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.
Hope you will be able to join us!
