Lunch and Learn Series Schedule: 

August 24, 2017 — The Secret to Winning New Clients, presented by Diana Stepleton of Ruby Receptionists. Everyone wants to win more business… but how? The answer is as close as your phone! Join customer service specialists Ruby Receptionists for a free webinar on how to WOW your callers and clients, turning rings into relationships.

September 7, 2017   Clearing Clutter: Tuning in to Time, Space and Mind, presented by Niki Irish and Yvette Mitchell, senior counselors, D.C. Bar Lawyer Assistance Program. In today's society, life can feel like it is moving at lightning speed. As daily demands, obligations and responsibilities feel more and more overwhelming, it becomes easy to avoid taking action on tasks such as keeping up with client emails, organizing files, and paying attention to your own mental health. While avoidance may offer temporary relief, it can also spiral into increased feelings of anxiety, disorganization, and stress. If you have found yourself in this position, you are not alone! Come discover techniques to help manage daily physical and mental clutter so that you can improve productivity and decrease stress. In this session, you will learn how to become more efficient and productive by better managing your: 

  • Time; 
  • Physical space/work environment; and 
  • Brain space.

This session will help you take the first steps towards reducing tension and increasing peace of mind by offering practical tools that you may incorporate into your professional and personal life (and ultimately help you to improve your bottom line!). Bring your questions and join us for this Lunch and Learn.
