With more and more demands placed on us we sometimes struggle to prioritise and complete all our tasks. This may leave us feeling deflated if we feel we have not accomplished all we set out to do by the end of the day. This session will introduce you to ideas and techniques to help you maximise your productivity without creating more work for yourself.
