- Homepage for the Wine Industry Summit Announces Keynote Speaker Maura Thomas

by Press Release
August 13, 2019, the wine industry's leading online job site, is proud to announce the keynote speaker for the upcoming Summit, taking place on September 4 at The Archer Hotel in Napa, Calif., will be award-winning speaker, trainer and author, Maura Thomas.

Thomas’s keynote address, entitled How to Create Success and Gain Productivity Every Day, will center around the idea of attention management in the workplace. Office-place interruptions are inevitable, whether personal or professional in nature, but it’s how employees address these distractions that dictate how productive they are in the workplace. “Attention management allows you to be more proactive than reactive. It means you decide where your attention goes instead of letting outside demands decide it for you,” says Thomas in an excerpt from her upcoming book, Attention Management: Breaking the Time Management Myth for Unrivaled Productivity.

During her talk, Thomas will share insights into how to create a more focused workspace, how to develop attention management skills, and how managers and employers can provide the support necessary to successfully develop and maintain this kind of environment.
