“After tragic stories of young women being harassed and cyber bullied, seeing how the media portrays women, and women being under-represented in media, it’s time to power up the voices and get more women energized through a caring and supportive network of people who know what it takes to achieve success. These women are not afraid to discuss their challenges or even failure along the way,” says Breakenridge.
Neen James on Women Worldwide
Keynote Speaker and Leadership Coach Neen James joins Host Deirdre Breakenridge on Women Worldwide. Neen’s corporate background is in learning and development, and managing large teams throughout several industries. As a motivational keynote speaker, she focuses on productivity and helps leaders get more done, so they can create more significant moments in life. Neen has been referred to as a “force of nature” with “boundless energy.”
On the show, Neen dives into the characteristics of a good speaker. If you’re really interested in speaking, then you have to be authentic, reliable and approachable. She also stresses that you must put aside your ego and make sure you have a quality message. Many people call themselves speakers and just regurgitate someone else’s material. Neen also shares what productivity means to her. She says, “Productivity is having time to do what really matters in your life.” Productivity takes true focus and requires a deadline-oriented approach. Neen works 15-minute blocks of time. “You can get a lot done in 15 minutes,” she says. Her advice to entrepreneurs is to hustle and to make sure you pay attention to what your clients are telling you.
