World Without Email 2 Hour Online Workshop

In this two-hour World Without Email online workshop, you will have a chance to think about how email has gone beyond a form of messaging to become embedded into the work itself, leading to a constant source of distraction. You will think about the benefit of ‘Deep Work’ and options for email-free working practice.

This workshop is currently available online as Live Online Learning using Zoom for public bookings. We are able to offer classroom sessions for private bookings — please get in touch for availability.

The course will run remotely for a two-hour Live Online session. Please reserve at least a full two hours in your diary for this session.

All learners will need to either install Zoom on their machines or use the Web App in a browser (either Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge are supported). Your link will be included in your joining instructions once you have booked your place — if you haven't received this email then please contact our team.

Learners should log into the training session 10 minutes before the start time to ensure that they have downloaded and set up Zoom correctly. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals.

Your active participation is expected: everyone will be heard and seen throughout, just as they would be if we were in a room together. To be heard, hear and seen you will need a microphone, speakers and camera – if you have a modern laptop that’s all you will need. Remember, you’ll need a quiet place to call from and a decent internet connection is a must.
