StartUp Weekend NB – The Silver Economy will be running from Friday April 28th to April 30th.

Looking to improve your productivity? Our next event in our Leadership Series is coming up on May 3 at noon and focuses on Prioritizing for Productivity. Leaders never advance to a point where they no longer need to prioritize. There are always tasks to accomplish, meetings to facilitate, reports to write, emails to send, presentations to prepare, family responsibilities to juggle, projects to manage and events to attend. All of these activities require prioritization to ensure the most important work is accomplished. Join us as we rethink and refocus our priorities to ensure greater personal productivity.
