8:30 – 10:00 a.m. | What Do You Do With Your 86,400 Seconds Per Day | Ann Max
There are 365 days in a year which translates into 8760 hours, 525,600 minutes and 31,536,000 seconds. The business climate and constantly evolving technology means that it is imperative, more than ever, that we make the best use of each and every one of those seconds.

To be successful, goals must be identified, priorities clarified and schedules established that are realistic. Plans must be formulated that are effective and efficient. Learn to take control over your time and your environment to reduce the stresses of everyday life. Combine these skills with practical systems and processes that allow you to live efficiently and productively.

Participants will learn to:

Working in today’s reactive, fast-paced and demanding environments requires a herculean effort. We are constantly stressed and out-of-control due to multiple demands on our time and energy. Numerous projects, interruptions, urgent requests and constant changes in technology prevent us from managing our time and meeting deadlines.

We need to deal with priorities, manage expectations and maintain a high quality of commitment to our clients and stakeholders. How do you maintain the momentum and makes the best use of your time? How do you say no, find time for personal growth and improve your productivity?

If you feel that you never have time to complete your tasks, are not accomplishing your goals and are torn in all directions, this very practical program is for you. It delivers skills you can immediately incorporate into your everyday work schedule. Leave at the end of every day with a feeling of success and accomplishment.
