OD1-111 Technology Solutions for Happier Clients

Course Description
As an organizing/productivity consultant, we are supposed to help remove stress for our clients. One big area is suggesting technology tools that help, not hinder. In this session, we probe common issues that technology can help solve and show you tools your Clients (and you) can put to use right away. We’ll start with the problem and show practical technology-based solutions that will make you look (or feel) like a hero. Some of the Problems we’ll tackle include: syncing smartphones, sharing calendars & files, solutions for the aging population, keeping track of passwords, staying connected using video conferencing both at home and work, managing finances, and handling all the paper and influx of information.While there isn’t time to make you a pro with the tools during the session, you'll learn getting started tips when appropriate, and the detailed handout is worth every penny. A goal is to save you time doing the research on how to solve these problems.
