Our Webinar - Reclaiming Your Time

Watch this webinar (14 July 2021) from Penny Rowden in conjunction with the Chichester Chamber of Commerce & Industry. 

Attendees gained tips on how to assess time management - for both them and their staff. A common complaint of being too busy should not be an excuse and Penny suggested, 'Work smarter, not harder.'

She shared 7 habits of highly effective people and offered some useful advice on how to reclaim time and allocate it to more meaningful tasks.
