Audrey Thomas: Productivity Trainer, Author and Lean Office Expert
White collar workers waste 40% of their work days because they were never taught organizing skills to cope with increasing work loads.
--Wall Street Journal
"I work with businesses and people who are frustrated by offices, in-boxes and voice-mail systems overflowing with clutter. After nearly two decades, several organizing books and countless speeches, it's hard to believe that I became an organizing expert, author and speaker completely by accident.
In the early 1990’s I began teaching Home Organizing workshops through the Twin Cities Community Education Program. Eventually those workshops drew the attention of a small company by the name of 3M who requested my workshops for their Lunch & Learn program. They had the philosophy that if their employees were happy at home they would be more productive at work.
3M expected 50-75 to attend my lunch-time presentation. Imagine everyone's surprise when over 500 signed up! That's when I realized that what comes so naturally to me, doesn't come easily for others.
Soon my corporate clients were asking for programs on the topic of office organization, paper and email management, and eventually Lean Office and 5S.
When I graduated with a degree in Business Management never did I envision myself as an author or a Professional Speaker that gets to help others make such positive change to their personal and professional lives. Teaching others how to be more organized and productive gives me such satisfaction. The last 20+ years have been quite a ride and more fulfilling than I ever dreamed possible."
"Boeing loved you! You made not only a great impression, but what I am guessing is a rather large impact." -- Eric Glass, Customer Engagement Specialist, The Boeing Company
"Audrey's ability to apply Lean principles to the office environment is unparalleled in my opinion. Her teaching style is engaging and informative... the results immediate."
--Mike Ambrose, Operations Scheduler, The Mayo Clinic
