    Title: GTD – The Art of Stress-free Productivity

    Synopsis: Since the publication of David Allen’s best selling book in 2001, the “Getting Things Done” (GTD) methodology has helped thousands of individuals and teams to deliver on their commitments (both in work and home life) with less stress. GTD has challenged the long held belief that stress is an inevitable pre-requisite for success in the modern world, and enabled practitioners to be more appropriately engaged with their work, their families and their short term and long term goals. And it has enabled people all over the world to achieve more with less time and less stress. A recent survey of people who have undergone the GTD training in the U.K. found that 82% reported they were “considerably or dramatically happier”, and the number who thought they were highly productive increased from less than 30% to more than 80%. This talk will give a brief introduction to the fundamental principles of the methodology, and will show attendees some real tangible behaviour changes they can start putting to work immediately to start reaping the benefits.
