, productivity, and accountability.  

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 levers
  • A simple framework to get your team aligned, focused and executing faster than ever

After a recent presentation on the topic, a Comcast Executive shared, “Neen motivated, captivated, and inspired an auditorium of senior leaders. She showed us how 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.

Paying attention = increased sales
Paying attention = increased productivity
Paying attention = increased engagement
Paying attention = increased accountability

D. D’Eletto, Managing Partner, Meeting Alliance

Neen is an outstanding speaker. I’ve had the pleasure of hearing her speak at several events over the past few years, and have been highly impressed and energized each time. In some cases, her sessions have been ‘Standing Room Only’ – i.e. so popular and highly attended that people have stood around the edges of the room and in doorways, just to hear her. Her style is engaging, entertaining, direct, energy-filled, witty and full of flair. She delivers content that is insightful and valuable, and she provides practical, easy-to-use tips and guidelines for implementation. Audiences routinely leave her sessions energized and buzzing about how enjoyable and helpful they found her keynote. I always look forward to attending events when she is speaking, and highly recommend Neen James.

R. Kauffman, Performance Manager/Event Manager

Neen is one of the most energizing, engaging, and crowd-pleasing keynote speakers we have had the good fortune to have at our annual conference. She not only gave great tips on leadership and productivity that our attendees could take home and use right away, but she somehow managed to create personal relationships with everyone in the audience, and developed a real understanding of their issues and challenges. She is just amazing!
