Working Smarter: Inbox Zero
Course Description:

This 60-minute webinar will introduce the Inbox Zero method and show you how to get you set up so that you can save time, prioritise effectively, and reduce anxiety. 

You will get started during the session by setting up the system and getting going.  You will leave ready to try out the approach before adapting it to suit your way of working. Inbox Zero will help you feel more in control of your work and more confident you are working on the right things.
