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 behavior, 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.
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.
Curt’s new book, Can I Have Your Attention?: Inspiring Better Work Habits, Focusing Your Team, and Getting Stuff Done in the Constantly Connected Workplace, will be published in fall, 2017.
