Claire Burge is described as part chaos, part rocket fuel. She is a senior member of the Get Organised team – and she decided to have an email free period as an experiment and see if she was able to conduct business and be more productive. She wanted to gain insight and answers to the following:

  1. Am I really spending my time as productively as I could?
  2. Am I doing the necessary things in business to grow my client base or am I stuck inside my inbox?

“As the conversation unfolded in my ‘no email experiment’ post, many people admitted to not being able to just drop email as it would result in business loss or employment loss. This is expected because we have become so reliant on email to conduct business.

Here I offer 16 quick ways to reduce your email volume (read them here)” says Claire
