How to save 1 hour every day with email & task management

28% of work time is spent on email, and 30-40% is spent looking for documents. We often forget our tasks, as we have more data inputs by 9:15 every day than we did in one whole week 20 years ago. No-one needs to be taught how to send, reply or forward emails, but in 2017 very few email users have a strategy for how to tackle email efficiently and accurately (making sure none are missed). In this talk you will learn how to:

  • Following the TRAIL method of email & task management, which deals with tasks efficiently whilst letting nothing slip through the cracks (including various social media outlets)
  • Setting up one click emails similar to a “Facebook like”
  • Search for & find 99% of emails in 1 min or less
  • Task management software recommendation
  • How to send emails directly from Microsoft Office apps
  • Type once & reuse often techniques
  • How to categorise a task list

“The software that white collar workers use day to day today is the same we used 20 years ago. The Microsoft Office version may be higher but 90% of users of Office 2016 haven’t clicked on many buttons that weren’t there in Office 97, a product that predates ipods, Smart Phones and even Google.com. Unleash the potential of the software you already own”. – David Benaim
