Workshops, Webinars and Masterclasses

Donna is passionate about helping people work smarter and create space for what's important.

She believes that we all deserve to have a fulfilling life where we can enjoy our work, maintain family time, pursue our hobbies, and follow our passions.

With that in mind, Donna offers a range public and private of Workshops, Webinars and Masterclasses on a variety of topics that can help you and your people shift your mindset, develop new skillsets, and build your toolkit. From 90-minute sessions to two-day getaways, we've got something for everyone. Our goal is to give you the tools you need to work smarter and create space for what's truly important.

Topics include (but are not limited to)

It’s a crime that people spend all day in back-to-back pointless meetings, and then come home, eat their dinner, to spend the rest of their evening catching up on email and their “real” work.

It’s about time we overcame overwhelm, took back control and focused on what’s important.

It’s not enough any more to do “to do lists” and other traditional time management strategies to run your life.

Neuroscience and other breakthroughs have shown that we need to pay more attention to the clock in our bodies, than the clock on the wall.

Based on her best-selling productivity series, It’s About Time, Donna brings the best of her knowledge to help people build adaptive capacity into their lives.

You’ll learn:

  • Why we have been led up a garden path when it comes to productivity (and how to get it right)

  • The 4 Types of Space we need to focus on to create capacity and how to leverage each

  • Strategies to develop a savings plan to take back time and spend it wisely

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent; it is the one most adaptable to change.”
Charles Darwin, British naturalist

In 2020 and 2021 the word “pivot” became the catch cry of those needing to respond to the changing working and living environment.

Some were successful, and some struggled.  What was the difference?  It was an individual’s, or organisation’s adaptive capacity that sorted the wheat from the chaff.

Whether you lead an organisation, a team or yourself, optimising your adaptive capacity will give you a competitive advantage.

You’ll learn:

  • Why creating space to think (no really think) is the key to managing and taking advantage of changing circumstances

  • The 4 Types of Capacity and the impact of each on our ability to be productive and effective

  • Strategies to build your adaptive capacity to react faster and better than your competition

We have to stop being 100% on 100% of the time.  We can actually achieve more if we do less.

More! More! More!

Faster! Faster! Faster!

We’ve been told that the successful people in life are those that are willing to go longer and harder than others.

And yet, some of the most successful people in the world have shown that extreme effort doesn’t always yield extreme results.

Join Donna as she shows time and time again that success is about effort in the right place, and the right time and at just the right level.  That going hard and being “on” all the time is likely being detrimental to what you are wanting to achieve.

You’ll learn:

  • Why 100% on 100% of the time is making you less productive (and how to get it right)

  • How sportspeople, entertainers and inventors know why having a 15% buffer helps them be more successful

  • Techniques to help you take back 15% right now, and give yourself a room to breathe

It’s not WHAT you do, it’s WHEN you do it.

Get more done with your day by avoiding common productivity traps.

Donna draws on research from neuroscience, energy flow and the body’s natural rhythms, to reveal how to divide the workday into 2-hour blocks in line with the level of intensity and impact required.

Learn how to:

  • Recognise the habits holding you back (and how to rewire them)

  • Maximise your first 2 hours and set yourself up for daily success

  • Build on your body’s strengths for better performance

  • Track your patterns and create a personalised workflow

  • Discover the optimum time of day for new business, meetings, emails, projects and more.

The way you plan your day is the key to your productivity and Donna shows you how to do great work, consistently.
