Personal Planning

Price: €50 per hour

Details: We all spend a lot of time planning our business.  But do you put the same effort into planning your life be that professional or personal. Even when we do have tools (calendars, to do lists etc) to help us are they linked and all working in the same direction. Interestingly over the years I have found that many of the same methods we use in business can be used to help us put structure around our lives and help bring better balance between work and life while delivering better results in both.  

Available to both individuals and companies.
