Agenda

The GTD Summit will feature a series of compelling and practical roundtable discussions and panels that will provide suggestions, ideas and recommendations on how to make GTD really stick - for you personally or your organization.

You will hear success stories from business leaders and entrepreneurs who have used GTD to help them to transform teams, business units, and lead successful and impacting projects. Inspirational stories from leaders in education, entertainment, medical, non-profits and faith-based groups and communities – who have leveraged GTD to bring value to their organizations.

There will be sessions with David Allen. And other notable speakers such as James Fallows, Guy Kawasaki and General Randy Fullhart.
