Ticket Price Includes: a light lunch and Graham Allcott’s book, “How to be a Productivity Ninja”

What you’ll learn


  • Learn to overcome ‘information overload’ and stress
  • Learn the 4 essential habits of personal productivity and how you can embed these in what you do
  • Learn key productivity theories that work – from Graham Allcott’s book and other leading productivity thinkers
