Curt Steinhorst

Expert On Strategic Communications In The Age Of Distraction

Bio

Curt Steinhorst is on a mission to help today’s workforce win the battle against digital distractions. Having spent years studying the impact of tech on human behaviour, he now equips professionals across the world to work smarter and stronger in this constantly-connected age.

A  leading voice on strategic communications in the age of distraction, Curt’s clients range from more than ten companies on the Fortune 100 and global leadership associations such as YPO, EO, and Million Dollar Roundtable, to professional sports teams and even Taylor Swift’s record label.

Curt is also the bestselling author of Can I Have Your Attention?: Inspiring Better Work Habits, Focusing Your Team, and Getting Stuff Done in the Constantly Connected Workplace.

As a business owner, entrepreneur, and founder of FocusWise, Curt sees how poor focus impacts today’s workplace and its leaders. His fascination with distraction is not simply professional. Diagnosed with ADD as a child, he’s worked tirelessly to overcome the unique distractions that today’s technology creates, and understands how profoundly digital connectivity is transforming people of every age.

Discovering a rare gift for capturing the attention of large audiences at an early age, Curt was elected President of his 10,000 member class at Texas A&M University, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude.

His personal experiences serving as a speaking coach and speech writer for top performers, from executives, TV personalities, and TED Talk presenters, to NFL hall of famers, Olympic gold medalists, and the Heisman Trophy winner, make him a powerful and entertaining communicator.

Can I Have Your Attention? Focus Your Team and Get Stuff Done In the Distracted Workplace +

For the first time in history, we live in a world without any barriers to connection or communication.  This has fundamentally altered the way people work, engage, communicate, and relate to one another.  The same technology that simplifies processes compromises our focus and makes it ever more difficult to reach increasingly distracted customers.  Attention resources have never been more competed over, or more depleted.   We are asked to process four times the information that Americans dealt with in 1986, but with less space and time to actually think. Advertisements, alerts, emails, constant notifications—no wonder the average American struggles to make it three minutes without being interrupted!

In this intensely practical and informative speech, Curt Steinhorst discusses the great challenges we face in a constantly-connected world.  He pulls back the curtain to reveal: How did we get here?  How deep does this distraction issue go?  And where do we go from here?

Curt’s speeches provide customized solutions for the distinct challenges facing each unique audience. --

Can I Have Your Attention? Reach the Distracted Customer +

Today’s buyer is harder to reach than ever, and even harder to keep. Their attention drives their decision-making, and that attention is ever more divided.  To effectively reach them, marketers must radically alter their strategies. Your customer’s brain been rewired.  What does that mean for your sales techniques?

In this market-focused speech, Curt Steinhorst answers: What counterintuitive communication methods can you use to surprise and delight clients who have had everything thrown at them? What shifts in behavior and expectations must you conform to before you have any chance of reaching them?  How can you leverage your customer’s distracted state to communicate more effectively with them? --
