SPEAKING TOPICS

Time to Parent: Raising a Human, while Being a Human

Parenting is the biggest, hardest, and most important job in the world, andis the only one that doesn’t come with a job manual. Until now. Julie provides a revolutionary framework to guide parents in managing the conflicting priorities of the parenting years, while creating quality time with their kids and for themselves.  Based on her new book, TIME TO PARENT, Julie offers remarkably practical strategies to organize the seemingly infinite job of being a parent into a manageable set of responsibilities that are relevant from cradle to college. 

Making Work, Work: Practical Keys to Productivity

Today’s intense work environment requires brand new skills to focus on what’s most important, and get things done. Based on her book, NEVER CHECK EMAIL IN THE MORNING, Julie offers a cutting edge approach to boosting productivity, by focusing on managing energy and brainpower to get more out of the day. Audiences learn to prioritize with confidence, create the time to concentrate in a highly distractible environment, outsmart email and interruptions, and optimize time off to ensure peak performance.  

The Great Juggling Act: Creating Balance

Julie empowers audiences to create the balance in their life they desire, by working with their natural style, interests and goals.  Based on her best-selling book TIME MANAGEMENT FROM THE INSIDE OUT,  audiences first learn how to change their perception of time so that they can better manage it.   Julie then presents practical skills to connect daily tasks to big picture goals, track to-do's, structure the calendar and deal with surprises to get back on track every time life throws you curveballs.  

Time Leadership: Creating a Culture of Productivity

In this thought-provoking presentation, Julie helps managers and leaders see the role they play in creating a culture of productivity. By consciously developing norms around email, meetings, quiet time, interruptions and time off, good time leadership enables organizations to thrive.  Leaders learn to create an environment that brings out peak performance and efficiency in their human resources, and thereby meet company goals—such as innovation, staying ahead of the competition, and recruiting and retaining top talent.

Organizing from the Inside Out

Julie's approach to organizing is deeply human and uniquely effective. She teach audiences how to design a system based on their unique personality, needs and style, so that it is natural and easy to maintain.  Based on her internationally bestselling book ORGANIZING FROM THE INSIDE OUT,  and nearly 3 decades helping individuals organize their homes, offices, filing systems and spaces, audiences leave ready to custom design their own systems so they live, work, and relax in a way that recharges and fuels them.  

SHED: Decluttering Your Space, Time and Habits to Get Unstuck

Using her proprietary SHED formula, Julie guides audiences toward making room for change and growth by letting go of the obsolete in their spaces, schedules and habits. Based on the belief that noone lets go into a vacuum, Julie guides audiences in developing a theme for the next chapter of their lives, and treasure criteria for what will fuel them moving forward. This makes it easier to let go of the physical, schedule and habit clutter.  This talk is perfect for groups experiencing any form of change or transition, to be empowered to move forward as their most authentic, fully-engaged selves.
