Session Information

Join us for a session of the Marketplace Webinar Series: Taming the Email Beast

We live in a world with far too many inputs, distractions, and e-mails.  And too many professionals are struggling to keep up, feeling helpless as they lose control of their inbox.  In this program, 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 use that same strategy when using smart phones & tablets.  Attendees to this session walk out with tangible skills and techniques for gaining efficiency and productivity with e-mail, with specific technology demonstrations provided in the two market-leading software programs:  MS Outlook (now featuring Outlook 2013!) and Gmail, although users of just about any e-mail software tool will benefit!

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
Reduce the inherent distraction of e-mail and other inputs by following a smarter regimen and using on-board notifiers to manage critical/urgent messages and people
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”!
