★ The Spark Featuring Keynote Ashley Whillans

In this talk, author and Harvard Business School professor Ashley Whillans will share proven strategies for improving “time affluence” productivity and happiness, even for the busiest among us. The techniques Whillans provides will free up seconds, minutes, and hours that, over the long term, become weeks and months that you can reinvest in positive, productive, and healthy activities. The science-based strategies Whillans presents will help you make the shift to time-smart living and build a more productive and fulfilling professional life and happier personal life. Prof. Whillans will also lead session participants through two interactive activities.

 After attending this keynote, participants will be able to: 

• List the common causes and impacts of “time poverty” on wellbeing and productivity

• Discuss tools for managing work demands and creating “time affluence”

• Explain the benefits and challenges of prioritizing the important and the urgent and leveraging the strategic power of saying “no” to increase impact

• Recognize the importance of three strategies to improving time affluence and happiness: finding time, funding time, and reframing time
