The accounting and finance industry is a fast-paced environment, where there are tight deadlines that regularly need to be met. Do your to-do piles only ever seem to get bigger, your inbox only ever become fuller and do you seem to have an ever decreasing amount of time to complete your work in?

The new, updated version of Managing Workload helps you develop techniques to meet deadlines by increasing your productivity in the different aspects of your role. It now features an in-depth section on how to hold effective meetings, as well as brand new information on prioritising, motivation, focus, stress, keeping your email under control, coping with colleagues' expectations and successful collaboration and delegation, amongst other things.
