Webinar Speaker Bios:

Nathan Zeldes - President & Chairman, IORG and Founder - Nathan Zeldes Consulting

In a nutshell: I’ve been working on Email Overload at Intel since 1995, when I realized that this problem is not only a major productivity killer, but is also making countless people miserable; something had to be done! Since then I’ve developed a variety of organization-wide remedial programs, first for Email Overload and later also for Interruptions. Some of these I shared external to Intel, which formed the connections that later led to my co-founding the IORG with Mary Czerwinski and Sheizaf Rafaeli. At present I continue to drive this subject in my new career as an independent technology consultant. I hold an MSc in Applied Physics from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel, where I and my wife live. My hobbies include recreational computer programming, collecting artifacts from the history of computing.
