Gerry Devine - Practice Manager Adviser

Managing your inbox: Keep calm it’s only an email! (video)

As part of First Practice Management (FPM) Group’s ‘aspects of managing’ vlog series, our newest video focuses on how to manage your emails efficiently.

Following on from our last vlog on leadership qualities featuring Charan Sarai, this month’s video is presented by Practice Manager Adviser, Gerry Devine, who focuses on the teachings of David Allen.

Productivity Consultant, David Allen wrote a book called Getting Things Done that revolves around the art of stress-free productivity and pushes a systematic approach. Using David’s teachings as a basis, Gerry discusses a variety of different handy tips and rules to help keep your email inbox under control, including ‘inbox zero’ and ‘the two minute rule’.

These tips are very useful as the majority of NHS email inboxes don’t have the luxury of large amounts of storage. Once your inbox is full, new emails can’t arrive so it is important to keep on top of it.

Take a break from work and watch our newest vlog.

We have attached a copy of the PowerPoint presentation that is featured in the vlog so you can download it and keep for future reference.

If you have any questions regarding any of the topics included in the videos and you’re an FPM Member you can email advice@firstpracticemanagement.co.uk.

Don’t forget you can watch the video on our YouTube channel, where you can also see some of our other vlogs.
