Thank you, TalkShop, for this enlightening learning experience. From now on, I will avoid wasting my time worrying, I will be living a healthy life style, and I will have a positive outlook in life.
TalkShop workshop in EffectiveTime Management taught me the value of using time efficiently. The program design is very effective in terms of Time Management insights which can be applied to my work and personal life. The topic I like most is procrastination and how to counter it.
The TalkShop Consultant, Ms.Menchie, is very competent in presenting the topics. The workshop made me realize that I have to balance my work and personal life. I rated the workshop 5 in all areas. Thank you TalkShop!
Ann Roselle Marie Fernandez, Effective Time Management, Department of Trade and Industry
I learned how to say NO in a positive way (sandwich style), to prioritize important / urgent and differentiate them from not important matters. I have learned to incorporate and understand more the value of time management in my daily tasks.
The acquired learning made me realize that I need to eliminate procrastination, I realized that time is very important; any delays will greatly impact not only my performance but also my efficiency as a government employee.
TalkShop designed a program that is both substantial and relevant. Aside from theory, learning from other participants opened my eyes to the effects of having poor time management.
Our TalkShop Trainer is a well-versed and extremely competent Speaker. The workshop made me value time more.

I learned much from this workshop. The activities and reflections make the learning easier and never boring. It provides us the choices on how to manage time.
I like the way our TalkShop Trainer presented the ideas through activities. I liked most the exercises on forming the stars while being blindfolded. I also like the presentation on the quadrants because it reflects our attitude towards what is urgent vs. important.
This is a realization. The challenge now is how to apply everything I learned to real-life situations. I am so excited to put all of the learnings to practice.
