Tuesday, June 13, 2017 Meeting, Newport Aquarium – The Riverside Room

One Aquarium Way, Newport, KY  41071

SPEAKER: Brennan Scanlon – Time Management & Efficiency at its Best

Like most of us, you probably face unproductive and unnecessary meetings, a mountain of work on your desk and a never-ending wave of voicemails and emails.  It’s a balancing act, where managing yourself, your time and how you react to events outside your control are critical to your success.  This workshop will help you reclaim your time like never before.  Brennan will show you how to remove disorganization from your day and replace it with laser focus, how to prioritize, how to handle interruptions that take you off course, and how “continuous partial attention” affects your productivity.  Finally, Brennan will share how to utilize Dr. Tony Alessandra’s Platinum Rule to get the absolute best out of your team

NOTE:  this will be a joint meeting with NACE (National Association of Catering & Events) so there will be even greater opportunities for networking and a raffle with great prizes!!  Plan to attend.
