In this short, direct and fast-paced presentation, Andrew Mellen, “The Most Organized Man in America" and a frequent speaker and trainer within the IIABA community, will show 3 ways to immediately increase agency capacity AND individual productivity. Andrew will address 3 of the biggest bottlenecks for almost every company: EMAIL, INTERRUPTIONS, and MEETINGS — and we all know that as challenging as these issues were when we worked in an office, they create even more problems working remotely. He'll start with interruptions, the biggest cause of lost focus and momentum which has only become worse now that work and home happen in the same place. Then onto email and things we can do instantly to improve and speed up internal communications and our use of email. He'll finish the presentation by offering us ways to make meetings more effective as we lean heavily on video conferencing platforms to take the place of conference rooms—including when to skip meetings altogether. If you're struggling to adapt to your newish work environment while trying to manage your old ineffective work habits, you won't want to miss this session.
