"Great presentation. Very informative!"
This was a great perspective on time management. I will be discussing with my department and utilizing what I learned.
Thanks so much, Maura. Your sessions were the best of the entire two-day conference!
Thanks for changing my life in very positive ways. Your information has proven to be valuable for me. I've cleaned the clutter of "notes" from my life, and now everything is organized and I get reminders at the appropriate times. BIG difference! I'm actually getting more done, and feel more in control. Thanks for everything.
I wanted to say thank you. Your presentation was excellent and so are your ideas.
This was a spectacular presentation - very applicable and informative, and delivered in a fun, energetic manner.
Loved! This will be very useful and can't wait to read the book. Thank you!
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.
"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."
"Empowered Productivity" was the best workshop I attended!
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 was not a proponent of social media until I heard your presentation. Thanks for the education!
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!
Thanks for your class yesterday. I'm really excited about the next 90 days!
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.
One of your best speakers. Will be hiring her to present to our staff.
Maura empowered me with a flexible system that keeps me productive and on track daily. I'm forever grateful!
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!
Your talk was the highlight of the conference for me!
"Great session, even for us old folks!"
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.
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.
This speaker was my favorite of the whole session!
Very empowering! I learned so many ways to work smarter! Loved it!
I cleaned up my inbox, and honestly HAVE seen a reduction in stress level during my day.
Thanks so much, Maura. Your sessions were the best of the entire two-day conference.
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.
Wish we had more "time" for this piece.
Very engaging speaker. Very well presented.
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!
Funny, informative, captivating!
Excellent! Thank you! I really needed this!
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!
Engaging presenter + good core concepts & premise.
Excellent presenter, very engaging, great vocal variety, great energy and use of examples, provided concrete tools and resources. Phenomenal presentation.
I have never considered myself a stranger to organization but I really, genuinely have gained so much from Maura and her tactics.
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.
I can't wait to share what I learned with the rest of my department! Thank you!
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!
You've had a tremendous impact in my life with regard to time management.
Helpful and engaging!
This class was amazing! Great insights and topics were extremely relevant to managing my day.
Fantastic class! You are an awesome presenter!
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 found your workshop incredibly helpful! Thank you! I am amazed how energized and organized I now am!
Excellent presentation!! Can't wait to finish the book and apply the methods.
I thought the presentation was great, and Maura was very engaging.
Maura is inspiring, informative, fantastic!
[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.
The workshop was great! After just 15 minutes of implementing what I learned, I already feel more productive and more relaxed!
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!
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.
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.
Fantastic actionable ideas to work through “information overload”.
Maura was great. Excellent speaker. Excellent content. Tangible tips. Can take this back immediately and apply it.
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!
We have had a LOT of speakers over the years, and you were definitely among the best!
Great presentation. I appreciated the fresh approach to this age-old dilemma that is complicated by our technology. i plan to purchase the book!
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!
Thank you for the great suggestions and frameworks for organization!
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.
This was fantastic. I really hope to be able to apply Maura's suggestions to my daily routines.
You taught me how to choose what I do with my time, instead of being constantly reactive. Soooooo liberating! Thank you!
When I adopt the [Empowered Productivity ] System fully, I get so much more done. It's amazing!
I think this meeting will go down in history as one of the best ever for us! Our attendees LOVED, LOVED, LOVED you!!
