Lunch and Learn: The Easiest Ways To Increase Productivity – And Profitability – In Your Firm

March 26, 2020

Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, the D.C. Bar has decided to take precautionary measures to protect our members, our staff, and the community we serve. As of March 16, 2020 key Bar services, including this program, will only be available online via videoconference.

Why spend ten hours at work each day if your goal is to bill five? You shouldn’t have to spend this much time at the office to reach your goals. During this program we will discuss what to do differently to get each day off to the best possible start, which activities to focus on first, and how to restructure each day to make sure that you achieve your goals. You’ll learn how to boost productivity for you and your team, increase the profitability of your firm, and still have time for a personal life.
