Course Description

Every day, busy professionals are getting buried under a continuing stream of both useful and useless e-mail. Without a system for getting “control of the beast”, professionals spend much of their work (and personal) time spinning wheels and feeling highly unsatisfied. If you would like to get control of your e-mail “beast”, you should attend this program led by Randy Dean, MBA, author of the Amazon bestseller, Taming the E-mail Beast.

In this online CPE course Randy Dean shares strategies for effective e-mail management, organization, and prioritization (featuring live and newly updated demos in popular programs like MS Outlook and Gmail) that have helped thousands of business professionals regain control and sanity with their e-mail activities (one university client even found that the average attendee saved more than 2 hours per week by taking this program!) Enhance your productivity and efficiency with e-mail today, and walk away with immediately usable tips and techniques!
