Engaging presenter + good core concepts & premise.
I can't wait to share what I learned with the rest of my department! Thank you!
Wish we had more "time" for this piece.
I cleaned up my inbox, and honestly HAVE seen a reduction in stress level during my day.
Funny, informative, captivating!
Loved this segment! This was much needed for me at this point in time. Learning how to better organize my day and even my inbox made me extremely happy!
I thought the presentation was great, and Maura was very engaging.
I think this meeting will go down in history as one of the best ever for us! Our attendees LOVED, LOVED, LOVED you!!
I wanted to say thank you. Your presentation was excellent and so are your ideas.
Loved! This will be very useful and can't wait to read the book. Thank you!
You taught me how to choose what I do with my time, instead of being constantly reactive. Soooooo liberating! Thank you!
I enjoyed your webinar yesterday and for the first time, I feel actually hopeful about finding a system that will help me minimize procrastination and maximize productivity.
Helpful and engaging!
Maura's training session was so eye-opening for me! It's very applicable to all aspects of my life and I am thankful I had the opportunity to attend. I highly recommend this session for absolutely anyone in any business.
Maura was great. Excellent speaker. Excellent content. Tangible tips. Can take this back immediately and apply it.
Fantastic actionable ideas to work through “information overload”.
Very engaging speaker. Very well presented.
I was not a proponent of social media until I heard your presentation. Thanks for the education!
Thanks so much, Maura. Your sessions were the best of the entire two-day conference.
Your talk was the highlight of the conference for me!
This was fantastic. I really hope to be able to apply Maura's suggestions to my daily routines.
I was blown away by Maura's productivity system, with its real-world practicality and outstanding tools. I religiously apply what I have learned from Maura and cannot imagine a better way to organize my day.
I would really like to thank you for a great class! I am using all of your advice and the book is so helpful! Best of all, everything is really starting to work!
We left [this] training feeling inspired, enlightened and ready to take on the to-do lists that had previously overwhelmed us in both our professional and personal lives...Thank you, Maura!
[This training] was really good. Maura did an excellent job and is a great presenter. It would be very useful information for a lot of people in our organization.
Thanks for changing my life in very positive ways. Your information has proven to be valuable for me. I'm actually getting more done, and feel more in control. Thanks for everything.
I found your workshop incredibly helpful! Thank you! I am amazed how energized and organized I now am!
Your message was spot on and the information was eye-opening. I've heard nothing but praise from the attendees. And I can't say that I've ever witnessed a more "professional" presentation.
I'm just getting started with your System, but I'm already seeing extremely practical benefits from just the little I've done! You are a God send!
Maura empowered me with a flexible system that keeps me productive and on track daily. I'm forever grateful!
Maura's book taught me about what the categorization of activities could mean in my life. I chose to implement many parts of her system and I immediately saw what effect this could have on my productivity...A full week using this system has provided me a way to organize my chaos into an actionable plan.
"You brought light to my world. I hope that you continue to work with us. Everyone is talking about your presentation. Thank you. Thank you."
Excellent Presentation and understanding of common inefficiencies!
Very engaging and relevant. One of most pertinent and beneficial sessions I've ever attended at this conference.
We have had a LOT of speakers over the years, and you were definitely among the best!
This was a great perspective on time management. I will be discussing with my department and utilizing what I learned.
You gave me the terms and understanding I needed for what I'm dealing with as an educator - the importance of attention management. Thank you!
Maura is inspiring, informative, fantastic!
This speaker was my favorite of the whole session!
This class was amazing! Great insights and topics were extremely relevant to managing my day.
This was a spectacular presentation - very applicable and informative, and delivered in a fun, energetic manner.
"Great session, even for us old folks!"
Excellent! Thank you! I really needed this!
Great presentation. I appreciated the fresh approach to this age-old dilemma that is complicated by our technology. i plan to purchase the book!
Super amazing! Helpful and useful take-aways. I go to a lot of conferences and this is one of the best workshops I have ever been to!
Fantastic class! You are an awesome presenter!
Thanks so much, Maura. Your sessions were the best of the entire two-day conference!
I have never considered myself a stranger to organization but I really, genuinely have gained so much from Maura and her tactics.
Excellent presenter, very engaging, great vocal variety, great energy and use of examples, provided concrete tools and resources. Phenomenal presentation.
Thank you for the absolutely wonderful session you held for us this week. I had started to use some of the techniques from your book, and this session really made things click for me!
Very empowering! I learned so many ways to work smarter! Loved it!
Thank you for the great suggestions and frameworks for organization!
The workshop was great! After just 15 minutes of implementing what I learned, I already feel more productive and more relaxed!
Maura was absolutely wonderful!! Best time management presentation I have ever attended (and I've attend many!). She was engaging, entertaining, made data she presented usable.
One of your best speakers. Will be hiring her to present to our staff.
When I adopt the [Empowered Productivity ] System fully, I get so much more done. It's amazing!
Thanks for your class yesterday. I'm really excited about the next 90 days!
I've heard great things about the training you did here for my colleagues, and I'd love for you to come back and offer it to my department, too.
"Great presentation. Very informative!"
LOVED this training. Maura is wonderful. She shared so many great tips and strategies...I couldn't write fast enough. She has a fresh new way of looking at things. I was a little worried that it would be the same thing that I've already read about and had trouble implementing, but the training was incredibly beneficial.
I love your System! Now I feel more in control and confident. Also, after our training, staff emails dropped off considerably right away. Thanks again for this important and relevant work you're doing!
You've had a tremendous impact in my life with regard to time management.
"Empowered Productivity" was the best workshop I attended!
Moving from GTD to Empowered Productivity was like trading a rowboat for a jet ski. Maura's system is light, fast, elegant, and intuitive. And, unlike GTD, she shows you how to implement it so that you are off and running on day one. Training from RegainYourTime.com is the single most valuable investment I've made in professional development this year.
Excellent presentation!! Can't wait to finish the book and apply the methods.
I truly believe your presentation will shape the rest of my career. The past two days have been less stressful and I have felt incredibly productive. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
I have to admit that attending this seminar was probably one of the best investments of time that I have had the privilege of participating in.
