  • Loved the way the slides are designed. Not sure if intentional, but even the way they are laid out reflects the concept of Inbox Zero. Gets to the point quickly and cleanly, then moves on :)

  • Wow - this is about as 'content-free' as any presentation I've seen in years, and I work for the Federal Government, so that's saying a lot! Basically a tour de force in presenting David Allen's ideas plus 28 pages of clip art as original thought.
