Code: ESC/20/20 Managing Your Time Effectively (EVENT FULL)

Time pressures impact our work and personal lives as we aim to achieve higher levels of performance with less resource (time) to achieve it. The ability to manage time is an essential skill for effective people. Time management is not about cramming more work into your day, it is about doing better work, with less stress and knowing you have achieved what you set out to do.
