IT Company Gains Insight Into Effective Time Management

We were very impressed… everyone gained considerable insight to effective time management and personal planning techniques… applicable to many different businesses and situations. I have no hesitation in recommending Robyn to any company… In particular, her ability to help staff interact and understand each other’s viewpoints we have found invaluable.

Professional Approach Reinforces Time Management Principles

Following a number of very positive reference checks we invited Robyn Pearce to speak as part of the ‘Practice Support Staff’ stream of our National Conference. She was a delight to deal with, and very professional in her approach at all times.

She took the time to research our company as well as the audience that would be attending her sessions, prior to the conference, so that she could use practical examples the attendees could relate to. This was the first time we had used an external presenter for this stream and the feedback has been very encouraging.

Specific Personalised Advice Benefits Group

Robyn gave much more than the professional information imparted in this kind of session. She engaged directly with each of the participants’ major concerns and provided helpful advice that was also relevant to the needs of the whole group. … I recommend her unreservedly to other organisations.

They’re ‘screaming for more’!

Thanks for your wonderful presentation. I’ve had a lot of positive feedback from our staff, and they can be a tough audience. They’re ‘screaming for more’!

 L.J. Hooker Predicts Great Success In Us

Your down-to-earth common sense certainly hit home to a lot of people, and the feedback was very good.
I would particularly like to thank you for the time you took in researching L.J. Hooker, your interest in our L.J. Hooker specific computer programme, and your attitude to the engagement.

As you know only too well, time management in the real estate industry is a nightmare, and every little success helps. I have no doubt there will be far greater than ‘little’ successes recorded following your session.

5 Stars For Time Management Course

Robyn, in light of this morning’s session (and comments about short emails!) I could leave it there but I won’t. I’ve “been around” long enough to be a bit ho-hum about “organise yourself” seminars. I have been to a couple of time management seminars, and read books and listened to tapes on the topic so I “agonised” (procrastinated!) for some time before enrolling – I also thought it possible I might be gone after morning tea!

As you know I didn’t leave, and I enjoyed your session. More than that, it was money and time well spent. Unusual for me I gave the seminar 5 stars for everything. You are very relaxed, competent and comfortable with your subject and you certainly got a bunch of “reserved accountants” participating very well.

I hope to sustain and build on the pointers, processes and tips that came out of the session. All I need is to adopt 20% and I’ll get 80% benefit – right!

Simple Practical Action Steps For Work Life Balance

We’ve had great feedback since your last session with the NZ Institute of Chartered Accountants. Your pragmatism is so appealing. You gave us simple things to focus on that don’t require a whole new regime of behaviour. It was also great that you made it relevant to whole of life – simple, practical actions not just for work, but also our precious leisure time.

‘My secretary and I have had many discussions since that night. She’s reading ‘Getting A Grip on Time’ on the bus – keeps coming in to work and quoting bits to me! What we both like, just like your speech, is how easy it is to read and take in, and so very down to earth. It leaves the reader feeling confident that the suggestions are easy to do and motivated to get into action.

Improved Focus And Concentration After Time Management Course

Since your time management course our managers have found that they can now focus better. Your tips on managing email, how to concentrate on the task at hand, and how to effectively plan first thing in the day have helped them prevent time being eaten away. Also, regular use of the week planner at the beginning of the week helps them manage their many daily ‘spinning plates’.

The seminar on delegation has helped their relationship with staff, and improved the atmosphere in the office.

Jam-packed Personalised Seminar Very Effective

Robyn spoke to four of my Academy groups in the space of 11 days. I was really, really impressed, not only with her presentation style and the great interactivity, empathy and rapport that she generated with the groups, but also that the four meetings were absolutely jam-packed with good ideas and great action points for my members. I feel very confident that they’ll all find ways of saving time to be more effective in their businesses.

The most remarkable thing to me was that each of the four meetings of 3 & ½ hours was completely different to the others, even though following the same agenda. Lots of original thought, relevant anecdotes, and everyone really enjoyed the sessions.

Awesome says Law Clerk, Bell Gully

I just thought I’d spend a few minutes in the Proactive/Value-adding quadrant and let you know how informative and helpful your seminar for us law clerks here last week was. I particularly enjoyed your professional and easy-going presentation style and your ability to communicate concepts clearly! It was awesome.
