Invitation - effective e-mail seminars

I know that dealing with information overload and working effectively with collaborative technologies such as e-mail, instant messaging and groupware continue to be a problem for people in many organisations. So I wasn't surprised that as a result of my posting yesterday on mastering e-mail overload I received a request from an organisation to run a lunch time briefing session for staff on this subject.

I would like to take this opportunity to extend an invitation to any other organisations out there to contact me (details can be found on my Website) if you would like a short briefing to your staff on effective e-mail or just about any other workplace technology issue you can think of.

Some other ideas for briefings include:

  • Online customer service
  • Writing for the Web or Intranets
  • Empowering customers with technology
  • Instant messaging benefits
  • Getting on with groupware
  • Blogging and wikis for business (also see details of my upcoming seminar in Canberra)
  • Teleconferencing and videoconferencing best practices
  • Managing remote staff and virtual teams
  • The pros and cons of being always on, always connected
  • Information security essentials for staff
As I'm always up for a challenge, if you have another idea for a briefing session just let me know!


  1. Dumb question time, but there doesn't seem to be anything about your e-mail seminars on your main website.

  2. Nice to hear from you, Jack.

    There is no such thing as a dumb question. You won't find information on seminars on my main Website yet, but you will find my contact details and other information about my consulting business plus some articles to download.

    At the moment I'm running seminars by request and on just about any KM or IT management issue people can suggest - that is I'll come to you and talk about what you want! (Yes, in real time - unfortunately Webminars haven't really hit if off downunder)

    Details of my presentation next week on the use of blogs and wikis for trainers can be found via this post.

    BTW From your profile I found that you're involved with the KM community in Chicago (US). You might like to have a look over at what we're doing in the NSW KM Forum, based out of Sydney, Australia.
