I engaged Bill to speak to our department on a Saturday morning following a full day departmental retreat the day before. Having 50+ attorneys in a conference room on such a Saturday morning could have been a big mistake – but Bill won us all over. In fact, people thanked me for arranging the seminar and continue to do so. Several weeks later many of us continue to implement the processes and tips Bill taught us and we are discussing the results with enthusiasm which is encouraging more and more of us to implement even more organization and time-management tools. The presentation was not only informative and enlightening but also very, very entertaining. Bill makes what could be a dry subject very approachable, and he has a way of making you recognize flaws and bad habits with humor so the end result is uplifting rather than deflating. I know many of us are already happier and less-stressed with our practices.
We asked Bill to speak to the lawyers at our 150-attorney firm, and he was a big hit. We had more attendees than at any other program in recent memory, and afterwards the reviews were glowing. Personally, I found Bill’s presentation first-rate, in terms of both content and style. As a practicing lawyer and the chair of our firm’s Executive Committee, I am constantly being pulled in different directions. Accordingly, I especially enjoyed hearing Bill’s practical advice on how to minimize distractions and to take control of my schedule. In an era when interruptions, electronic and otherwise, are becoming harder to ignore, Bill’s step-by step approach to regaining control of our professional lives could not have come at a better time for us at Wiggin and Dana.
Bill and his co-presenters are popular speakers who deliver excellent content that helps our members grow and better manage their time and their law practices overall. They’re entertaining presenters who hold our audience’s attention and regularly get high scores on their evaluations. That’s why they’ve been presenting their Time Management program for us every year since 2013.
Bill Jawitz’s Productivity Bootcamp was excellent. It struck the perfect balance between providing practical tools for organizing and prioritizing work on the one hand, and establishing a clear framework for understanding how increased productivity really happens on the other. Bill is a very strong and engaging presenter. His extensive knowledge of what our lawyers face on a day-to-day basis was clearly evident. His use of creative visuals, well-organized materials, and even some magic tricks kept our attorneys totally engaged throughout the entire 90-minute presentation. Both as individuals and in teams, our department of 34 lawyers is beginning to see tangible benefits in improved efficiency. This was well worth the time!
Bill is among the most gifted presenters I’ve encountered in my thirty years of practice. He clearly and engagingly presents compelling content that led me to think about where and how I could become even better at managing my time. From simple, concrete “tips” to bigger picture ways of looking at how the work flows through my practice with my support staff, I learned a tremendous amount. I recommend his training to any attorney who wants to become more efficient and effective.
