Taming the E-mail Beast: Key Strategies for Managing Your E-mail Overload  

Thursday, January 24, 2019 | Main webinar at 10 a.m. ET - breakout session at 1 p.m. or 3:30 p.m. ET | $99 per person with $20 discount for NFPA members with code

Popular e-mail management speaker and author, Randy Dean, MBA, The E-mail Sanity Expert®, is leading a new set of webinars on his most popular program, Taming the E-mail Beast. If your inbox is “driving you crazy” and you’d like tips for better e-mail management and prioritization, this program is for you.

Randy is doing something pretty interesting that day – he is holding three different sessions – one at 10:00 a.m. Eastern that is a 2-hour intensive for both Outlook and Gmail users followed by a session 75 minutes at 1 p.m. Eastern specifically for Outlook users OR one for 75 minutes at 3:30 p.m. Eastern specifically for Gmail users.  When you pay for the program, Randy will contact you personally to see which session you prefer and then get you the necessary webinar log in information.  (CAN’T MAKE THE DATE?  No worries – these programs will all be recording, and ALL ATTENDEES will be given replay access to ALL THREE PROGRAMS.)  Yes, that means after the live program, you will get access to the replays also, so that you can truly develop your e-mail management skill set.

AND, Randy is also going to add on a replay of last year’s full webinar program on Taming the E-mail Etiquette Beast – a program all about better e-mail composition and design for better communications AND also a PDF e-book copy of his Amazon.com bestseller, Taming the E-mail Beast. 

The total value of this program is more than $200, but he is offering it for only $99 right now, and as an NFPA member, if you use the code Paralegal2019 at checkout, you will get an additional $20 off your purchase price.


**This is single per-person pricing.  If you have a large group that you would like to have attend this session, please contact Randy directly at randy@randalldean.com for discounted per-person group pricing options.
