According to Inc. magazine, we spend an average of 75 seconds on a task before we're interrupted. Even more than external factors, we're often forced to switch between various systems, calendars and software to get our work done. Is there a simpler way to be efficient and effective? In this session, you'll learn how to implement a productivity tool called Trello that the speaker uses with both small practices and Am Law 100 firms.


  • Identify existing bottlenecks and constraints that limit your effectiveness.
  • Identify a system that will quickly streamline workflows and team communication.
  • Outline how to implement Trello, a productivity tool, that will maximize the output of both you and your practice area teams.
