Productivity Guru David Allen to Visit India

Productivity Guru and the world’s leading authority on personal and organisational productivity, David Allen, will be visiting India for the very first time on the 27th and 28th of November 2015. During his maiden visit to India, David Allen will launch the 2015 edition of his international bestseller ‘GTD: the Art of Stress-Free Productivity.’ As part of his India tour he will also address CXOs and HR professionals at the MTHR (More Than HR) Global Breakfast event at Bangalore. David Allen is on a tour of different countries and is currently in Europe from where he will head to the Middle East after which he will visit India followed by his last stop in Russia.

Announcing the India Visit of David Allen, Mohammed Arif Vakil, Director & Master Trainer at Calm Achiever said, “GTD is a global movement with practitioners all around the world, including India. GTD is especially relevant in India today as more people in India are becoming knowledge workers. We are living in a hyper connected world, and are constantly bombarded with information from all sides. Not only is this creating distraction & causing us to procrastinate, it is also adding a phenomenal amount of stress to our busy lives. GTD by David Allen is an extraordinary methodology for stress-free performance. David’s premise is simple: our productivity is directly proportional to our ability to relax. Only when our minds are clear and our thoughts are organized can we achieve effective results and unleash our creative potential.”

Much more than a set of tips for time management and organisation, GTD is a total work-life management system that transforms overwhelm into an integrated system of stress-free productivity. GTD is a reliable framework to help us manage the information overload we face, so that we can deliver on our commitments effectively. GTD has helped several thousands of people around the world to sharpen their focus, make progress without getting stressed, manage commitments effectively, have a clear mind for creativity and Work-Life balance, he added.
