Randall Dean, MBA, and author of the recent Amazon.com #1 E-mail Bestseller, Taming the E-mail Beast has more than 20 years of experience
using and teaching an advanced time management/personal
organization system, including systems for effective e-mail management, office clutter reduction, optimizing your Outlook usage, and getting the most from affiliated SmartPhone/PDA devices. He has taught different versions
of his time & e-mail management systems for many prominent organizations including
Procter & Gamble, Michigan State University, University of Chicago, Westinghouse Electric Company, Volvo, The Global Business Travel Association, the Graduate Management Admissions Council, Cal Berkeley, Delphi Automotive, The University of Pittsburgh, Ohio State
University, the Institute of Management Accountants, the National Association for Legal Career Professionals, the Institute of Management Accountants National Conference, the Michigan Association for Continuing Education & Training, and The Michigan, Indiana, and Iowa Societies of Association
Executives for groups
as small as five and as large as 550.
He has personally
tested his time, e-mail, Outlook, and office clutter management systems in major corporate,
academic, and non-profit settings, as well as in small
and fast-paced for-profit companies, and has found the
system to be flexible enough to provide great support
in all of these differing environments. In 2000,
he switched from a paper-based planner time management
system to a SmartPhone / PDA-based time management system, and has
ample experience using and teaching both kinds of systems, including integration with Microsoft Outlook and even Google Apps.
His speaking and training programs are consistently some of the highest-rated programs for the many conferences and clients he speaks for, including major conferences, Fortune 500 organizations, top universities, governmental agencies, and leading nonprofits -- basically anyone struggling to better manage their time, e-mail, SmartPhones, Google apps, and/or Outlook. (And he makes these topics fun and engaging too!)
His effective use of a sophisticated time, e-mail, and related-technology management
system has allowed him to be very successful in several
important professional positions, including Director
of MBA Admissions for the Full-Time Broad MBA Program
at Michigan State University, Market Research Supervisor
for the Rx-to-OTC switch of Prilosec® at Procter &
Gamble, Subscriber Services Coordinator of ADVANCES:
The Journal of Mind-Body Health at The Fetzer Institute,
