During the last twenty-five years, I have been one of a handful of Professional Speakers specializing full-time and exclusively in the topics of Time Management and Personal Productivity. I have made over 2,000 presentations to audiences from around the Globe, and am regularly interviewed by major media including the New York Times, Dallas Morning News, Women’s World, The London Observer, Wall Street Journal, and ABC Radio. I am a Professional Member of the National Speakers Association. My programs are always motivating, entertaining, and filled with practical, common sense tools and techniques to help my audiences achieve more in less time and with less stress. My audiences typically rate my programs as, “The best I have ever attended”. I am the author of “Beat the Clock”, “Organizing Your Life”, “The Productivity Handbook”, and over 100 published articles. When I started conducting Time Management training it was all about a to- do list and a planner. Over and done. That was then. Today, like every area of expertise, the skills of Personal Productivity has grown exponentially to include a wide range of topic areas to help participants get more done, in less time and with stress, both on and off the job. Without learning new and improved tools and techniques personal productivity is stagnant while your competition improves their productivity.
