Time Managment

Have you an out of control to do list? If so, then join the gang. It is no surprise that time management is a highly sought-after skill both at work and at home. It is also a skill which presents us with daily challenges. Organising your day so that you are as productive as possible isn’t easy because of the constant interruptions that occur daily. Today, many people face the additional challenges of a hybrid working environment.

This practical session of real-world learnings is based on Sean McLoughney’s latest book ‘Time Management’ and over 12 years research and will outline how you can apply some simple principles to help you organise your day, week and month both at work and at home.

  • proven practical tips and techniques.
  • checklists and templates to help you improve how you use your time.
