My Favorite Session! Best Speaker
just heard you in San Jose - you are
you would have talked all week.
You are so on point as usual. After
over 10 years ago your tips and
tools have added to my
productivity in ways that I can't
describe, only because they've
become second-nature. For those of
us who've traded in our
Pony Express stop for email your
type of 'cut to the chase'
training beats the heck out of
plowing through manuals.
I tell everyone I know to take your
teleclasses, attend your
workshops, buy your books, visit the
Institute and most of all LISTEN TO
WHAT PEGGY SAYS!...
No. I take that back!
Make that.. DO what Peggy says!
only word I can say at this moment

an awesome session! Peggy is very down to earth and high energy. She
makes the session [Excel Magic] fun and not high tech so we were
able to learn what she was teaching us.

Internet Strategist, 2TheNextLevel.com
want you to know that at my performance evaluation this year I was
told that if my organizational skills did not improve, my job would
be in jeopardy. I just had my mid-year review and was told that I am
now an A+ performer and my boss is really pleased with my
improvement. As I went through your book, I did a lot of mental
head-slapping, "DUH, why didn't I think of that?!?!?" And I think it
speaks to me because you've been there and you don't give me some
vague theories or ideas of how to be organized -- you tell me what
to do with my stuff! I'm definitely not a born organized person, but
I've discovered that I CAN BE TAUGHT!

your presentation, and I laughed and laughed

this for just anyone....you are just so amazing I want to share
you with everyone I know!
You deserve all
the kudos you can get! You've helped put me
on my path of PURGING! I went home the next day
and cleaned out two of my closets even though
I was exhausted. I'm cleaning out my garage
this weekend and will be working on
my computer files as well! It's nothing I haven't
thought of or heard before. You just have a way of putting it that
made me think..."this is ridiculous, she's right. It's time to stop
the insanity!" I refer to

about how I process and file information. I am now more

how much time gets wasted on unproductive tasks!

message and her presentation of
material. If I could just implement
5 tips from her session my day would
be much better. EXCELLENT!!!!
Fabulous speaker! I wish she had
less information to share for the
time given. I left on brain
overload. I would have loved a whole
day with just her.

seen, and it only took an hour.

been just over a week since your
presentation at the USTA event in
Atlanta, and I wanted to take some
time to thank you for your
professionalism and knowledge of the
subjects you presented. Since I've
returned, the word "Purge" has been
constant in my vocabulary. I've also
acted upon it as well. I really
appreciate your insight and humor as
it relates to the topic of making
work, and life, a little bit less
cluttered by becoming more
organized. I hope you receive an
invitation to come back to future
USTA events. We will be much better

Peggy you were a hit with ISES Atlanta! I’ve gotten several

presentation was amazing and you have started our new year off with a
bang for ISES Atlanta – we can’t wait to have you back!

Peggy, I just had to write this
note tonight [Freelance Forum]
while your presentation was
still fresh in my mind. You were
fantastic! For every difficult
truth, you provided humorous
commentary or an anecdote to
make it go down easier. You also
provided this anal-retentive,
"pretty organized" person
several "ah-ha" moments.

you did yesterday!

Hi Peggy – Since I work from my
home, I cleaned and organized my
home (my husband has always been
great at organizing…so he took
care of my closet). Then,
I organized my office, desk and
cleaned out the filing
cabinets…threw out a lot of
“stuff”. My computer files
were pretty organized, so minor
changes were made. I
prioritized my goals and work on
the ones that are most
important. I’m learning to
stay focused on my goals, and
have said “No” to some of the
things that aren’t a priority.
Currently, I’m creating
processes for the things that
are repetitive. And then,
I will be putting the info in
Excel/Word. I’m a work in
progress… and so far, the tips
you shared in your Time
Management session at
priceless…especially because you
put them into steps that are
easy to understand and

Independent Writer, Producer,
Greetings from Cambodia! We would like to express our sincere thanks
to you for providing us a great training on the organized meeting
planner... Through the training, we have been achieving tremendous
success in organizing two regional workshops which we admitted it is
the result of the important experiences got from the training.
Moreover, we have a great time to meet with you and learn new
skills, the Microsoft tips, especially we are so thankful for giving
us the books with titles: Conquer Email Overload and Just Show Me
Which Button to Click which are very useful for us
and all colleagues in the office.
