David Allen and Eric Mack Present at Lotusphere 2009
Maximizing Personal Productivity at Lotusphere 2009
LOTUSPHERE, ORLANDO, FL, January 15, 2009 – The David Allen Company (DAC) today announced that international best selling author, David Allen and eProductivity Specialist, Eric Mack, will present two sessions at Lotusphere 2009 on January 19 & 20.
Maximizing Personal Productivity with IBM Lotus Notes
BP304: 5:00 PM on January 19, at the Swan Hotel (SW 7-10)
People often talk about Lotus Notes being an "organizational" productivity tool; that's the way Lotus Notes is marketed and it's often the way organizations deploy it -- as a top down solution. Seldom do you hear about Lotus Notes being used for "personal" productivity or knowledge management. As a consequence many users see Notes as a "company" tool and not "their" tool. When tools become "personal," productivity increases and when personal productivity increases so does the productivity of the workgroup and the organization. This session will show both expert and novice Notes users how they can use Notes coupled with proven best practices to make them immediately more productive.
Getting Things Done with Lotus Notes
BOF408: 7:00 AM on January 20, at the Swan Hotel (SW Mockingbird 1-2)
This community of interest will explore ways to make using Lotus Notes more productive by making it “personal.” When tools become “personal,” productivity increases and when personal productivity increases, so does the productivity of the workgroup and the organization. This interactive discussion will bring together expert and novice Lotus Notes users to share how they are using Notes for personal action and information management.
“Eric Mack's approach to personal knowledge management and David Allen's GTD® methodology are natural companions. Add in Lotus Notes, and you have a great combination that can help individuals be more productive,” said Ed Brill, director Lotus Notes, IBM Lotus. “David and Eric have been long-time advocates for Lotus Notes and I am looking forward to seeing this session at Lotusphere.”
David Allen will also be signing copies of his new book, "Making It All Work" in the Lotusphere product showcase, immediately following the Monday evening session.
