Overcoming the Email Avalanche: Three Steps to an Empty Inbox - Webinar (10/07/21)

Huge volumes of email are a fact of office life, yet it threatens to overwhelm our work. 

Is there a way to get email under control short of mass deleting your entire inbox?  Yes there is!  In this fun and engaging class, participants will learn how to:

  • Clear out inbox backlog, no matter how large
  • Identify different types of actionable email and respond accordingly
  • Create an efficient organizational structure to their email client
  • Reliably locate archived email
  • Celebrate the joys of an empty inbox! 

Virtual Trainer: Doug Crane

Doug Crane has been a librarian for over twenty years and has been helping librarians and others get their inboxes down to zero since 2012!

He currently serves as Director of the Palm Beach County Library System. He is also the Past Chair of the State Library Council of Florida as well as Past President of the Southeast Florida Library Information Network (SEFLIN).  In 2021 the Florida Library Association recognized Doug as Florida Librarian of the Year. He is a founding member of Palm Beach County Toastmasters Club, where he has earned the Competent Communicator, Competent Leader, and Advanced Leadership Bronze designations. 

In his spare time, he admires his collection of Doctor Who sonic screwdrivers, and relaxes at home with his wife, daughter, dog and cat.
