Keynote Presentation at ADRP International Conference (Association of Donor Relations Professionals):
Maximizing effectiveness by better managing time and the onslaught of digital communication
Wednesday, December 8, 2010 9:30am-10:45am Pacific Time (in San Francisco)
Pierre Khawand, founder and principal of People-OntheGo, brings breakthrough insights and revolutionary techniques that tackle the core issues facingtoday's workforce: maximizing effectiveness by better managing time and the onslaught of digital communication.
In today's digital age, information is coming our way from many fronts and in abundance. Keeping track of it and leveraging it becomes very challenging. Researchers tell us that 15% to 30% of our time is spent searching for information, and that more than half of these searches are not fruitful. They estimate the total cost for the U.S. economy is $98 billion dollars per year, and the opportunity cost is twice as high. As individuals, the cost is even higher because it involves our ability to meet our business and personal goals and our satisfaction at work and in our personal lives. In this session, productivity expert Pierre Khawand, founder of People-OnTheGo, will walk us through some key principles that can help us, help our teams, and our organizations overcome the challenges of information overload, and work efficiently together to achieve the desired results. When it comes to the information overload, there is light at the end of the tunnel! So join us to get not only a glimpse of this light, but to learn some thought-provoking principles and techniques that will get you there.

San Francisco, CA - Thursday January 28, 2010-People-OnTheGo releases The Accomplishing More With Less Workbook paperback and Kindle Edition, to help business professionals manage through the challenging economic times
Summary: Pierre Khawand, founder of People-OnTheGo, released The Accomplishing More With Less Workbook paperback and Kindle Edition at Amazon.com, and the free eBook titled "The Results CurveTM: How to Manage Focused and Collaborative Time", which is available for download at http://www.people-onthego.com. The book and eBook enable business professionals to better manage the increasingly challenging work conditions and develop the skills they need to better manage this unprecedented information overload in spite of the reduced training budgets.
San Francisco, CA - January 28, 2010 - Business professionals today are experiencing increasingly challenging work conditions, asked to do more with less resources and less training, bombarded by competing priorities and conflicting demands, and constantly interrupted by email, Instant Messaging, phone calls, meetings and now Facebook updates and Tweets. There is a tremendous need for a new approach for managing time and managing tasks, and collaborating in the workplace. The Accomplishing More With Less Workbook was released by Pierre Khawand, Founder and CEO of People-OnTheGo (http://www.people-onthego.com/), a productivity training company in San Francisco, California, to enable business professionals to overcome these challenges.
"We are bombarded by an unprecedented information overload, and work and live in an era of interruptions where the very technologies that were invented to enhance productivity have made it nearly impossible to get work done" said Mr. Khawand who created the Accomplishing More With Less Methodology as a result of a decade of research and teaching on corporate and academic campuses. "This puts unreasonable demands on our work and personal lives, and as a result, we suffer, feel helpless, and our accomplishments decline. This needs to stop!"
"After drastic budget cuts and layoffs, our staff needed to rethink the way we approach our business with limited resources and support" indicated Lishelle Blakemore, Executive Director, University Relations at UC Berkeley. "We also noticed that people were feeling a loss of control in this new constrained environment." After the one day offsite in which the team experienced The Accomplishing More With Less Methodology, Ms. Blakemore pointed out that the methodology offered practical, strategic and innovative approaches to her team's work and new tools for thinking creatively about achieving their goals. "The results have been remarkable: everyone feels more in control of their work responsibilities and we can now see the new path for success in our current environment" added Ms. Blakemore.
Adam Christensen, CTO of HR Systems at Wells Fargo Corporation, commented as follows: "The Accomplishing More With Less Methodology provided us with specific and pragmatic concepts as opposed to high level recommendations, which are rare to find, and when we rolled out the methodology to the management team, we got similar positive feedback." Subsequently, Mr. Christensen equipped his staff of around two hundred employees with the Accomplishing More With Less Workbook to help them manage through their demanding and complex work schedules.
While traditional time management and goal setting approaches that thrived in the 80's and 90's seem to work well under normal workloads and operating conditions, users are seeking new ways to address their time and information management needs. New solutions that address today's realities including constant interruptions, the need to collaborate virtually with the latest Web 2.0 technologies, and being part of the social media platforms are needed. Companies like People-OnTheGo (http://www.people-onthego.com/) are providing resources that can help. The Accomplishing More With Less Workbook, the Kindle Edition, and the free eBook, are examples of the new and innovate types of cost effective resources that are now available to users.
People-OnTheGo helps business professionals effectively manage their time, their priorities, and their information architecture, by offering them a comprehensive set of training programs that are available in person and virtually. People-OnTheGo delivers its virtual classes via web conferencing and in Second Life. Web self-paced classes are also available 24x7. Topics covered include time management, e-mail management, office applications, collaboration, and virtual team building.
