Editorial time management – In-company training

This session is great if you feel you are not using your time as effectively as you would like. It looks at possible ways around the habits that can make us less effective: how to prioritise; keep emails under control and handle interruptions and requests.

Thank you for such a great course – it was the most practical, accessible and useful time management course I've ever attended, and for once I actually have tangible results!
