Information Overload 


"In the period ahead of us, more important than advances in computer design will be the advances we can make in our understanding of human information processing - of thinking, problem solving, and decision making..."

Herbert Simon, Economics Nobel-prize winner


Whatever level you’re at, you’re now receiving and processing new inputs and information in different ways to your past work practices. You have probably experienced an exponential increase in the number of phone calls, e-mails, text/SMS messages, updates, news clips, websites and other technology-driven inputs that you receive.


E-mail and information overload, sometimes known as ‘Infomania’, has become a major problem, costing thousands of dollars in lower productivity, hampered innovation and creativity, and lessening of work-life balance. Many busy professionals report feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, stressed and highly unproductive as the result of the huge volumes of information they receive, the interruption their arrival frequently causes and the sense of urgency that often accompanies them.


This fast-paced, dynamic presentation covers;

·         defining ‘information overload’

·         past history and the trends for the future

·         the impact and effects of e-mail & information overload

·         practical solutions for managing your overload

·         an action plan to put into place right away


Any busy professional who would like to gain greater control of the huge volumes of e-mail and information they receive every day (both at work and at home) will benefit from participating in this workshop.
