Nicole Bandes, Productivity SpeakerAs a productivity speaker, Nicole Bandes, aka “The Productivity Expert”, has inspired and motivated 1000’s of overwhelmed executives and business leaders to find and Own The Zone so they can get more done, faster, easier and with less stress. Nicole has spent over 20 years studying personal productivity and time management strategies only to find that most of it really doesn’t work! Attempting to juggle the many aspects of her own successful business and family life, Nicole put her degree in Psychology and extensive background in personal development and coaching to work and went on a mission to uncover why these strategies were failing.  Fortunately, she discovered the secret formula and  was able to begin teaching her methods to others while living a healthy, “balanced” life before tragedy struck and her life was changed forever.

In her workshops and keynotes, Nicole shares her story to  motivate the audience into realizing, There’s NO Time Like The Present to begin to manage your time.

lori_weitersI recently attended an event where Nicole was one of the featured speakers. Not only was the information she shared valuable to me personally and professionally, her animated presentation style was refreshing! I look forward to attending another one of her sessions in the future.

It was a great talk and I enjoyed bringing home what I learned to my husband.

nikki_bernsteinI loved your class. You put the information together in a way that made sense and brought awareness to my “busyness”. I have finally found saying “no” to be empowering and self-respecting. I am enjoying my new found freedom. Of course, I wish I could say yes to everyone for everything, but there are not enough hours in the day.

Since I am in the process of a re-invention and don’t want to lose too many minutes with my growing family, your seminar brought focus to my future. Thanks again!
