Folding Time™: Achieve Twice As Much in Half the Time
PRECONFERENCE WORKSHOP (Additional charge of $165 for Council members and $205 for non-members)
Neen James, Productivity Expert and Thought Leader, Doylestown, PA
You don’t have time to do everything you only have time to do everything that matters! If we can get clear about those activities that make the biggest difference to our productivity we can get more done in less time and free ourselves up to get on with whatever else we choose.
Never underestimate the freedom to choose what you work on. By ridding ourselves of obligation, poor work methods or egocentric practices we can get more done in less time. Often our work is an ‘unconscious doing’ rather than a ‘conscious choosing’. If you need more hours in the day, work back after everyone has gone home, or find yourself taking work home almost every day then you may be stuck in a productivity trap – this workshop is for you.

Kill the Company: End the Status Quo, Start an Innovation Revolution
Lisa Bodell, CEO, futurethink, New York, NY
Winning innovators embrace change – do you? What holds you back from better innovating, every day? In too many organizations, we’re stuck in the land of status quo. We’ve forgotten how to think differently, and lack the simple tools to solve problems creatively. The very structures put in place to help organizations grow are now holding us back. So, it’s time to Kill the Company! This keynote is an inspirational call to arms: to start a revolution in how we think and how we work.
The key lesson of this Keynote: if we want people to approach change differently, we have to change our approach. You will learn how simplification lets us achieve more and better innovate. This can reignite critical aptitudes such as curiosity, inquiry, creative problem solving, and more.
Lisa will introduce tangible ways to ignite innovation through the dynamic yet simple exercises in the Kill the Company Toolkit, including Kill a Stupid Rule, Killer Queries, Impossible to Possible, and many more. You will leave this Keynote with ways to eliminate needless complexity with simple, inspiring ways to make innovation happen now!
