Neen James will be our keynote speaker and guide us to

"Attention Pays: Learn How to Drive Profitability, Productivity and Accountability" 


Neen James, an engaging and proven corporate strategist, as well as speaker, consultant, and author of Folding Time and Attention Pays. She has been named one of the Top 30 Leadership Speakers by Global Guru several years in a row because of her work with companies like Viacom, Comcast, and Virtuoso Travel among others.

We chose Neen because she is a leadership expert who will challenge conference attendees to prioritize focusing on what matters most in their work and lives.

Understanding that attention and productivity can only come after clarifying focus, you will leave with practical strategies that you can then apply personally and professionally to get to where you want to be. She will offer real-world solutions that can be applied in your organization, your home, and your community.

Join us to learn from Neen how to “Crush It” by driving profitability, productivity, and accountability by paying attention to the important things.

Kim E. Fraites-Dow, the CEO of Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania (GSEP), joined the organization in 2011 as the Chief Development and Marketing Officer and later served as Chief Operating Officer. An executive nonprofit leader with 20 years of professional experience, Kim has expertise in managing operations, facilities, product sales, partnerships, marketing and brand management, board relations, and fundraising for nonprofit institutions.

Integral to Kim’s success has been her leadership in recruiting key personnel, building collaboration across diverse teams of people, leading organizational change management, and developing relationships across GSEP’s nine-county footprint. Together with the Board, staff, and volunteers, GSEP earned top 10 status nationally for girl and adult membership, serving close to 40,000 girls with the help of more than 15,000 adult volunteers.
