Future Unleashed – Productivity Clinic Video download

Office Efficiency session (3 hours) video download. Zip file – 182 MB, WMV format. Download and view in full screen mode. Resolution is intentionally reduced to minimize the file size.

The session started with just 6 participants. But it quickly grew to 40+ attendees. I was supposed to do two sessions of 1.5 hours each.
