Improve Profitability by Implementing Effective Filing Systems

​​​​​​​with Rubina Motta


Are you missing income because you’ve lost track of invoices?  Do you experience delayed revenues because you “DO NOT” have time to bill your customers?  Have your service standards suffered because you’ve misplaced important emails? Do you often find your employees waiting for you to make decisions or complete overdue tasks? 

Many business owners, managers, and business leaders find themselves overwhelmed by administrative tasks, shackled by increasing regulations and overawed by information overload.  Although most recognize that effective organization systems can help free up essential time they do not know where to start or how to break away from the day to day to make needed changes.   Paperwork has been voted the biggest burden for small businesses.

In this session, you will learn actionable principles and helpful tips from a renowned Professional Organizer and Productivity Consultant to help you develop a paper and electronic organization system that will help you reclaim your time, improve cash flow, profitability and improve your lifestyle.
