In this issue we look at how to become a more confident public speaker; how to put together a CV that will impress prospective employers and direct you to a site where you can access the best business blogs.

Last Word...

Do you have a bad email habit? By that, I mean do you waste time interrupting what you are doing to constantly check what’s in your inbox? You’d be surprised how much time you can waste doing this. Instead why don’t you set yourself some rules:

Rule 1 – Only check your inbox every couple of hours (unless, of course, you’re waiting for something urgent).

Rule 2 - When you do settle down to check your inbox, answer as many of the emails as you can – don’t just read them and then decide to deal with them later. This means you’re duplicating work.

Rule 3 - Don’t leave unanswered emails in your inbox. Set up properly named folders and if you can’t answer an email immediately put it in the appropriate folder.

Rule 4 - If your computer ‘pings’ each time an email arrives, turn the sound off so that it doesn’t distract you.

I hope you find these tips help to make your working day more productive.Until next time...
