“I worked with Neen whilst running the Cisco Sales Associate Program. The program was designed to train early in career Account Managers and Systems Engineers from 52 countries worldwide. Neen was able to give great advice regarding productivity, professionalism and building a brand and was consistently amongst our highest rated guest speakers. Most recently she advised me prior to a major speaking event. Neen is down to earth, a fabulous speaker, fun to work with and adds real value to professionals of all ages.”

"We were honored to have Neen as our closing speaker at the 7th Annual Pharmaceutical Meeting Management Forum in Philadelphia in late March. Even though she was scheduled to present until the end of the two-day conference, she spent the entire two days with us, getting to know our niche of the meetings and events industry and getting to know most of us by name. Her warmth, good humor, and laughter are infectious! Her presentation on super productivity was spot on. She knew her audience and delivered a message I very much appreciated. I now know why I like to get up early and work before the phone starts to ring and the e-mails become incessant. Neen is a wonderful speaker and I highly recommend her.”
Betsy Bair, editorial director, Medical Meetings/MeetingsNet, Penton Media, co-organizer of the Pharmaceutical Meeting Management Forums
“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 workshop. I always look forward to attending events when she is speaking, and highly recommend Neen James.”
