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.

Inbox Zero: Coping with Email & Social Media

Wednesday, April 21 11:00 AM - 11:50 AM Pacific Time

As a professional in the digital age, and someone who works on a variety of initiatives, projects, events and on-going tasks, you are likely to get your fair share of the 2.8 Billion email messages sent daily in the U.S. (according to IDC), and you are likely to want to stay up-to-date on what is going on in the blogosphere and the social media sphere-from Twitter to Facebook, LinkedIn and whatever is next (all together forming a whole "other" inbox). This overload brings some significant challenges to our already overcrowded inboxes: Tracking unfinished email messages, organizing messages, finding information when you need it are all steps we need to take to keep our email inbox and Social Media feeds under control. In this session, you will experience the big "Ah-Ha's" of effective email inbox organization and social media best practices. Join Pierre Khawand, Founder and Principal of People-OnTheGo, as he helps you to make this transformation today and realize a zero inbox!

Key Takeaways

  • Learn powerful techniques that will transform email from an ad-hoc and time consuming activity into a pleasant and successful one
     
  • Learn how to efficiently organize your email messages and find information when you need it
     
  • Discover best practices for keeping social media "inboxes" well managed and most leveraged
