Distractions are everywhere – particularly in our tech-saturated world. Smartphones alone are a huge distraction in this modern age – it’s estimated that we pick up our phones an average of 85 times per day.

How do we limit the tech and other distractions that prevent us from being productive, delivering our work and progressing faster in our careers.

In this session we will:

  • Help you recognise workspace distractions
  • Share strategies to help avoid distraction and deliver work more efficiently
  • Discuss the physical and mental benefits of a more focused and purposeful approach in our work routines

Louise is a training manager at Origin Energy and is a self-confessed word nerd who happens to love crafting content. Delivering workplace learning allows her to do this in a range of media, working with different people and picking up a lot of random facts about different industries along the way.

Commencing with Ford Motor Company, she enjoyed a brief interlude as a management consultant with a Ford joint venture in Europe, then pivoted to lead learning and development initiatives in sectors such as tertiary education, rail and now energy. Louse lives in Melbourne with her husband, two sons and recently acquired rescue beagle. She escapes the mayhem by going for a run and singing with a choir.
