Title: Effectively Prioritize the Things on Your To-Do List
Priorities are things that are important—you know that. But a lot of us are guilty of the habit of reacting to the urgent things on—and off—our to-do list, rather than responding to the important ones. I can show you a simple and effective way to prioritize your to-do list and get more positive results.

1:30 pm – Keynote
Title: Getting Things Done – The Art of Stress-free Productivity

If you are in a leadership role you may be wearing many hats every day. Your todo list is growing faster than you can get things done. In fact, your email inbox may have become your to-do list.

You have 10 things on your mind every day, weighing you down …. colleagues asking for help, clients to follow up with, your boss to get back to, buy eggs …. the list goes on!

What if, you could stop worrying about things and just focus your efforts on things that matter. What if all your tasks could be completed on time, without you panicking at the last minute? What if you could always be one step ahead of your peers?

Welcome to the Getting Things Done (GTD) framework! Introduced by David Allen some 15 years ago, this framework teaches you how to get on top of your tasks and projects. By investing a small amount of time to learn and implement this framework you can significantly improve the quality of your work and get a lot more done!

So, are you ready to double your effectiveness at work?
