2018 is here, and there's no better time to keep your resolution of cleaning out your Gmail Inbox.

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.

  • Create or import a presentation.
  • Create and arrange slides.
  • Add content to your slides, including text, images, video and more.
