49. Holding Attention with Neen James

Come on in and join us for episode forty-nine of The Presentation Boss Podcast! Today’s guest is proudly 4’ 10.5” tall but every time we’ve heard or seen her present she oozes both energy, fun and positivity.

We are so excited to have Neen James on the podcast, a fellow Australian currently living in Florida. Her topics of systems, contextual models and attention are three big concepts that anyone presenting should be considering, if not mastering. This was a fun recording across time zones and we know you’ll find super value in this conversation.
