‘Is the Internet killing your business?
Almost everything you do in business these days involves the Internet. Whether it’s an email, looking up information and data, or finding new suppliers, there’s a jolly good chance it involves the Internet. But how much of your time is the Internet taking? Studies show that the Internet is reducing business productivity not increasing it. This presentation will show how the Internet is stealing your time and what you can do about it.
This talk is aimed at anyone who works in the business sector, either as an individual consultant or as part of an office team. Indeed, if you use the Internet at work, this presentation is aimed at you.
At this presentation, you will discover:
- How to regain the time that is taken from you through online activity
- What you need to do to avoid being distracted by the myriad of wonders in the online world, such as social media
- The steps you need to take to improve your productivity in the Internet age
