Providing empowering techniques to drive personal productivity and projects.

These days, we all have to deal with a tsunami of information and the many channels through which it comes; email, text, Twitter, LinkedIn, newsletters etc. Often, we find ourselves dealing with a huge number of messages which fragment our attention and cause us to neglect what truly matters.Therefore, we need efficient and effective techniques to help keep the problem under control. This 1-day workshop addresses that need, providing practical tools and techniques that can be used immediately.


  • People of all levels of seniority and experience, irrespective of job role
  • Those who want ‘non-gimmicky’ practical tools and techniques to improve their productivity, effectiveness and job satisfaction
  • Everyone who feels that their daily challenge resembles an up-hill climb


  • New practical tools and techniques for personal and team use
  • How to select those most appropriate for you and apply them at work or at home, in any context
  • How to manage stress and map team responsibilities


  • Lean and Agile management practices
  • Management of that most precious commodity – your time – focusing on one thing at a time, delegation and the use of your Prime Time
  • Prioritising your work and your in-trays
  • Recognising and dealing with stress and how to use high performance
  • Tools and techniques such as Evernote, Trello, GTD, RACI Matrices and Kanban


  • No ‘standard’ or ‘class’ scenario. Delegates are invited to bring their own real-life organisational challenges, ‘to do lists’, diaries, laptops etc.  This is one workshop that actually encourages people to bring smartphones!
  • Delegates will leave having already made a start on improving their own self-organisation and with renewed confidence
  • Improved personal performance, delegation skills and reduction in wasted time


We are located on Senghennydd Road in the centre of Cardiff, and close to train and bus stations.
