  • "Leave the Office Earlier®"
    keynote from Laura's book
    How to Get More Done in Less Time... and Feel Great About It
    Based on Laura's bestselling book of the same title (Broadway Books, 2004), this is her flagship time management keynote on how to be more productive at work, so you can achieve the same results in less time and leave the office earlier®. In this high-energy, hysterical presentation, Laura shows you how to keep technology from controlling your time; stay focused and concentrate; communicate with your team and boss to improve personal productivity; plug productivity leaks in your day; build consistent personal routines; eliminate annoying time wasters; and improve your personal efficiency.

  • "Find More Time"
    How to Get Things Done and Organize Your Life
    Based on Laura's book of the same title (Broadway Books, 2006), this is her work/life balance keynote that adds in the element of your personal life. Perfect for groups that want to take a more holistic approach to productivity in life, not simply work. Successful people don't want to trade personal satisfaction for professional achievement; they know high performance depends on both. Professionals must be able to balance work and family without sacrificing either. This encouraging, lively, results-oriented keynote offers key principles and techniques to help professionals eliminate obstacles to success; work smarter at work; and balance time across their lives. Perfect for audiences of busy men and women who work hard all day and go home to-the second shift-the job they don't get paid for. Learn to match time to values while juggling work, kids, chores, volunteering, errands, and household projects. Laura's ideas will help you improve your productivity at home, get more done than ever before, and have more time to enjoy your life.
  • The Exhaustion Cure
    UP Your Energy From LOW to GO in 21 Days
    Based on Laura's book of the same title (Broadway Books, 2008), this is her energy speech on how to be productive when you can't pick yourself up off the couch. Lack of energy is a common complaint at work and home, and many people sleepwalk through the day, fuzzyheaded and lethargic. Nothing sounds more attractive than putting your head down on your desk for a quick nap. How can you possibly begin that big project requiring high levels of creativity and concentration? If the mere thought of having more energy leaves you totally exhausted, you need this program! Perfect for the pooped. You can know all the productivity tips in the world, but nothing will work if you don't have the energy to give 100 percent. Laura boosts your energy with physiological strategies (such as diet, exercise, and sleep), behavioral strategies (such as tolerations, relaxation, and pacing), and environmental strategies (such as lighting, noise, and clutter). Discover the Energy Bandits that sap your energy every day and learn to fight back with Energy Boosters.
  • "Get More Work From Fewer People Without Making Them Hate You or Quit”
    Based on Laura's fourth, upcoming book, this is Laura's leadership keynote, suited for professionals who are responsible for improving the productivity of direct reports or teams and have to get more done with fewer people. Perfect for leadership development programs and executive retreats. Good leaders understand that time management is not about squeezing more into the day; it's about you and your people spending time productively toward the accomplishment of organizational goals. Managing the clock isn't the answer-teaching employees to manage themselves is. If a mountain of deadlines and a staff that surfs the Internet for pleasure is keeping you awake at night, bring Laura in for guidance. This program teaches you how to coach employees to peak performance; manage meetings; use your admin more effectively; improve process efficiencies; delegate instead of do; maintain an "open door" policy while guarding against "drop in" visitors; create tracking and reminder systems; use Outlook to delegate and track assigned tasks; craft communication protocols governing the use of technology; avoid "speed bumps" in employees' paths; eliminate activities that waste time; and model effective personal productivity behavior.
