Speaker:  Rubina Motta

Are you missing income because you’ve lost track of invoices?  Do you experience delayed revenues because you “DO NOT” have time to bill your customers?  Have your service standards suffered because you’ve misplaced important emails? Do you often find your employees waiting for you to make decisions or complete overdue tasks?

Many business owners, managers, and business leaders find themselves overwhelmed by administrative tasks, shackled by increasing regulations and overawed by information overload.  Although most recognize that effective organization systems can help free up essential time they do not know where to start or how to break away from the day to day to make needed changes.   Paperwork has been voted the biggest burden for small businesses.

In this session, you will learn actionable principles and helpful tips from a renowned Professional Organizer and Productivity Consultant to help you develop a paper and electronic organization system that will help you reclaim your time, improve cash flow, profitability and improve your lifestyle.



  1. The Wall Street Journal reports that the average U.S. executive wastes six weeks per year retrieving misplaced information from messy desks and files.  For an executive earning $75,000 a year, that translates to a loss of $9,221 – 12.3 percent of total earnings.  For a company with one hundred executives at that salary, it translates to nearly $1 million in lost productivity.
  2. The average office has 19 copies of each document. Spends $20 in labor to file each document. Spends $120 in labor searching for each misfiled document.  Loses one out of every 20 documents. Spends 25 hours recreating each lost document, Pricewaterhouse Coopers
  3. It costs about $25,000 to fill a four drawer filing cabinet and over $2,100 per year to maintain it, Gartner Group, Coopers & Lybrand, Ernst & Young
  4. It costs businesses $120 in labor to track down a misplaced document or $250 in labor to re-create it.
