Seminar 01A - Tips, Tricks, and Technology to Help You Successfully Manage Your Time

Tuesday, November 03 | 9:30AM–1:00PM | Korbel Ballroom 4F
Session Type: E09 Hybrid
Demands on our time have reached epic levels due to ubiquitous access to communication and information. Employees, clients, students, and colleagues insist on immediate response and engagement. Finding the time to manage resources to interact effectively is increasingly difficult, but solutions exist!

This presentation is designed to give you solid ideas about how to successfully organize your life and take back ownership of your limited time with the use of tools like Gmail, Google Calendar, Remember the Milk, Zap Reader, and other Web 2.0 technologies.

We will explore popular time management techniques like David Allen's Getting Things Done and Stephen Covey's First Things First, but the main focus will be on helping you establish a method for organizing tasks and to-do lists, calendar items, and e-mail and on exploring other organizational and time-saving applications. Opportunities will be provided to share experiences and ideas.

PLEASE NOTE: We suggest you bring a laptop with functioning wireless capabilities to fully participate in the hands-on exercises during the workshop.
