“With the TIA system, I have been able to get more focused and get on with things – it’s great to feel much more productive! I have literally doubled my productivity!” J.B., Management Consultant

“This is an excellent course that has been really valuable for me, it is really practical and I’ve changed things right from day one.” T.R. Finance Professional

“I have to say that I am really benefiting from the workshop you ran at Oxford, and in particular from the 5 Minute Manager. Already I feel calmer, and more on top of my workload, and it is true to say that I have been able to tackle some of the bigger topics that I had been putting off. Thanks!” N.R. Director

“I was sceptical that anything could help me with my time management as I’ve been on courses before. However the TIA system is very unique and my day has completely changed. I like the fact that I’m much more aware of myself now and when I fall into bad habits, and I just feel more focused and less stressed. I can juggle demands very easily with the new system. Great stuff!” P.M. IT Project Manager
