Take Back Your Time 
Five Proven Ways to Increase Consultant Productivity
 With Lynn Coffman and Michael Valentine, Co-Founding
Principals of Coffman Valentine & Associates, Inc.
Thursday, June 10, Mimi's Café, Irvine, 7:00 to 9:00 a.m.
Today's competiveness for consultants lies in part in reducing cycle times across all business functions. It is not a matter of simply working faster. It is doing the right things at the right time in the best way. "Fast Flexible and Focused” productivity for business results is the name of the game. It's time to utilize all of your resources to minimize waste in all your activities and repurpose the recovered time to the key functions that drive toward business success.

If you are like most consultants, you are constantly working to find the right balance between the time spent in the four demands on your time:

  • Marketing your offerings
  • Selling your services
  • Delivering your services
  • Administering your business

For the solution, join us on Thursday, June 10, as Lynn Coffman and Michal Valentine, principals of Coffman Valentine & Associates, Inc., show us their "Lean Principles for Efficiency, Effectiveness and Excellence." They will identify the five tools you have at your disposal and show you how these integrate into a holistic approach to finally gaining control over your work processes.

Look forward to an entertaining, informative and interactive session on June 10. This will be a learning experience not to be missed regardless of your specialty and also an opportunity for you to network with consultants and other self-employed professionals in the Greater Orange County area
