Her proprietary Empowered Productivity System has been embraced by the likes of the U.S. Army, L’Oreal and Dell. 

He keynote address is "Control Your Attention, Control Your Life! Attentiona Management is the New Path to Productivity!" The description reads: "Busy professionals rely on technology to live and work. However, this very technology presents some of our greatest challenges: distractions that constantly derail us not only from the task at hand, but from the path that we determine for our lives. To manage “information overload,” most of us turn to the lessons of time management, but these techniques are outdated and irrelevant. It’s time to learn work-life management skills more suitable for the 21st century. Maura Thomas will help you discover the number one skill for the future: “attention management.” In addition, this presentation will provide secrets to help you:

  • Learn how you are sabotaging your own productivity and attention.
  • Harness your attention to unleash your genius.
  • Discover strategies to tame technology and turn it into the solution, rather than the problem.
  • Lower stress and improve clarity and peace of mind."

The 2022 International Restoration Convention & Industry Expo is scheduled for April 11-13, 2022 at the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino in Reno, Nev. The event will include educational sessions taught by restoration industry thought leaders, updates on the RIA's industry advocacy efforts, and industry offerings in an exhibit hall.
