Wednesday, August 15, 2018:  2:00 PM - 3:30 PM


 

Bottom line … we get a ton of email every day. How we choose to deal with that email determines if we will be overloaded and overwhelmed or productive and efficient. We have a limited amount of time and this workshop will give you tools and techniques to streamline your interaction with your email so you can have more time for other important projects. Using organizational techniques of labels, stars, and filters, as well as time management best practices, you will learn to keep what’s important right in front of you and be able to quickly find what you are looking for. This session will incorporate instructor-led demonstration and hands-on guided practice.
