Event description

Description

We are pleased to have partnered with John Jarrett Business Services to provide open training programmes to professionals across all sectors of business and the law on leadership and time management.

Overview

We all have at least 120% of stuff to do in 100% of time and for most of us this is just as true in ourwork lives as it is in our home lives. The term ‘managing time’ is an oxymoron, like a ‘knownsecret’, it’s a contradiction of terms. You cannot manage time, but you can manage yourself moreeffectively. The art of being more effective is to accept that 20% of stuff with never get done, - butyou must ensure that the 20% of stuff that doesn’t get done, doesn’t come back to bite you!

Who should attend:

Anyone who wants to take a more proactive approach in managing their lives – at work and socially.
