What attendees said about this course:

“I signed up for the Time Management course as I do sometimes struggle with working out priorities, an ever-increasing to-do list and procrastination (!) and hoped to pick up some tips and ideas from others about managing my day better. A lot of my job feels like ‘fire fighting’ and reacting, so longer pieces of work, reading reports, filing etc do often take the back burner. Eileen was an excellent tutor, giving personal experience and that of previous course attendees, and we were all encouraged to participate, challenge and share.”
