Come along for a very interactive talk from Liz Hardwick (https://twitter.com/Tech_Geek_Girl) :

"Boost Your Productivity – Processes and apps to create a better work/life balance"

Did you know that the average person spends 13 hours a week looking at and responding to emails? Moreover, if you’re distracted from the task it takes around 16 minutes to refocus on what you were doing. The Parento principle argues that the 80% of your results come from 20% of your actions. By optimising the way you work and introducing productivity workflows, it’s possible to achieve more in less time, and avoid those costly distractions.

In this session we will look at some of the most popular productivity hacks and explore the many apps that can make you super productive, while improving your work/life balance. So if you’re interested in filtering the 80% that drains your time, join us, and find out why tomatoes, frogs and elephants might be the key to a more productive you.

About WiT, Nottingham

We are a monthly meetup for women from all area’s of technology and those with an emerging interest in technology.

As we are celebrating the women in our industry, and not aiming to exclude, the event has a “Bring a Bloke” scheme, meaning each female attendee can bring one male friend if they want to. This keeps a female majority at all times.
