Use Contextual Models to Bring Your Ideas to Life and Make Them Spread
Stephen Covey’s four quadrants. The Food Pyramid. Simon Sinek’s Golden Circle. These ideas spread and impacted millions of people.
Your ideas are powerful and they deserve to spread. But before they can spread, people need to understand them. And one of the most powerful tools to help people understand your ideas is a contextual model.

• Why visuals are a vital communication tool to accelerate engagement and deeper understanding.
• A proven methodology and specific language to assist sales conversations and provide a competitive edge.

The Luxury Mindset
How to get the attention of the buyer that’s right for your brand
In the world of luxury, it’s tempting for brands to focus on the products and services themselves—the prestige names that signal investment and consumption.
What if I told you that luxury isn’t about expensive things—it’s about experiences?
And that every experience can be elevated by adapting a luxury mindset?
What if there was a way to develop and foster a luxury mindset in your organization, and identify your customers as well so that you can get the attention of the buyer that’s important to your brand?
Using a combination of Neen’s proven systems of attention and her proprietary research on the luxury buyer mindset, she helps luxury brands in the travel, hospitality, and retail space:
- Develop a luxury attention mindset for teams that elevates every client interaction
- Help sales teams appeal to affluent women luxury consumers in their own unique language
- Leverage their assets to best communicate to consumers
- Create exceptional experiences that pay attention to customers and guests and invite them to share their experiences with others
- Understand what unique opportunities that encourage their customers to pay for more exclusivity
