Gayle Smerdon: Finding Focus: Overcoming Overwhelm and Distraction

In a world enslaved to ‘busy’, this presentation is designed to help the overwhelmed and distracted do what matters and leave the unimportant behind. Enter the Wheel of Overwhelm and identify key strategies for getting the important stuff done - like your own work, looking after your wellbeing, supporting your work team and living a great life.

Gayle Smerdon has spent the last 15 years helping people do work that matters, find solutions that stick, and support people to thrive in the workplace. A workplace culture expert and people nerd, Gayle works with those leaders and teams ready to focus on ONE THING that will make positive change. She is a published author, PhD recipient, and self-confessed learn-aholic. Gayle lives in Melbourne and is the contented slave to her feline overlord, Mr Spooks.
