Back by popular demand, Randy Dean, MBA, will teach you strategies for better managing your e-mail overload, including strategies for better prioritizing incoming e-mails, converting e-mails into calendar, task, and/or contact items, reducing e-mail distraction, and automating certain e-mail actions for better efficiency. He'll also show a handy strategy for automating some of your outgoing e-mails, and even discuss better management of CC's, forwards, replies, and "FYI's". Attendees to this session walk out with tangible skills and techniques for gaining efficiency and productivity with e-mail, using the two market-leading software programs: MS Outlook and Gmail.

At the end of this program, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the nature of e-mail & information overload in today's workplace
  • Have a strategy for “splitting” work, personal, and junk/spam e-mails for greater efficiency
  • Use a very simple “rule” for managing all incoming e-mail that allows for both greater speed and prioritization of those messages and embedded tasks
  • Learn how to convert e-mails quickly into tasks, contacts, and calendar items
  • Use embedded functions inside of your e-mail that allow you to “automate” certain common activities/messages
  • Build a personal file “infrastructure” that can assist in achieving greater organization and possibly even “e-mail ZERO”!
  • Better manage both sent and received CC's, Forwards, and Replies, to reduce confusion and increase communication capabilities.
