How to Organize Office Space in 24 hours

Many people feel overwhelmed just walking into their office in the morning. Upon arrival they take a look at the piles of paper, Post-It notes, and clutter strewn across their desk and instantly feel unproductive because they can't even decide where to begin. Next they sigh and head for the nearest coffee machine, hoping the answer will somehow stare back at them through their morning dose of caffeine. They head back to their desk and decide to start eliminating one pile, only to realize they are creating another in the process. They are caught in a vicious cycle that they can't seem to find their way out of, and they are losing hours of productivity each day in trying to figure it out.

Pam has helped many people break out of this cycle in just 24 hours through her time management presentations and training. She teaches her audiences how to organize office space in a way that supports their priorities and how to simplify their life by managing their focus, not their time.
