Speech Topics

Mastering Your To-Do List TM

To-do lists have been with us since the earliest days of humankind. Everyone has one, in one form or another. In this riveting session, mega-author and professional speaker Jeff Davidson discusses how to master your daily to-do list, how to construct it, what it should contain, what it should not contain, how to transfer what’s left to the next day, and, most important, the psychological strokes you need to give yourself for accomplishing the items on your to-do list.

If you’re like most career professionals, you face the unrelenting burden of having to handle one thing after another and of attempting interruption management on the fly. As a result of attending this session, you’ll feel more at ease and much more confident in tackling what needs to be done.

Managing Information and Communication Overload®

Data, data everywhere but not a thought to think! Does too much paper, too much reading, and too much with which to keep pace diminish your enjoyment of life? If so, go from glut to gain. Learn how to win with information and not be inundated by it, and to manage interruptions rather than be overwhelmed by them. Discover how to become your own information highway, to use information for maximum gain, and to keep the din at a manageable level so you can spend more time doing the things you enjoy. This program is for organizations whose managers and staff members face too many items competing for their time and attention, and offers essential tools for continual improvement.

Interruption Management TM

With each passing day, career professionals everywhere are being interrupted on a more frequent basis. This results in less focus and concentration, reduced productivity, higher anxiety, and ultimately, decreased profitability. In this eye-opening presentation, Jeff Davidson paints a vivid portrait of how business and society arrived at this point and why this situation will becoming immeasurably worse if we do not take action. Most importantly, he offers specific steps we can take to manage interruptions, keep them at a reasonable level, and consistently maintain high productivity.

Interruption Management is a program that many employees and organizations want and need to hear, and it will enable leaders, managers, and executives to be at their best, enjoy the fruits of higher productivity, and still have a life after work. Don’t let your group go another day without scheduling this essential presentation. As a result of attending this program, your group members will feel more in control, be more aware of their time, get more done, leave at the end of day with more energy, and be better prepared the next day to do it all again.

Managing the Pace With Grace®

Is today’s typical working American overworked or underworked, energetic or lazy? The best answer is, “none of the above.” The root of the time-pressure we feel and the leisure we lack is not “too much work.” There are larger, more basic, converging issues. We can handle longer hours; it’s endless interruptions on top of everything else competing for our attention that leaves us feeling overwhelmed.

Once you are overwhelmed, feeling overworked can quickly follow. You can, however, maintain the pace with grace — even under pressure! This program is action-packed. Jeff lays out Breathing Space strategies and techniques for effectiveness that anyone can master. For any organization seeking highest-level, ongoing education.

Achieving Work Life Balance

Wasn’t technology supposed to make us ultra-efficient? As the pace of life accelerates, people everywhere are scrambling to find effective solutions to the constant time pressure they face. As the only individual on earth designated by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office as “The Work-Life Balance Expert®” Jeff Davidson delivers a captivating presentation to your audience members that will leave them supercharged.

Jeff defines work-life balance as the ability to have a sense of control and to be productive and competitive at work while maintaining a happy, healthy home-life with sufficient leisure. “It is attaining focus and awareness despite seemingly endless tasks and activities competing for your time and attention.” He offers specific, proven ways to stay productive and competitive, yet remain balanced and happy.

Jeff addresses pressing issues such as the quest for quiet, over-reliance on personal technology, interruptions and distractions, and reclaiming your spaces. Attendees will gain many benefits from attending the session, but most important will be energized to take what they’ve learned back to the job.
