Goodbye work overload.

Hello order and control.

From email-overwhelm to paper overload, time-wasting meetings to small projects in disarray – close to 14 000 people who use MS Outlook, in 320+ companies in 12 countries, are using our proven strategies, tips, tricks, and techniques to make their life easier.

It works. For anyone, anywhere, at any time – whether you like it or not. 

Before meeting us, our clients struggled with the following challenges.
Maybe one or more of them are true for you as well?

Email overwhelm.

The first email was sent in 1971.  50 years later an estimated 320 billion emails were sent, and by 2025 it is estimated to be 376 billion emails.  Email is going nowhere soon.  Without a solid strategy to deal with your Inbox it can become overwhelming.  We are here to prevent that.

Effective prioritisation

Prioritisiong your daily work effectively is challenging enough with the demand of “everything is urgent”.  And on top of that things keep changing all the time and you have to re-prioritise on the fly.   Our system of prioritising and organising by context makes this a breeze

Unproductive meetings

Whether you work remotely, in the office or a hybrid, meetings are here to stay. Sadly, most meetings are not outcome-based and tend to waste a lot of time.  People stray off the point.  There is no agenda to begin with. And there is no improvement method.

Wasting time looking for information

People hop from folder to folder to sub-sub-folder to save and then find information. This is unnecessary since we live in Gen S – Generation Search. Time to change your filing system into a finding system? It’s easier done than said.

Managing small projects

The main challenge people face is how to keep track of multiple small projects.  To have a single system for planning, communicating and tracking. To filter out time-wasters and low-value projects that abosrb resources.

Stay focused with all the distractions

We live in a world of notifications – but only if we allow them!  From switching off email notifications to saying “No!” makes life easier.  It may be difficult to get used to doing it, but remember “what we allow will remain”.  Learn how to set and protect boundaries.

Gerrit Cloete and Duncan Hattingh:
Your Guides and Companions in the Productivity Club

Gerrit: Cloete
My job on the planet is to keep discovering new (and old) ways of getting the right things done easier, faster, and better, and when I find something, I just have to tell anyone who wants to listen about it.

My quest to master personal productivity has taken many fascinating turns and brought me in contact with Stephen Covey (The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People), David Allen (Getting Things Done), Jerry Fletcher (Pattern of High Performance) and more giants in the productivity and effectiveness arena.

Over the years I distilled the best pieces of ‘productivity music’ which I am now ‘conducting’ to inspire the members of my orchestra to play their best version of it.  Members of the Productivity Club, are the main members of the Productivity Symphony.

Duncan Hattingh
As the voicemail message on his cell phone says: ”If I can’t take your call I am either in a workshop or out cycling!”

Duncan’s industrial engineering background and his love of the “ooh” and “aahhh” moments when people learn a really cool trick in MS Outlook, are his inspiration and motivation in helping people use their technology in ways that make them more productive.

Was there life before the Internet, cell phones and gadgets? Duncan’s glad he missed it!

We look forward to joining you on your journey to personal productivity mastery. To help you manage your workload more efficiently. To get things done easier, faster, and better.
