In 2011, publishing giant John Wiley & Sons came to Maura Thomas and invited her to literally write the book on personal productivity.
That was the beginning of her runaway success as a writer and author of now two books, Personal Productivity Secrets (2012), Work Without Walls (2017), and a third coming out in 2019.
Her work and her expertise has been featured in hundreds of national media outlets including The Wall Street Journal, NPR, Fast Company, Forbes, Inc., Entrepreneur, US News and World Report, and the Huffington Post, and she is a regular contributor to the Harvard Business Review, where her articles have been viewed over a million times.
Maura is also a TEDx Speaker (2013), founder (in 2003) of Regain Your Time, awarded as a Certified Speaking Professional by the National Speaker’s Association (a distinction held by only 12% of members worldwide) and she was also named a Top Leadership Speaker for 2018 in Inc. Magazine.
As a productivity trainer her clients include the likes of the U.S. Army, Kaiser Permanente, Dell, Old Navy, and the American Heart Association.
Her presentation style is described most often by audiences as fun, informative, entertaining, and inspiring.
