Time is one of our most precious resources. Yet we battle daily to make the best use of it. During our closing Keynote, Lisa will demonstrate how to get more done in less time with less stress. She’ll show you how to maximize productivity and set priorities by learning where you need to take control. She’ll explore time management systems and methodologies, tools and techniques, project lists and to-do lists. You’ll discover the psychology behind procrastination and perfection, multi-tasking, saying no and dealing with interruptions. She’ll equip you with the confidence and clarity you’ll need to head home with a laser- focused plan to juggle tasks and responsibilities.
