My goal for each presentation, speech or workshop is for every participant to leave with at least one actionable item. I love combining my education background with my years as a Professional Organizer to create instant and lasting change in the productivity and clarity of the audience.
A Speaker with Strong Education Roots
Kerry Thomas earned her Bachelor's and Master’s degrees in Special Education at the University of Florida. She taught for 8 years and was tasked with creating the curriculum and implementing the first Community Based Instruction program for middle school students in Pinellas County, Florida.
During this time she also became a Strategic Intervention Model™ trainer and instructed other teachers in how to implement Learning Strategies with learners (including adolescents with learning disabilities). Teaching these day-long workshops was the spark and beginning of her speaking career.
Anyone Can Have a Productive Environment
She launched her own business in 2007. In 2014, Kerry completed a rigorous training program to become a Certified Productive Environment Specialist™. Kerry uses this training to help her clients create and maintain systems that address their individual issues.
Kerry specializes in small business owners with ADD, and believes that anyone can have a productive environment, all it takes is the right combination of tools and techniques. Through the Productive Environment Institute, she was a presenter in the Productivity Power Up webinar series as well as a featured speaker at the 2015 "Less Clutter, More Business" retreat.
Kerry Will Make a Difference for Your Group
Kerry has spoken and taught workshops to groups such as Hewlett Packard, Northern Virginia Birth Services, Loudoun Business Women, Long and Foster, Arcola UMC, American Disposal, and numerous networking groups. She also had the honor of speaking at the inaugural TEDx Ashburn event in April 2017.
She is a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers, Faithful Organizers, CHADD (the national association for children and adults with ADD) and the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce.
