Business Booking Details

Payment Of Invoices

For bookings from established businesses, we do not require payment at the point of booking.

We will send you an invoice which you can submit to your accounts payable system.

Purchase Orders

If your employer uses a purchase order (P.O.) system to manage supplier invoices that is no problem.

  • If you already have a P.O. number when booking add it to the PO number box on the booking form, and we will include it on your invoice.
  • If you need an invoice to generate a P.O. number in your accounts system, please book the course as normal and add a note in the PO number box – to be provided
  • We will send you an invoice (without a P.O.) which you can use to generate a P.O..
  • We will then re-issue your invoice with your P.O. included when you provide us with it


You are not able to pay directly online at the time of booking, we issue an invoice for all bookings.

We accept payment either via direct bank transfer or card

Our invoices contain our bank details if you would like to pay by bank transfer and there is also information on how to pay by card.

Please note, if you are using a business card there is a surcharge of 2% to cover the payment processing charges.

Over the two days of this course, you will have the opportunity to explore in-depth how you use your time currently, how to make better use of your time and to investigate and apply what you’ve learned to produce a detailed plan for you to implement when you return to work.

There is lots of time to consider how the various techniques might work for you, and in your work environment, and to also share ideas with other participants as well as learning from your experienced trainer.

Please click on the sections below to see more detail about this course. Please note that the exact format of the course will be customised in order to focus on delegates’ biggest time management stumbling blocks.

The first day of this course focuses on understanding everyone’s particular problems and how these problems can be systematically addressed.

  • The paradox – we cannot manage time so what do we need to manage
  • Compare a typical week with an ideal week
  • Your values and their impact on your time
  • Why is it that we “lose” time, what are our time vampires and how can we deal with them?
  • Prioritising and other task management techniques (including the Eisenhower matrix) and focusing on the important before it becomes urgent
  • The 4 D’s (Do, Defer, Delete, Delegate) and how to delegate effectively
  • Overcoming procrastination and other self-defeating behaviours
  • Understanding and working with your natural energy levels to achieve results
  • Reducing meeting time and making your meetings more productive

Day 2 of this course is where ‘the rubber hits the road’.

Having looked at the theory of prioritisation on day 1, we start day 2 by looking at how this can be put into practice. This includes role-playing in practical scenarios to practise using those techniques.

We then look at dealing with other people and how to manage them so that you can deliver your best work.

We finish Day 2 with a review and also create individual action plans looking at how you will implement what you have learned on your return to work.

Key topics covered include:

  • Managing the expectations of others and increasing your confidence in dealing with them
    1. Discussing your workload and priorities with your manager.
      • Evaluating how much work you truly have to do and how to discuss this with your manager
    2. Saying no (or not yet…)
      • Giving yourself the time to consider the implications of requests for additions to your workload before committing yourself
  • Hints and tips for planning and getting more out of your day
  • Setting goals and objectives, and a plan to achieve them
  • Breaking down tasks to make them more manageable
  • Keeping track of your tasks and your progress – The value of lists
  • Maintaining your motivation
  • Taking time to reflect, recharge and refocus
  • Why breaks and changes in focus can cause you to be more productive
  • Producing your action plan
  • Concrete steps that you can implement straight away when you get back to work to get the maximum benefit from what you’ve learned
