It’s a prevalent challenge among professionals: how do we get more done in a world of bottomless opportunities and endless distractions? New York Times bestselling author Jon Acuff will join us at SPN’s 26th Annual Meeting to share what you and your organization can do to ensure everyone meets their goals.

Jon Acuff SPN Annual Meeting speaker

According to a study conducted by the University of Scranton, 92% of resolutions fail. That’s a staggering number considering how important goals are to companies and organizations. What if we could do some simple things to improve how often we finished what we started?

Drawing on themes from his new book Finish, Jon will cover easy changes we can make in our organizations to improve our ability to meet our goals. Some of the ideas are obvious. Some are counterintuitive. Some will surprise you, but the best part is they actually work. The good news is that you can learn to finish. It’s not a natural talent some people have and others do not. But, it can be taught, and SPN’s Annual Meeting will be a great opportunity to learn how the network can see missions and goals through. Starting is fun, but the future belongs to the finishers.

Jon Acuff is the New York Times Bestselling author of six books including his most recent, Finish: Give Yourself the Gift of Done. For 20 years he’s helped some of the biggest brands in the world tell their story, including The Home Depot, Bose, and Staples.  Most recently he’s spoken to hundreds of thousands of people across the country for companies such as Microsoft, Nissan, and Comedy Central. Featured regularly on national media, Jon has been seen on CNN, Fox News, Good Day LA and several other key outlets.
