Brief Description:  Modern day humanoids find themselves overwhelmed with the sheer volume of input and digital communication that flows in each day. Email, instant messages, and the Internet have made access to information (and you) far too easy. “I only have 54 emails left to answer” is too often the depressing indicator of a successful day.  

 The good news is that while access to information (and you) have increased exponentially, so have tools to help manage those streams of digital input and communication.

 This workshop will discuss the wide range of useful and productive applications that can help you create and manage an efficient (and enjoyable?) workflow system.


Desired Outcomes:

Participants will walk away with a variety of tools to help them take back control of their digital life.   An understanding of efficient and effective workflow systems will be covered.


Workflow systems include:

  • Effective use of personal digital assistants
  • Getting to inbox zero
  • Note taking systems
  • Online and offline task management
  • The power of RSS
  • Collaboration tools
  • Bringing it all together
