Mark Rechner

“The greatest single distraction in a work environment can be email. David was able to transform the way our office used email by putting in place some simple but effective procedures and disciplines where we now use email as the most effective tool in the office.”

“The way I conduct my day has been transformed. I focus on the high priority task, ensure that meetings I organise and/or attend have agendas and durations that are relevant as opposed to a default time. This alone shows respect for my time and others. I realised it is not about finding more time in my day it is about been more efficient and effective with my time. This is the philosophy and skills that David Shirley’s Time & Technology workshop has introduced to me. I feel my operational efficiency has increase by 35%.“

“David facilitated Time Management workshops at ASX. He presented what can be a somewhat dry topic in a fun and practical way. Learners were able to walk away with new tools to use to increase their productivity.”

“It’s not very often that training transforms the way you work, but the Time & Technology workshops have completely changed my behaviour and made me far more effective at work. I would definitely recommend it to anyone in a high pressure and time sensitive environment.”

Kath Pearson

“Over the past few years I have engaged with IT specialists and attended organisational workshops, but continued to be frustrated with my limited ability to communicate through technology due to the lack of understanding of the skills required to manage time efficiently and effectively. None has compared to the ease of communication and education provided by David Shirley’s Time and Technology coaching. David assigned me with the tools and knowledge to approach management of technology with a sense of simplicity, resulting in an immediate transformation in my ability to successfully organise emails, web design and social media relations. He was sensitive to my level of competency and made it all so uncomplicated. His patience is a key attribute in his capacity to install the necessary skills for a successful outcome. David made it seem all so easy, after years of complexity. I would highly recommend David Shirley’s one-on-one on coaching. The time he has saved for me on a daily basis has changed the way I approach my business. Thanks Mr Shirley.”

“Organisations provide ever changing technology for communication and document management. It was my experience that there was little guidance for busy executives in how to get the most out of this technology. I worked with David on a one on one basis to understand how to best utilise tools I had available for example in document editing, review and management as well as the way I managed my business day planning, prioritising tasks, managing and filing emails etc. Working one on one allowed me to focus on my own individual requirements, especially how to work when mobile, and to be shown therefore allowing me to use the learning immediately. I have established permanent habits and this was highly valuable training.”
