2017 is here, and there's no better time to keep your resolution of cleaning out your Gmail Inbox.

Is your Inbox overflowing with messages—some you need, and some you don’t? Do you feel like you spend as much time searching for emails as you do responding to them? Do you have that sinking feeling in your stomach every morning when you first log in to e-mail?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then this could be the course for you. Learn a few simple, effective strategies to help you manage and work more efficiently with your e-mail to free up more time for everything else. This session can be your first step towards using e-mail to help you be more productive, rather than delay your completing other tasks.

Throughout the session, you'll have the opportunity to use Gmail and start organizing your emails based on the tips covered during the session.
