The True Speed Of Time Management


Mike Vardy


The world is moving at an incredible pace. We are inundated with information 24/7 and are expected to deliver the goods at both work and home while digesting everything that comes our way. It’s a challenge for us to keep up with everything we need to do let alone get ahead so we can spend time on the things we want to do.

In this presentation by productivity strategist Mike Vardy you will learn the one simple thing he did over a decade ago that empowered him to run his days instead of letting his days run him. Whether you prefer to use digital tools or are inclined to use a good old-fashioned pen and paper to manage your time, what Mike will share with you – as he has with clients and audiences working in many disciplines around the world – will help you make every moment matter.

Why Arc?

I’m excited to speak at ARC because I love to share my tactics and insights on personal productivity and time management with creatives in business. Being a creative myself first and foremost, I empathize with anyone trying to strike a balance between delivering quality work with the demands of what you need to do to keep your business thriving instead of simply surviving. The goal of bringing harmony and balance to business life and home life is a challenging one to attain and my aim is to help more people do that. Being able to present my ideas, insights, and information from a stage is one of the best ways I can do that and I’m grateful to do so at ARC 2018.
